Cats can be quite lazy.
I know we already know this and this statement does not apply to every cat breed but it does apply to many cats. Cats are after all not like dogs and they do like napping much more than going on walks. However, they don’t usually take a nap on their expensive comfortable bed. They usually choose the weirdest place to sleep and I have never understood why. Some people theorize it is because they want to sleep with their back to the wall or something solid.
I suppose it is because that is the only way they feel safe and they will usually sleep in such a way so they can see what is happening in front of them as to keep an eye on their surroundings. Although sometimes they will sleep with their back to you and that usually means that they trust you implicitly and know that you will not hurt them. But I don’t have an answer to why a cat would sleep on a banister or between couch cushions. Some things are best left as mysteries.
Scroll below to take a look at the weirdest places cats like to sleep on.
#1 I wouldn’t turn on the sink if I was this person or their eyes might not be safe.

#3 When you lose the match so you decide to not play anymore.
#4 Cats always love to sleep in shoes if they can fit in one.
#5 When you get tired of trying to find the right lipstick shade for your fur.
#6 This is a great way to drum up business for a coffee place. A free cat with every drink.

#8 Does this cat not know gravity? Or is she exempt from it?
#9 Who hasn’t fallen asleep while reading books?
#10 This particular plant needs plenty of sunlight but no water at all.
I know that some of these places look quite in the open and since cats don’t have a camouflage ability, it is usually quite easy to spot them but that doesn’t mean they don’t try to hide. According to experts, cats like to sleep in places where no one would look for them. It is just another way they try to protect themself from danger even if there is none around them. It is basically in their genetic code to always be wary of everything and everyone even if your cat has never been outside.
#11 Some plants are just not meant to thrive especially if you have a cat.
#12 Cats always leave their fur on clean clothes and there is nothing we can do to stop it.
#13 Where is the rest of the cat?
#14 This place sure looks cozy.
#15 Every cat has a box that they love to nap in.
#16 I have to admit that this is a gorgeous kitty.
#17 I mean bathrooms are quite cold so that is why cats love them.
#18 Why wear slippers when you can sleep on them?
#19 When your kitty falls asleep trying to get into the house.
#20 I don’t know this specific place but I know that this is a beautiful cat.
#21 Even though it is so apparent it still took me a second to focus on the kitty.
