4. Loaf of Bread
The loaf is a popular position where your cat is sitting upright with his front paws tucked in under his body. It makes him look just like a loaf of bread. Your cat will often close his eyes in a sign of complete contentment.
When he’s in the loaf position, however, it’s likely a sign he’s not in a deep sleep. Usually, it’s just a quick catnap in this position, and he is usually still fairly alert. Even so, this is a very relaxed cat sleeping position that lets him get some rest while keeping watch over his realm.
5. Eyes Half Shut
You’ve probably seen your kitty appearing to snooze with his eyes half-closed and half-open. This is so they can wake up quickly if they need to since they don’t want to miss any possible threats that might come up.
If you see your kitty overlord in this position, it might be an indicator that he’s watching out for something in the home. Maybe there are unfamiliar people around or something has recently changed.
This is probably one of the weirdest cat sleeping positions around. In this position, your cat appears to be a veritable contortionist with his legs sticking out in all directions, his body half hanging off the couch, and his head twisted around. It doesn’t seem to be a very comfortable position.
If you’re wondering what it means, so do the experts. There’s no real science behind why your cat might choose this sleeping position. Maybe he just always wanted to be in the circus?!
