Larenti has some of the weirdest sleeping habits I’ve seen in a cat. Sure, he sleeps on his back from time to time, but so do Kako and Vazra. Lots of cats do that, which makes it anything but unusual.
I’m talking about positions that don’t even look comfortable, let alone restful, positions that seem accidental rather than intentional. You might remember seeing one such pose last November while he was still living outside.
I thought at the time that he looked as though he was taking a bath and fell asleep before he finished. Now I know that really happens. Like this:
I’ve seen him do that regularly all about the house. It starts innocently enough with normal feline hygienics, but somewhere in the middle of the process he grows tired and simply goes to sleep. Without lying down or changing position.
I can’t claim this Buddha Belly demonstration resulted from the same mid-bath unconsciousness, yet I do know he wound up propped against the bed rolled forward such that he had to hold himself up with his front paws—while he slept!
All I know is that this cat is a true weirdo. He certainly came to live in the right house…
