Cats are always happy when they sleep on your lap rather than on your head while you sleep. The cats can easily curl up and go to sleep there. Second, from the comfort of that pillow, the cat is in a perfect position to be stroked and petted. Cats have a natural desire for us to do that for them.
Cats sleep for up to 16 hours a day and they love comfortable place for this purpose.
One sleepy stray felt so comfortable in the lap of a stranger napping outside. When Ali Safa woke up from his nap out in the terrace, he was surprised to find a cute but little dirty white kitten curled up on his stomach. “I was taking a nap on the balcony of our house, and, like two hours later, I woke up and I found her just napping on my stomach,” the Canberra, Australia, resident explained to The Dodo. “At first, I thought she was a rat.”
Safa captured the beautiful moments steadily in his camera and later he posted it to Reddit. “While she was sleeping, I kept hearing that ‘purr’ sound cats make,” he recalled, describing the kitten’s restful murmur as one of the cutest sounds he’d ever heard.
When the kitty finally awoke, she seemed very hungry and asked for some food. Safa didn’t have any cat food in the house, so he shared some leftover chicken wings, which the hungry kitty cleaned up in no time. Ali thought the kitten belonged to the neighborhood’s colony of stray cats. He gave the kitten a warm bath and took his new little friend to the vet for checkup. When doctors couldn’t find a microchip, Safa thought of adopting the cat. He named it Angel.
“There really aren’t any house rules against pets in my family and she looked like she can use some family, so I was like, ‘Screw it, I’m keeping her,’” Safa told. He would later bought actual cat food and toys to help his new pet feel comfortable at home. Today, Ali and Angel who has since received a clean bill of veterinary health are still best friends and steal time for nap.
“All I can say is that she is the most fun cat I have ever gotten to play with,” Safa told. “All she does is just roam around me all the day wanting pets or to play.”
