Cute Cats Create Interesting Shapes When They Take Naps Together

Cats love sleeping, and cats spend most of the day taking naps. Kitties also like to sleep in strange, most often confined, and small places.

It is no wonder that most funny cat photos are about cats sleeping in boxes, glasses, sinks, shoes, laundry racks, etc. But cats are not interesting only when they are solo.

Did you know that when cats sleep together, they tend to create interesting forms? People are sharing pictures of their cats sleeping in the strangest positions together while forming unusual shapes.

We have selected some of the most interesting cat photos, and we know you are going to like them.

Why do some felines prefer dozing with fellow animal buddies, and how can they twist their bodies like that?  Celia Haddon, a feline behaviorist who clarified that such conduct is a sign of cat friendship.

“Cats keep their friends close and their enemies at a distance. They naturally socially distance strangers.” While numerous felines live happily in the same home with other cats, they often stay away from each other “because they are acquaintances, not true friends.

” Furthermore, “cats that dislike each other will not sleep touching.” A clinical feline behaviorist Trudi Atkinson said that felines who are in the same social group would often snooze and rest “cuddled up.”

Trudi noted that “not all cats that live together do consider themselves to be in the same social group as their feline housemates.”

The other incredible thing about cats is their flexibility: “Their spine rotates far more than ours does. They have special cushioned discs between the vertebrae.”

“They also don’t have a collar bone attached to their shoulder blade. Instead, their shoulder blade is attached to the rest of the body with muscles, not bone.”

Celia clarified that these two exceptional characteristics allow cats to get great flexibility.

One more explanation for cats sleeping all twisted up has to do with temperature. If it’s hot, felines relax and frequently snooze with their belly exposed.

But, when it’s cold, they sleep tight to keep the warmth in. “If it is cold, cats that are friends probably sleep with more of their bodies touching,” Celia said.

She also added that if humans tried to twist their bodies as cats do, “we would feel uncomfortable or even in pain so that we couldn’t sleep in these positions.”

She added that felines often get more careful about where they take a nap as they get older: “That is often because, like us, they get arthritis, so they need more comfort.”

Celia said it’s totally ok for humans to sleep with their feline friends, fine as long they both feel comfortable. “Cats enjoy it because we give off heat, so we are like electric blankets for them,” she explained.

We are not likely to squash them while asleep because they have a sixth sense. And as a bonus for us, their purrs help us relax and sleep better.
