20 Strange Places Where Cats Have Fallen Asleep

It is a well known fact that cats are weird. They are most likely creatures from outer space that accidentally landed on Earth because they were too busy napping to steer their cat spaceship. Luckily, Earth is full of humans who love cats and are willing to do everything in their power to spoil them rotten. Only the most expensive tin of cat food, and the most luxurious beds rivalling human beds for our cat masters! Even with these wonderful beds, cats continue to sleep in some strange, and what seem to be very uncomfortable places.

I have a few theories on why cats sleep in such strange places. Perhaps a cat's own fur is fluffier and softer than any bed we could ever give them. Perhaps cats are not made to withstand fatigue and when a wave of tiredness overcomes, they have no choice but to sleep in that exact spot. Or, maybe succumbing to comfort provided by humans is seen a sign of weakness.

I hereby present you 20 weirdest places where cats have fallen asleep. What is your theory on why cats sleep in such strange places? Let us know in the comments!
