Ask Dr Jo: What does my cat’s sleeping position mean?

Apr 02, 2019

Cats are well known for their love of sleep. Your cat may look like they don’t have a care in the world but their sleeping positions can also tell us how they feel.

Your cat can choose to sleep anywhere: your bed, the couch, or even in their own cat bed. So why do they choose a cardboard box or the play tunnel? None of those tiny spaces seem particularly comfortable, but cats always have a reason.

For this episode, we asked animal behaviourist Dr. Jo Righetti to help you understand your cat’s sleeping behaviours and how you can help create a better snooze spot.
