    Friday Fuzzies: Where does your pet sleep?
    Annie_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Pets often find odd and funny places to sleep. Some cats hide in closets, dogs flop on your favorite rug, ferrets dig into your dirty laundry. Where does YOUR pet like to sleep? Where is the most interesting place you've ever found your animal baby snoozing?

    My cat Charlie liked to sleep on a bookcase shelf in my husband's home office when he was a small kitten. I think it's because he could be close by to my husband and so he could see anyone walking in to the room!

    My first cat, a Siamese chocolate point, loved to sleep in a facial tissue box when she was teething! She would crawl into the box, lay down on the tissues, and bite the cardboard box edges!

    Our dog has a few favorite places. At night, he prefers to sleep with my husband and me, but will sleep with one of the kids if he can't sneak into our room.

    During the day, he generally sprawls on the tile in front of the fireplace or right against the front door.

    The cats are way more interesting. They have a climbing tree, and one curls up on the top disk while the other sleeps in the bottom scoop, most of the time. That is their daytime haunt. Sometimes the girl cat will stretch out on the floor right beside the wall on her back.

    At night the little girl kitty generally likes to lie down beside me on the couch all stretched out on her back, her feet touching the back of the couch and her head hanging over the side.

    Our old male cat likes to snooze on the arm of the couch or sprawl out under the coffee table in the fetal position.

    I'll see if I can grab a photo and post it later. They are sleeping now. Imagine that.
