45 Pics Of Cats Caught Sleeping Like Total Doofuses

When the internet became popular, cats also grew in popularity. There is a reason for that, of course: They are super cute, easy to get and maintain, and live long lives. Who wouldn’t want a pet like that? That’s not the only reason why people became so obsessed with these little guys, though; they are also super smart, sassy, and weird.

As every cat owner can attest to, cats have some pretty strange quirks that not many animals display. Have you seen the way they sleep most of the time? Absolute wackos, if you ask us! Well, if you do like your daily dose of cats being their amazing selves online, look no further: Here are 45 Pics of Cats Caught Sleeping Like Total Doofuses!

Warmth like no other

If you ever had a cat, then you know how much they love to cuddle with us. No matter how grumpy they are, when they feel cold and lonely, up our beds they go. Considering how clean and warm cats are, they’re definitely welcomed cuddle buddies.

If you have more than one cat, though, you probably don’t experience this very often. Yes, they love cuddling with us, but they certainly prefer cuddling with their own species more. More fur equals more warmth, after all! Who wouldn’t want that?

Living mattress

No matter who you are or where you come from, when it comes to bedtime, absolutely no one enjoys sleeping in a stiff mattress. Everybody likes comfort, after all, and no one should settle for anything but perfection when it comes to their bedroom accommodations.

Thinking about that, the owner of the cats above decided to buy a bed for each one of them. What she didn’t expect, though, is that they would find only one bed to be comfortable enough. Unfortunately for the white one, he was the perfect mattress for the others.

If I fits…

One well-known fact about cats is that they love small spaces. No matter how tight it may be, if they fit in it, you can bet they will sit in it! Empty boxes, drawers, laundry baskets, under furniture—it doesn’t really matter.

There is nothing cats love more than their cardboard boxes, though. Some people say the only reason for you to buy your cat a bed, is to give them the box it came in so they can sleep comfortably. That’s probably what happened here.

Comfy pals

If you know anything about cats, then you’re familiar with how much they love sleeping. Sure, until they’re about a year old they’re pretty active, especially at night, when you’re trying to catch your own Z’s! But after that is nighty-night all day long.

Image Courtesy of Reddit/prakaz

One great thing to know about this beloved habit of theirs, is that it is possible to know just how much they love you by observing them while they’re asleep. Bellies up means they absolutely trust you not to harm them. Pretty cool, right?

Sleepy kittens

Some people like dogs, while others prefer cats. When it comes to kittens and puppies, though, everyone agrees they are absolutely the cutest. There is something about looking at babies, no matter the species, that makes our hearts flutter and our brains go numb!

Image Courtesy of Imgur/spydiddley404

These two kittens here, for example—we know nothing about them, except that they are the bestest cats in the world right now. Look at their fluffy little bellies and their deliciously small paw pads! No wonder they’re making a heart with their bodies.

Three’s a crowd

Have you ever heard the idiom “Two’s company, three’s a crowd”? It is usually used to point to a situation where the inclusion of a third person would cause discomfort to the other two. Such as a date, for example!

Image Courtesy of Twitter/@wanekohonpo

Apparently, this idiom doesn’t apply only to humans. If you take a look at the picture above, we’re pretty sure you can figure out who the odd one out is! We wonder what he did to deserve that—and hopefully the two lovebirds can forgive him before it’s too late.

OUR bed

One thing about cats is that they don’t really care about inconveniencing their owners. They will choose the worst hour of the day to get the zoomies and destroy half your house. Also, if you don’t serve dinner in time, they will meow at the top of their lungs no matter what!

Image Courtesy of Reddit/epilis

These two certainly didn’t care to claim their owner’s bed as their own, that’s for sure! And they couldn’t stay in a small spot either. They wanted to be close to each other while still taking over most of the mattress. Cats, right?

Yogi cats

Some people think yoga is a mom’s pastime, but in reality, it has many benefits that are great for everyone. You become more flexible, stronger, and it also improves your balance. Your breathing and circulatory health also improves greatly! Who wouldn’t want that?

Image Courtesy of Twitter/@nyannyan_ta_mi_

Even cats are getting into yoga now, apparently! They’re flexible and strong enough; we all know that, but what they’re probably seeking is the connection and mindfulness yoga brings. These two here got so relaxed while practicing, they actually fell asleep!


It is a well-known fact about cats that they love eating. Dry food, or wet food, it doesn’t matter. They will eat all day long if you let them, which can be super cute if you’re giving them a nice treat every once in a while, but can also lead to obesity.

Image Courtesy of Reddit/sleepygamer92

The owners of the tabby cat above probably only feed him twice a day to avoid him getting too fat, so he had no other choice but to eat his friend whole. A sad situation, really, but what could he do? He was hungry!


Have you ever heard the idiom “afraid of your own shadow”? It means someone is very timid and easily scared. Well, if your shadow could somehow detach itself and lay down on top of you while you’re resting, you’d probably be afraid too!

Image Courtesy of Reddit/snoweagle831

We’re joking, of course. What’s really happening in the image above is a reunion between two brothers who got separated after one of them ran away. The black one, Charlie, managed to escape from home. Now that he is back, all he wants is to sleep with his brother, Max.

Happy together

Some people think cats are cold, selfish creatures that don’t ever show love to their owners. That, of course, is not really true. It may take a while, but if a cat trusts you, they will find ways to show their love no matter what.

Image Courtesy of Twitter/sibuscalaverdad

That is true not only for their humans, but also for other pets around the house. They may need some time to get used to their new friends, but once they warm up to them, your house will never be the same again and scenes like the one above will be common.

Symmetrical buddies

For some reason, our human brains love symmetry. It’s everywhere, really; just take a look at your cell phone or your computer monitor. Even your kitchen cabinets look better when everything is symmetrical! But looking at man-made objects is not the only way to find it!

Image Courtesy of Instagram/claytonchancegraham

Symmetry also exists in nature. Mother nature is a chaotic creature, that’s for sure, but even she enjoys a bit of symmetry every now and then. Some tree species, some animal patterns, even the way these two cats are sleeping, are symmetrical! How cool is that?


When we enjoy someone’s company, like our friends or a romantic partner, we want to keep them around all the time. That’s normal human behavior and goes back to when we lived in caves. It’s easier to survive if you enjoy the people around you, after all!

Image Courtesy of Twitter/@rNJ25JQKk8WpGbP

Some animals also create bonds like that. Cats are usually not that sociable, but they can also bond to other cats and animals in general, just like the picture above shows. These two cats love each other so much, their tails are actually entwined!

Is this a Naruto reference?

If you don’t know anything about Naruto or anime in general, the cats below will appear to be sleeping in a weird position and that’s it. If you’re a Naruto fan, though, you know exactly what this particular shape means!

Image Courtesy of Imgur/lifonaut

It’s the Mangekyō Sharingan, of course! Basically, it’s an eye ability that grants super cool moves and powers to its user. Powerful as they may be, though, if cats were somehow incorporated in them, we are sure no one would ever resist their use.

A tail about love

Love is one of the most beautiful feelings in the world. It is the air beneath humanity’s wings and nothing could ever be achieved without it. Many people say that the ability to feel love is what separates us from other animals, but we’re not so sure about that!

Image Courtesy of Reddit/Vtscott

Those people probably never had a pet in their lives or never saw two friendly animals interact with each other. Love is obviously there; they just show it differently. These two cats here, for example, love each other so much even their tails know it!

The new sequel to CatDog

There is nothing funnier than a TV show about a cat and a dog living together. Except, of course, if they were conjoined twins joined by the hip. That’s exactly the premise of CatDog. But did you know an exciting sequel is on the way? Its name is CatCat!

Image Courtesy of Twitter/@fuji_ayako

That is obviously not true, but we feel like the cats above would jump at the opportunity to star on such a sequel. They’re already practicing for their roles—look at that; method acting at its finest! In all seriousness, though, why are cats so silly?

Roommates since the womb

For some reason, babies love to be reminded of their time inside their mother’s womb. If you think about it, it is completely understandable—they were safe, warm and well-fed in their mother’s tummy. That’s not something solely exclusive to humans, though.

Image Courtesy of Twitter/@HorneKidwell

This phenomenon can also be observed in cats. The way kittens sleep when they are very young, for example, is very similar to the position they had inside the womb. These two are probably used to sleeping like that since before birth. Pretty cool, right?


Looking at the picture below, one may wonder why cats are so weird. They’re always jumping on stuff, lying around in the most uncomfortable positions, meowing at walls…And that’s not even the whole list of quirks of these magnificently weird creatures!

Image Courtesy of Reddit/punk_a**

These two greet their owner like this every day when he comes home from work. On one hand, exposing their bellies like this is a sign that they trust him. On the other, there is absolutely no reason for them to be lying like this! The machine is not even warm; it is broken!

Long boi

If you like felines in general, then you’re probably of the opinion that the bigger the cat, the better. Tigers, jaguars, cheetahs—if they’re fluffy, we want to pet them! We can’t really have lions at home, unfortunately, but this owner found the perfect solution for that.

Image Courtesy of Reddit/NerdyConspiracyChick

What’s better than one average-sized, domesticated cat? A super long one, of course! Just plop it inside this machine here and it will come out all stretched just like spaghetti! We’re just joking, of course; that’s actually two cats, which is almost as good as one super long one.

Late for work

It’s impossible to get any work done if you have cats in the house and they decide they want your full attention. You probably see it online all the time—cats jumping on keyboards, standing in front of the TV, and running through your legs while you try to sweep the floor!

Image Courtesy of Twitter/@SAKU02326

Sometimes, they’ll just jump on your lap and beg to be petted. “Just remove them”, you may be thinking. Good luck with that! You better tell your boss you’re arriving late today, especially if, like the person above, you have two needy cats sleeping on top of you!

Sweet kisses

For some reason, some people don’t believe animals can show affection. We believe these people most likely never had pets in their lives, otherwise they’d know better. Cats and dogs can and will show their love for you in their own unique ways.

Image Courtesy of Reddit/pongpingtaybell

They’ll also show their love to other pets you may have, even if they’re from the same species. Take these two cats here, for example. They certainly care for each other and have no problem showing it, that’s for sure.

Too much fluff

We all know animals aren’t as affected by the weather as we are, but this is just ridiculous! There is just too much fluff here and our huge, wrinkled human brains simply cannot comprehend how they are not melting away from all the heat being generated.

Image Courtesy of Instagram/renley_eli

Don’t think that’s warm at all? Then put on the thickest coat you have and go cuddle with someone who’s also wearing winter clothes. We guarantee you won’t last five minutes before taking a cold shower to cool off! These cats are absolute champions.

Tonk trio

Looking at the picture below, you may be led to believe you’re looking at three Siamese siblings sleeping together. You’d only be partially right, though. Yes, there are three cats asleep, but they are not Siamese at all, but actually Tonkinese ones!

Image Courtesy of Instagram/trio_of_tonks

These breeds are very similar if you don’t know what to look for, but Bailey, Biscuit and Brodie here— those are their names, by the way—are very much Tonkinese! This breed is a mix of both Siamese and Burmese cats and definitely take from the best parts of each one!

Man’s actual best friend

For a long time, people have said that dogs are a man’s best friend, but, for some reason, recently things have started to change. Now, it’s not uncommon to find men with cats as pets instead of dogs, even if they have been considered “girly” for a long time.

Image Courtesy of Reddit/yoyoadrienne

Just take a look at the picture above. The man is sleeping alongside not just one or two kittens, but actually three! He and his wife are foster parents for cats, but we have no idea how they can ever let these little cuties move away.

Cat soup

While online, you’ll see plenty of pictures, videos and comments pointing out cats are, in fact, made of liquid. Not only do they fit anywhere they want to, they also assume the thing’s shape, just like water—the perfect disciples of Bruce Lee.

Image Courtesy of Twitter/@midorimushi8969

As you can see above, these two cats have gotten into a bowl-shaped part of their cat tree and become the bowl itself. Unfortunately for them, two cats are a bit too much and they are starting to spill out of their cozy little spot. Someone bring us a spoon!

Feline headwear

For many decades, hats were the epitome of fashion. Everyone, no matter how poor they were, had at least a pair of hats—one for everyday wear and one for formal occasions. Things came to a halt around the 50’s and today very few people still wear them.

Image Courtesy of Twitter/@kobonona

This cat here doesn’t really care about that. He loves hats and won’t be caught without them, no matter what. Sometimes they’re a bit unconventional, like the one he’s wearing above, but he says those are just fashion statements. What a cool cat!

Caught in the act

Dogs are notoriously bad liars, as many, many YouTube videos can attest. If they’re ever caught in the act of doing something wrong around the house, they will look and act extremely guilty. “innocent till proven guilty” simply doesn’t exist for them!

Image Courtesy of Twitter/@GREENDEVIL8578

Cats, on the other hand, are much better at this whole lying thing! They’ll do something wrong while looking directly at you and will walk away with not even a smidge of shame! That’s why we wonder just what exactly was it these two were caught doing! Look at their faces!

From generation to generation

If you think about it, human babies and kittens are very similar: Both are basically useless and helpless when they are born. The difference is the human body is pretty harmless in general, while cats have vicious claws and teeth to protect their offspring!

Image Courtesy of Reddit/MissyK81

Kittens need plenty of attention to learn the ropes of life. It’s not rare to see mother cats teaching her children how to hunt, for example! this cat here, though, is used to a more civilized life – All she’s teaching her baby is how to nap on the couch!

Gamer cats

If you don’t know what “teabagging” is, congratulations; you’re not a gamer! If you do know what that is, shame on you! Anyway, one of these cats is clearly better at FPS than the other and he has no problem showing his superiority.

Image Courtesy of Imgur/sylvaGemDriver

He could have kept his taunting for their in-game sessions, though. The world definitely didn’t have to see this image. His poor brother will be laughed at every time he leaves the house to go meowing in the rooftops! Now excuse us; we need to bleach our eyes.

True friends

People say that when you spend a lot of time with someone, you end up absorbing some of their kinks and quirks. We can observe that among a group of friends, for example – After a while, everyone is speaking and acting pretty similar to each other!

Image Courtesy of Twitter/@hakobiyatoritin

Animals don’t really have that. Each cat and dog out there have their own personalities and they don’t usually change like that. Unless, of course, you’re the cat above! He’s so used being around his friend, he’s even getting a bit of ginger transferred to him!

Purrfect friendship

Humans are social animals and, as such, we take great joy in being surrounded by our friends. There is nothing better than getting together every now and again to just have a couple of drinks and talk our problems away.

Image Courtesy of Reddit/Knob-Poob-Peelb

We are not the only social animals out there, though! Cats also love having a friend or two around and, if you’re lucky, you’ll stumble upon scenes like the one above. We definitely could learn some things from our furry buddies.

The fluffiest optical illusion

Optical illusions are basically images made to trick our brains. Man-made illusions have been around for hundreds of years, but there are accidental, natural ones as well. Either way, they will mess with your mind! Case in point, the picture below:

Image Courtesy of Reddit/j3ffr33d0m

At first, we thought the upper head belonged to the cat in the right, but the more we look at it, the less certain we become! We’re pretty sure the upper head belongs to the cat in the left now, but maybe we’re wrong again!

Siblings everywhere

If you think having older or younger siblings is bad, imagine what your life would be if all of you were born at the same time.You wouldn’t have a single day of peace in your life! Sure, your childhood adventures would be much cooler, but still.

Image Courtesy of Reddit/NARWHAL_POTATO

That’s exactly what cats go through! Female cats can have up to twelve kittens in a single litter. Now, imagine you were born into this family. No, thank you! Not even your nap time would be peaceful with so many brothers and sisters around!


Children love their little games, no matter how simple they seem to be. For example, when we were younger, we could spend hours playing patty-cake and not bat an eye about it. Who would have thought that slapping our hands together to the rhythm of a catchy song could be so fun.

Image Courtesy of Imgur

Apparently, not even cats are immune to the simple distractions in life! Just take a look at the picture above and you’ll see. These two spent so long playing patty-cake, they actually fell asleep! Children do love their silly little games, don’t they?

Fluffy pile-up

Some humans love sharing a bed with another person, while others don’t. It is totally normal to have a preference when it comes to cuddling with someone. For cats, though, cuddling is not only absolutely necessary, it is basically a way of life.

Image Courtesy of Facebook/FakerLOL

Like us, they cuddle because they enjoy the sensation of being close together with another cat. Not only that, it also helps to keep their body temperature high during the day. That’s why you will always find a pile-up of cats around.

World Wrestling Cats

If you like sports or just enjoy a good, cheesy drama show, you probably have heard of the world of wrestling. People usually have pretty strong opinions about it and there is always some controversy involved if you try to discuss it, but the truth is, it’s pretty fun!

Image Courtesy of Facebook/Katzenfan Seite

With that in mind, people decided to launch WWC—World Wrestling Cats! What’s better than the good old wrestling? Exactly the same thing, but with cats instead of humans! The internet would go crazy about that! These two are already training for their international debut.

X marks the spot

If you think about it, cats are pretty similar to us. They have complex personalities, are capable of logical thinking and even have different likes and dislikes. Some would say they’re actually better than us because of how cute they are, but that’s up for debate.

Image Courtesy of Twitter/@arbredebleu

When it comes to their likes and dislikes, they’re not at all subtle about their preferences. If they like something, they’ll love it with a passion and if they don’t like it, they’ll absolutely hate it! Apparently, both of these cats love this particular spot in the bed.

Brotherly love

Showing love to your siblings is a concept not many humans are familiar with, especially when we’re about the same age as them. It’s not that serious, honestly, we are just used to play and bicker with them, which doesn’t leave much space for cuddles.

Image Courtesy of Reddit/Ms_CIoverR

Cats don’t really care about that. If they’re living comfortably and are used to other cats, you can bet they’re going to do everything together, from eating to sleeping, even when things get a little bit suffocating like in the picture above.

The creation of cat

It doesn’t matter if you recognize it or not, art is all around us all the time plastered all over the subways, on the walls outside, or pouring from our radios and TVs and cellphones. Even animals can make art sometimes!

Image Courtesy of Reddit/yangsta05

Sure, they’re not very good at it, but who cares? They’re cute! And, if creating art without opposable thumbs end up being too much trouble, they certainly have no problem acting out their favorite masterpieces. These two here, for example, love Michelangelo.

And the winner is…

If there was a prize for the weirdest cat in the world, these two certainly would be on the top of the list. They’re probably pretty normal cats during the day, but when night comes around you can see their true nature. Who even sleeps like that?

Image Courtesy of Reddit/mmaireenehc

Cats do love to smell each other’s butts, but that’s just how they greet each other, not how they fall asleep! You don’t fall asleep while shaking someone else’s hand, do you? That’s why we’re so confused with what’s really going on here.

Location, location

There are two things cats absolutely love in this world: Cuddling with each other and annoying each other. When it comes to cat beds, both can be achieved at the same time. Sure, there might be enough beds for everyone, but where is the fun in that?

Image Courtesy of Reddit/Annrose18

The only bed these cats really like is the one in front of the window and neither of them will budge, so they share. Maybe they both enjoy the view; who could blame them? You wouldn’t want to wake up facing something boring every day now, would you?


If you are a kid of the 90’s and early 2000’s, you’re probably very familiar with Dragon Ball, the show about the adventures of Son Goku, his family, and friends fighting against dangers both from this world and many others!

Image Courtesy of Reddit/joblo14

These cats here are obviously super fans of this anime. They even spent a whole day trying to do the Fusion technique! Unfortunately for them, they fell asleep before achieving such task. The world would be doomed with their cuteness combined, that’s for sure!

Absolute unities

Unfortunately, cats aren’t really supposed to be chubby. The reason for that is because their joints are fragile, since they are built as nimble hunters in nature. If they do get a bit overweight, though, make sure to take a couple of cute pictures before putting them on a diet!

Image Courtesy of Instagram/laikafela_

These two here, for example, are two super chonky boys. Imagine hugging these absolute units—it would be like visiting paradise on earth; that’s for sure! Hopefully, they’ll go on a diet soon enough so they can live longer, healthier lives!

A mass of cats

As we all know, cats have some pretty big personalities. They always know exactly what they want, and you can bet they want it now! Also, they can be pretty jealous creatures when it comes to your love and affection.

Image Courtesy of Reddit/chi_6

When they like someone, though, they absolutely love them! It doesn’t matter if it is you or another cat. They’ll even let their friends sleep on top of them for a while, just like in the picture above. The white one was there first, but he didn’t mind the gray’s intrusion at all.

Ballet cats

There are plenty of kids out there, both male and female, who dream of nothing but to become a ballet dancer when they grow up. It takes years of practice and hard work to achieve that, though. So, if you love ballet, you’d better start young.

Image Courtesy of Twitter/@kaokazutatu80

Of course, this rule doesn’t really apply to cats. They’re naturally agile and graceful, after all. They can also do stunts us humans can only dream of. Dancing comes naturally to them, as we can see with the pair above practicing for their big presentation.
