Cats enjoy sleeping. They do it all the time. It doesn’t matter to them if they are twisted up like a pretzel while they do it. We’ve put together a collection of some of the most adorable sleeping cats ever captured on camera.
What shirt pockets are really for
Have you ever wondered what those front pockets are for on shirts? Why they are for kittens to sleep in, of course. This little one is all tucked away and ready for sleep.
Your arm is my pillow
There is something about human limbs that cats seem to find so comfortable. Be it a leg, an arm, or a soft lap, cats want to sleep on us.
I’m still awake, I’m still awa…
This little one is trying to do whatever they can to stay away. They are hanging in there but this is not a fight they are ultimately going to win.
Sleeping on carpet
Carpet can be a big deal for pets. They either love it or hate it. It can work as a nice back scratcher and as a nice place for a nap.
Look at how perfectly relaxed this kitten is. Their muscles are so relaxed that their little tongue is sticking out. What a relaxed kitten!
Too tired to poop
This kitten was on their way to the litter box when they encountered an obstacle. They were tired. Really tired. They’ll get to the litter box once their nap is over.
Neck stretch nap
This kitten was photographed in this position after being like that for over an hour. They might wake up with something of a sore neck.
The perfect nap
How many of you reading this are daydreaming of napping with a group of cats like this? It’s almost like you’ve never truly napped until you’ve napped with 5 stretching kittens before.
Do not change the channel
This little one was very concerned someone would turn off their show while they napped. They left their show on paws. They were watching the Evening Mews.
Flexible cat sleeps in the shape of a heart
This cat fell asleep in a position that looks like the shape of a human heart. Clearly, this cat is into yoga.
It sort of looks as though this cat requires some assembly. As if it came from Ikea and we need an Allen key to put all the parts together.
Preparing for belly rubs
This kitten has clearly figured out that life is all about belly rubs. If they sleep like this perhaps it will lead to more belly rubs when they wake up.
This little kitten slept on a shoe
Shoes might not be the best smelling things but kittens don’t mind. They’ll sleep on anything and the smell probably reminds them of their human’s feet.
If it’s warm, it can be slept on
Cats find the strangest things comfortable. Anything warm is a suitable place to take a nap. If that means sleeping on your charging cord, then that is what they will do.
Holding thier own head
Check out the cat’s arms in this photo. What strange pretzel-like shape have they gotten into that they can hold up their head like this?
Keeping your kitten fresh
The popular saying is “If I fits, I sits.” This cat figured out they fit in this food container and so they took a nap inside it. It sounds like such a simple and relaxing life.
There is nothing unusual about how this cat is sleeping. This is the classic adorable kitten napping position and it is too good not to share.
Sleeping on a cat tower
Cat towers are an awesome way to make your cat’s environment more stimulating. Sometimes it’s so stimulating that it tuckers the little felines out and they have to take a nap.
Yoga practicioners are jealous of this cat
Many people who practice yoga struggle to bring their noses to their knees. This cat knows not this struggle. They are the yogi supreme.
Don’t let the light in
Isn’t it adorable when cats fall asleep with one arm covering their eyes so the light doesn’t wake them up? That’s smart sleeping.
The first few days of spring are the best. You just want to spend all day outdoors and maybe even take a nap on the porch.
Face buried in a pillow
It’s not quite clear how cats are able to breathe when they sleep like this but many do seem to find this position pretty comfortable.
We are one. We are ginger.
Look at these two color-coordinated sleeping cats. It’s possible no two cats could ever feel more comfortable sleeping next to each other.
Sleeping on onions
Many cat owners know the struggle of trying to grow plants at home. You have to be careful to only get plants that are safe from them and if you try to grow something like onions, they will do stuff like this.
Taking a nap with the dog
Cats and dogs don’t always get along. They do bond over one shared interest, however. Sleeping. They both love sleeping and are really good at it.
The ever-evolving cat/laptop relationship
Cats and laptops have a long and strange history. The warmth they provide is pleasing to cats but humans often play with laptops instead of cats, and that’s just not right.
Noodle kitten has a nap
This long and lanky kitten likes to sleep while they are all stretched out. It’s a long and lazy day!
This cat looks as though they have been stretching randomly for several hours and somehow ended up in this position. Somehow, they still seem to be incredibly comfortable.
These two cats have figured out the best way to nap is to do it together. This cuddle puddle sure looks comfortable.
Sleeping in a strawberry
According to the person who posted this photo, this cat’s name is tomato and they like to sleep inside a strawberry. They look very peaceful.
Boxes are little cat houses
Every person who loves cats knows just how much most cats seem to love boxes. It’s like they are little cat houses made specifically for them.
That seems secure
This doesn’t look like the most secure place to sleep but that doesn’t bother this cat. It’s nap time and nothing is going to stop that.
Tucked in cat
Cats don’t always enjoy being tucked in. When they allow for it, however, they look so peaceful, relaxed, and comfortable.
The perfect window hammock
This cat’s owner built them a wonderful little cat hammock near the window. What a beautiful place to get some sleep while also getting some sun.
A roof over their head
Here we see a cat resting under their human’s laptop tray. It’s nice to sleep knowing you’ve got a secure roof over your head.
Even though this cat looks as though their head might fall clean off, they are so comfortable that they’ve drifted right off to sleep.
Cat bed on human bed
If your cat likes to sleep on your bed, you might try building them a little mini cat bed on your bed. Then at least everyone knows where to go.
Let’s share the cat bed
The only thing better than a good, comfortable nap is sharing it with your best friend.
We promise this is a cat
You might not be able to tell with all the floof floofing around this picture, but there is actually a cat in there.
This is a perfectly reasonable way to sleep
This cat just sums up how cats sleep so perfectly. They stretch, they twist, and they end up falling asleep in positions that would cause you or I to be sore for weeks.
