Saturday Silliness: Where do cats sleep?

Where do cats sleep? Like 800-pound gorillas, cats sleep anywhere they want.

Cats pride themselves on NOT being ordinary. They are creative, inventive, independent, unique creatures. They have live-and-let-live attitudes (unless you forget to feed them or interrupt their naps), and they have the most flexible bones in the world. Cats have their own point of view on just about everything.

Here are a few amusing kitty siestas spots as found on And My Cat, Petflow, Cat Swag, E-Cute, 1,000,000 Pictures, or from Internet friends.

The all-time favorite place for cats to sleep is in a plain, old box. Size doen’t matter. This demonstrates flexibility and adaptability.

Sleeping in a basket is another popular choice. The bird is optional. Picture: Haryo Bagus Handako

Of course, some humans have designed special beds for their spoiled sweet little kitties.      1,000,000 Pictures

Ah yes, another human indulges provides the kitties with these adorable bunk beds.

Bunk beds? How about octo-beds?

Maybe it’s a  little lumpy and small, but a Barbie bed is not a bad place for a nappy.

Some kitties have their own idea about perfect sleeping arrangements.

Sleeping in a violin case? Whatever.

Sometimes ya gets so tired, ya falls asleep wherever ya falls asleep.

And sometimes your buddies find a good place for a nap, and you just have to join them.

At least it’s cooler here!

The queen’s bed is always a nice place to snuggle.

Shhhh. Don’t tell Mama where I am!

Babysitting is such hard work that a nap is often required. (Laps for naps!)

Buddha’s lap is a little harder, but it’s still an okay place for a little shuteye.

But this is the best place for a cuddle-nap: in Mama’s arms when she’s feeling punky.

What is the most unusual place you have seen a cat sleep? And where is your favorite place for a cat-nap?

  1. I had a cat who used to sleep in a cooking pot. Our current cat sleeps in our canvas grocery bags. 🙂

  2. We used to have a cat named Tom, and a dog named Duke. Duke slept curled in a ball, and Tom slept nestled inside Duke’s limbs. They got along really well…
    Love your cat pix!

  3. Here’s a couple:

    In my motorcycle helmet.

    On my motorcycle seat.

  4. This is too precious! Maybe the easier question to answer is, “Where don’t cats sleep?”

    I envy their ability to Enjoy the Moment, pretty much anywhere.

  5. My aunt had a cat who would disappear for hours but if you opened a paper bag she was immediately inside the sack before you could do anything with it and would then curl up and go to sleep. I had one who slept in the bathroom sink. If the water was dripping she’d come and nag me until I’d go in and turn the faucet off.

  6. I haven’t had a cat since the allergies set in back when I was 7. But before then, our beautiful white cat, Frosty, with one blue and one green eye used to sleep curled up in the front paws of our poodle, Jacquo.

  7. Is there anything cuter than creative catnaps? I know a certain feline who’s especially fond of the front porch planter when the flowers aren’t in bloom.

  8. Thanks for the giggles. Great shots.

    I read somewhere about being sued using pictures without written permission. Be careful out there, it cost them thousands. 🙂

  13. I loved these photos. During my recovery, my cat’s favorite place was on my chest. She kept a close eye on me, when she wasn’t napping herself.

  14. AWESOME post!! Those are the best pictures ever!!

  15. Inside a motorcycle helmet and a dog dish. I thought the dog dish was the really strange place.
