Last week we talked about how the cats sleep. Now we’ll see where they sleep. For our inside cats, the house offers a world of opportunities for places to sleep. Here are a few.
One of Zoe’s favorite places is in his carrier. It’s kind of strange since the only place he ever goes in his carrier is to the vet, and he usually ends up getting a shot there. He usually cries all the way to the vet’s.
In the winter Chloe usually spends all day outside and then comes in at night. She usually sleeps on the end of the bed right next to my feet.
Sometimes when something spooks her, or Zoe is chasing her around, she’ll get between the headboard and the wall.
Smokey usually stays outside at night, but during the day he likes to go down into the basement and sleep on an old piece of carpet lying on an unfinished door. You can’t quite see here that we have a fire in the stove in the upper left corner. That’s what he likes.
I think Sylvester is the champion. He has a bunch of favorite places. Here he is in a dog bed near the kitty scratching post/playhouse.
Sometimes he likes to squeeze into the tube to sleep.
Other times he likes to get high.
Smokey, Sylvester and Zoe spend the night outside now, even in the cold weather. They all have several choices for warm shelter, but we aren’t sure what they use . Rusty and Dusty are strictly outside cats. The only time they have ever come in, it was just long enough to find another door to get back outside. We think they sleep in a two-story cathouse Mark built, but sometimes we think Dusty may sleep in a culvert.
