"I am pet. I sleep where I want."29 hilariously awkward places pets went to sleep. Cats spend between 16 and 20 hours a day asleep, so they are more statistically probable to fall asleep in an awkward position than anyone else you know. Yes, we know that cats are usually agile, elegant creatures that always land on their feet, but those rules sometimes get tossed with the kitty litter when a snooze beckons.
Dogs may be man's best friend, but they still sleep 12 to 14 hours a day, so they require more zzz's than you do. It may not seem like it when they wake you up early on Saturday morning for a walk, but they do.
In this slideshow, you'll see cats fall asleep in dishwashers, on precariously thin railings, on people's heads, in coffee mugs, in baskets, on top of old-school computer monitors, in shoes, on top of dogs, in flower pots, on Xerox machines, in sinks, and sometimes literally between a rock and a hard place. Dogs often fall asleep on their backs with their bellies exposed, which means that they feel safe in their surroundings and with you. Pooches are funniest when they fall asleep in what looks like a human sitting position, and we found plenty of examples. We even found a few birds who snoozed in a curious position.
