Top common cat sleeping positions.
- Half-Eye shut
- Sideways sleeper
- All curled up
In the belly-up position, if you come across your cat, you should feel
honored: Cats normally only sleep this way when they feel extremely comfortable and healthy.
Her most fragile body part is your cat's stomach, so willingly revealing
it ensures she is relaxed enough to offer up her most maternal instincts.
Cats have plenty of sleep.
(They even dream!) But the great thing about felines is that they can be awake and unconscious at
the same time, an ability that is invaluable in the wild where they must be vigilant to their environment.
If your cat is sleeping with one eye open and one eye closed, he
is likely to be both sleeping and alert enough to respond to an potential danger.
A sideways sleeper, like the bellyup pose, indicates your cat is very relaxed and in a deep sleep. In this place, his weak stomach is
very exposed and his arms are spread out. He feels adequately secure and content not to stay in an alert, shallow sleep.
All curled up
With her tail across her neck and her head tucked into her
lap, you always see your cat curled up. It's the quintessential cat pose!
For good reason, this is one of the most common cat sleeping positions: in the wild, animals sleep in this position to retain warmth while maintaining vital organs.
