Defensive Sleeping | Why Cats Sleep Curled Up

Cats sleep curled up in a ball to keep warm and protect themselves.
Dear Thomasina...
Why do cats sleep curled up in a ball? Isn't that uncomfortable?
Concerned Cat Mom

Hi Concerned!
Don't worry. Your cat's fine sleeping curled up in a ball. And when she starts to feel uncomfortable, she can always stretch out!

I lived outside for a long time before I moved in here, so I guess I'm a defensive sleeper. I feel warm and safe sleeping curled up in a ball with my very fluffy tail covering my eyes. Believe it or not, my favorite place to sleep is a round sink. It's just the right shape and size.

“For, though the room was silent, the silence of half a hundred cats is a peculiar thing, like fifty individual silences all piled one on top of another.”
