Sleeping Position Number 1

Today we begin a series in which we will examine the many different and varied positions Kitty can assume while sleeping.

Up first is the Croissant position:


Note the resemblance to the french pastry:


The Croissant position is a tightly wrapped package that is assumed due to arctic temperatures of the house, ie, 70 degrees F.


The body is curved into a tight comma, the appendages and tail are tucked close to the body, and the delicate nose is hidden beneath a leg. This position has prevented many a terrible case of frostbite.  Poor Kitty….

Up Next:  the Relaxed Croissant position.

Stay tuned.



Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    I have a feeling this is more of a relaxed croissant position, but I just had to show you my Dixie Rose. Every time I see a photo of your kitty, I think of her.

    And what a perfect description of this position. Now, I want a croissant…

    I love it! I have four cats and have never lived without one, so I have seen all the various sleeping positions. Cats are so fun!
