When you are worrying about something a lot, you might find it difficult to fall asleep at night. You are not the only person to toss and turn in bed while you worry about school, work, or bills. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control believes that 50 to 70 million American adults have a sleeping disorder of some kind. Isn’t it sad to think that a lot of people are not getting a decent night’s rest? We do not know the statistics for animals. From the look of these photos, they find it much easier to get some shut-eye.
No One Wants To Do The Laundry
Laundry is far from the most interesting chore there is. There are times when we start to get drowsy as we put our clothes out to dry. It looks like this was also the case for the cat in the photo. She ended up falling asleep on the laundry rack, and we can’t help but vibe with that. It looks pretty darn comfy.
Sleeping Safe And Sound On Her Snout
We can’t get enough of how cute this is. The little piggy fell asleep as it was laying across the snout of her momma. The older pig looks like she does not have any problems dozing off despite this. The baby is a “mini me” of the mom, all the way down to those blonde eyelashes. They look like they are in heaven! Pigs seem to like eating and sleeping more than anything in the world, and we feel the exact same way.
Do Not Trust Him Behind The Wheel
The truth is that it is not that hard to fall asleep inside a car. This was also true for the dog in this photo. He was passed out with his head on the pedals behind the wheel. It is pretty unsafe, but it looks like this pooch is suffering from narcolepsy. There are two cups of joe in the center console, but they were not enough to keep him awake and alert. Hold on… do you see that green wire poking out of the dashboard? Maybe we are wrong. He must be a mechanic who fell asleep on the job! Naughty.
Dreaming Of Even More Food
Wouldn’t you love to be a puppy sleeping in a dish of food? That sounds like the dream! This little one must have been so contented that she passed out at mealtime. It might be time to get her a smaller dish since she could fit her entire body in this one. She will grow way too quickly if she does not control her portions. A dish this big could hold her weight in kibble. It is only natural for everyone to feel tired and sleepy after a huge meal. We sure hope the owners sort out this problem in the near future.
In The Middle Of A Shopping Trip
To be honest with you, we do not really know what is taking place here. The cat looks like she passed out in the laundry aisle at Target. Still, this does not explain how she even got there in the first place. Did she come with her human to run errands? If this is the case, she did not do a very good job of it. If not, she might be a stray that had too much catnip for her own good. Let us hope that she wakes up soon!
Cup Of Chipmunk To Start The Day
In this photo, we have a nice cup of coffee. It is the best thing if you want to wake up a person who had been tossing and turning all night. Wait one second. It is not coffee but a cute lil’ chipmunk! The critter made her way into the cup of a camper and passed out. Can you believe just how adorable this photo is? He was curled up in the cup and seemed to have no idea what it was really for. Baby, that is not a bed!
Not The Nose Job We Had In Mind
You only need to take one glance at this to see how comfy the dog looks. She has a warm bed and seems so tranquil that she does not notice her head is hanging off. We want to direct your attention to the way her nose is pressed on the floor. This likely means that she did not notice she was dozing off! We can’t imagine sleeping like this, but this only goes to show us that we are not built like these cute animals.
Conked Out After A Trip To The Vet
This dog was not eager to go to the vet one more time. He wanted to get out of the visit, so he decided to play dead. Let us just say that he was not thrilled with the idea of a vet poking and prodding at him with cold hands. The corgi took things so seriously that he fell asleep while playing dead. We wonder if it made things easier for his owners to carry him into the car. Even the best plans fail every now and then.
What A Sloth Looks Like While Sleeping
It is not a secret that sloths move very slowly even when they are awake. Check out this photo of a sleeping one! The sloth conked out as he was walking from one point to another. He needed to recharge a little to keep going, and we can totally relate to that. We have a fun fact about these animals for you. Even though they might not look the part, they share a lot of DNA with armadillos. Archaeologists have also discovered the remains of extinct sloths that indicate they used to be as big as elephants. Whoa!
Sleepy After Being Sent To The Corner
This animal could blend into its surroundings perfectly. Orange might not be our favorite color, but it is still impressive that this cat could camouflage himself indoors. She had been doing such a great job of it that she fell asleep. If that was not the case, perhaps her owner sent her to the corner for a little “time out.” We all know how naughty cats can be! At any rate, this does not look like that big of a punishment since she looks relaxed in this photo. Hopefully, she will not feel a crick in the neck later in the day.
The Book Was Too Dull For Him
Well, that book must have been super dull and boring. It failed to keep the attention of this ferret, after all. It was actually so bad that it put him to sleep! Who would have thought that ferrets are bookworms? Maybe not the entire species, but the smart kids like a good book from time to time. This book clearly did not make the cut for this little fellow. If you have any recommendations, you might want to give him some. He is looking for something that will at least keep him awake, if not totally engrossed in the story.
Keeping An Eye On The Plants
This is not something that you see every single day. This hound dog fell asleep as he was stretched out between pots. We have two theories about what took place here. Perhaps he used to do this when he was much smaller. These days, he can no longer fit in a single pot and has to use two of them at nap time. The other theory goes that he is aware that things grow in these pots and decided to keep watch and see the process with his own two eyes. We just hope that he did not end up squashing the flowers!
Straddling Is The Name Of The Game
From the look of things, we are guessing that this dog got a little too cozy while doing a Netflix binge and fell asleep. This happens even to the best of us, so we will not make fun of him for it. But what makes this truly unique is that he was bridging the gap between the table and the sofa by having his head on the table and his body on the couch. Are you observant? If so, perhaps you saw that there is an inhaler right beside his face. His owner should have known better than to keep such a thing near their fur baby!
When You Fall Asleep Exhausted
You can’t get any more bare-bones about napping than this. This bunny rabbit simply laid down on the floor and zonked out. We love that she had her paws high in the air as well! The adorable creature did not need a bed, a blanket, or even some grass. You can even call her a professional sleeper. Did you know that your spine benefits from sleeping on hard surfaces? Perhaps this rabbit knew all about that and decided to do the best thing for her body. It might be a good idea to do the same thing that she did.
Bird Watching Was Not Very Fun
There is an old saying about how curiosity killed the cat. Luckily, it simply put this feline to sleep. The photo shows that she dozed off as she looked out the window. We wonder if she was planning to bird watch but failed to find anything interesting out there. The owner of the cat placed her by the window, which honestly looks like a great place for a nap. Doesn’t she look like she is ready for a massage? We wonder if this was the case. Maybe she was waiting for her weekly cat massage when this was shot.
This Looks Like A Prickly Position
As nocturnal animals, porcupines tend to be more active at nighttime. They try to catch some Z’s in the day. This little fellow fell asleep while he was stretching out on a tree trunk in the air. How cute is that? Even though it might sound like a weird sleeping spot to you, these animals like to sleep in trees. This sounds ideal on hot summer days! He chose the best spot since it is shaded. In reality, this is actually a very smart plan as the altitude makes him safe from predators such as bears, coyotes, and wolves. Even though the porcupine is much smaller for them, this animal makes up for its size with smarts.
The King Of The Jungle Is Fast Asleep
No one will ever be eager to go up against the king of the jungle. The lion must have known this, which explains why he decided to doze off in a position like this one. He does not seem concerned with being regal and majestic in his sleep. With his legs in the air, he was splayed out on his back. He sure looks super relaxed. In fact, we would not at all be surprised if we see drool falling out from his mouth. That would be embarrassing, but we doubt that anyone would be brave enough to tease him for it.
Falling Asleep On Top Of Ice
Can you believe that this squirrel fell asleep in a bowl of ice? Humans will probably shudder at the thought of doing the same thing, but this little fellow looks like he is in a state of total bliss. This was shot at Oklahoma during a heat wave. A local woman was worried about the squirrels suffering from the intense heat and left out cups and bowls full of ice to help them manage. It looks like her plan worked to great success! This critter was so happy with what she did that he ended up passing out while cooling off. That does not sound like a bad way to beat the heat whatsoever.
When You Are Sleeping On The Job
We wonder how comfortable it is to fall asleep on the back of a sheep. This sheepdog would know how to answer that. Based on this photo, she looks more than happy to take a nap when she should have been herding the fluffy creatures. In essence, she fell asleep on the job! Hopefully, her boss did not catch her in the act. Otherwise, she might be punished for it. But let us face it, this is something that has happened even to the best of us. Next time, she should grab a cup of coffee before going to work.
Rock A Bye Raccoon
The sleeping beauty in this photo does not take the cake. This raccoon might just be the cutest napper we have ever seen. Our favorite part is how he is sticking his pink tongue out in this photo, but this is not the only good thing about it. For one thing, he is wearing a T-shirt and resting on a bed. Aside from that, we love the pillowcase! This raccoon must be an according based on the fact that he was sleeping right in front of a scale model. We are sure that this is not the easiest profession, especially not for a raccoon.
Resting Over A Watermelon
We have so many questions about this photo. Perhaps these cats travelled all the way to Japan to nap. One of them is lying on a wooden table, while another is dozing off above a watermelon. This does not look particularly comfortable to us, but he is doing just fine on top of it. Who knows? Maybe he has the right idea. When you can’t sleep, it is worth a shot. We can’t guarantee that it will work, but it looks like a promising idea since this cat does not seem bothered by this at all. We will just have to take his word for it.
This Does Not Look Comfy In The Slightest
Well, you do not see this every day. The giraffe might not look very comfortable, but we are sure that it is not easy to look for a comfy sleeping position with such a long neck. This must be the reason these animals do not get enough sleep. Did you know that they need only half an hour of sleep per day? Their necks make them very vulnerable to predators, so they need to be on their guard for the vast majority of the day. There are adult giraffes who can even fall asleep standing up! It is both sad and impressive.
The Only Dog That Hates Walks
In general, dogs like walks. We do not know about you, but taking the leash out is enough to get our pets excited! It looks like this particular pooch does not have the same attitude when it comes to walks. As a matter of fact, it is so boring for him that he commonly passes out in the middle of the activity. It looks like this woman is used to it. This was not the first time that this has happened to her! While the exercise is good for both of them, she might want to look for a more active walking partner.
This Actually Makes A Ton Of Sense
You are wrong if you think that this hedgehog was not comfy here. To be fair, she is sleeping on a bed of sharp cacti. But have you forgotten that she is also prickly in her own right? As a matter of fact, her quills look a lot like the pricks on the succulents. In fact, it makes a lot of sense that she would rather sleep on this and not a proper bed. No one wants to prick themselves on both her and the plant! Clever.
The Comfiest And Coziest Sleeping Spot
It looks like this bird has been taking a nape with a jacket and a sweater on. This is not the case. This photo was shared by a Reddit user who said, “This is Ender, my conure.” She added that the bird likes to sleep on top of her chest! No, the bird is not the one dressed in clothes as he was just lying on top of his owner. At any rate, he looks way comfier than the others. If you are curious about the birds, you should know that they are a “group of small to medium-sized parrots… found in the Western Hemisphere.”
Movies Can Help You Fall Asleep
We are sure that you have dozed off in the middle of a film at least once or twice in your life. It is far too easy to fall asleep when you are on the couch with a movie playing on your TV. It looks like this cat got it all wrong. He is not chilling while watching Netflix as he fell asleep on the DVD rack. It is not going to be comfy for any of us, but it does not matter to him. It looks like comfort is a very different thing to him.
She Does Not Need A Pillow
How cute is this?! This pooch is so tiny that she has no problems fitting into a tennis shoe. She looks like she is cozy there since she has all the shoulder and neck support that she needs. We are sure that this was a big deal to her. But there is another theory that can explain what is going on in this photo. Maybe the odor in the shoe knocked her out! This doesn’t seem likely as it looks new, but you never know.
Not A Care In The World
Aww, will you look at this photo of a mama otter with her baby? She is swimming, but the pup is just along for the ride. He is on her belly and does not have to do anything, so he fell asleep. This is not an uncommon scene since mothers often have to carry their kids when they are still this small. We are sure that we would also fall asleep in this situation. This otter is sure lucky that he has such a strong mom!
It Is A Matter Of Balance
Is this even possible? We would not have thought so, but we have been proven wrong by this photo. It is possible that there is a brace that we can’t see, but we would rather think otherwise. The cat can be seen straddling the counters with her belly in mid-air. She does not fall down for some reason even though we do not think that her feet and head are strong enough to hold up her body. Perhaps she is simply doing planks with her eyes closed! If that is the case, she is definitely our idol for core workouts.
Hanging Out In The Parking Lot
It looks like this fox is far from his natural habitat. For some reason, he found himself in the parking lot of a mall. He does not seem scared at all since he dozed off on top of the windshield of a car. We can’t help but wonder how he landed in this area. Maybe he had to pick up a couple of things from the store. How do you think the owner of the car reacted when he saw this surprise waiting for him once he got back? We might never know the answer to that question, but it is a lot of fun to speculate!
Yet Another Curious Little Critter
The cute little squirrel in this photo has been taking a look at the camera when he dozed off in the middle of the inspection. What makes it even funnier is that he passed out right above the camera. He must have been super tired to do such a thing. If it was not that, maybe he wanted to try his paw at taking photos. He no longer wants to be the subject of photos but the person behind the camera! We are sure that he would make a big splash in the industry since no one else is doing the same thing.
It Is Best To Hide In Plain Sight
Check out this cat, who had just found the ideal spot for the best nap ever. She realized that her white fur makes her blend into the counter and sink. When her owners were looking for her, they did not notice her taking a nap down there! However, things are going to go wrong for her if someone uses the sink. After all, it is not a secret that cats are not particularly fond of water. We do not even want to imagine what it is going to be like when she wakes up like that. It sounds like an absolute nightmare that might result in a lot of scratches. We would rather not be around for that, thank you very much.
The Most Unexpected Discovery Ever
While we do not know much about the photo below, we can tell that the sea lion was too tired to keep swimming by then. He was able to get into the boat and went on to fall asleep on one of the benches. It does not look uncomfortable for him, but we would love to know how the folks who found him reacted! Did they let the creature nap for as long as he needed? Or did they kick him off the boat right away? For his own sake, we sure hope that it was the former and not the latter. He is too cute to be kicked out!
This Vineyard Kitty Is Slacking Off
Did you know that a lot of vineyard owners like to keep cats on their properties? When interviewed by Wine Business, one such owner explained, “I was having a problem with rodents in my winery barn” until he took in a couple of cats from the shelter. He went on, “Cats are a great natural organic rodent control! One of them has become less shy and sometimes follows winery visitors from the tasting room to the parking lot. They seem to enjoy our winery cat.” We are glad to hear that this is the case, but we doubt that this cat was the best employee. After all, he was caught asleep on the job in this photo!
Unexpected Sleeping Buddies In The Wild
You do not have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that they are good friends. After all, there is no other way to explain how an elephant ended up falling asleep on top of an emu. The trunk is even curled up in her feathers! It looks like the bird is serving as the lookout as her buddy takes a nap. We are sure that she will wake him from his slumber at the first sign of danger. It does not look like she is worried that he will squish her. We all know that trust is the basis of all great friendships. Cheers to these two!
The Tissues Must Be Very Soft
Maybe this tiny kitty is suffering from a cold but does not want to get up to grab a tissue every few minutes. She decided that it is far more convenient to simply rest on the box itself! If this is not the case, maybe this curious cat stumbled upon the tissue box while playing in the bathroom. She must have decided that it was the best place for a nap and went for it. We are keeping our fingers crossed that the humans did not have any animal allergies. She is not the only one in the house who uses Kleenex!
Too Daring For His Own Good
It looks like this fox is a fan of living on the edge. He was not happy to sleep in a “normal” or “safe” spot. He wanted a little thrill and made his way to the balcony of a house. The height is nothing to him, as you can see that he is just draping his tail far too close to the ledge. When the homeowners spotted him out there, they took this photo before anything else. We hope that they got him down there with no hassle! A little excitement is fun every now and then, but all it takes is a little jolt to fall from there.
A Bed Made Out Of Rubber
Move along, folks. There is nothing to see here! This just another horse falling asleep on top of a pile of tires. Yes, it does not look very comfortable. He is crammed down there with his legs stuck out in odd angles. On top of that, he is pressing his snout into the gravel. We do not know much about horse sleeping patterns and positions, but this looks unnatural. No one wants to pay for chiropractic fees, so someone needs to get him out of there and onto a proper bed as soon as possible.
Falling Asleep Up Above The World So High
At a glance, it is far too easy to assume that something dangerous is taking place here. It is not every single day that you find a big bear peacefully sleeping above a telephone pole. You might be surprised to hear that these creatures can balance in tall trees and like to sleep in high branches. It is done to avoid predators while they catch some Z’s. We can tell that he had no idea that it was not a tree branch but a telephone pole. In the end, what matters is that he is comfy. Still, this is too dangerous for our taste.
His Flexibility Is Putting Us To Shame
We wonder how many yoga classes this cat has taken in his life! Only the most flexible among us can sleep like this. We can feel a pain in our back just from looking at it. This feline is so relaxed that he does not even notice that he is slipping out from the purple blanket. We hope that he does not fall right onto his head since that does not sound like a nice way to wake up. Can someone please change his position?
The Flowerbox Is Not A Flowerbed
Do not worry, you are not the only one at a loss for words here. How did the raccoon fall asleep in the flowerbox in the first place? We do not know, but she might have fallen backward into it and decided that it was the right spot for a nap. When she wakes up, she will have to get out of there and deal with cricks. This does not look like the best position for any animal to sleep in. Most of the time, these creatures sleep in hollow trees or dens. Yes, this one is certainly an exception to the rule.
A Serving Of Kitten Coming Right Up
The cat in the photo passed out in a bowl. But how on earth did she even get there? Perhaps her owner poured her in there to see how she would react. This is one of the best things about being a fur parent. To their surprise and delight, the feline did not mind sleeping like this. We all know that cats are second to none when it comes to sleeping anytime and anywhere. She must have thought that it was comfier than curling up into a tight ball. This is a peaceful photo that we just cannot get enough of. We love her!
She Is In A Tight Spot
It would seem like this kitten dozed off in a sandal. She must have been trying to crawl into it but found herself stuck halfway through it. In the end, she decided that it was too much of a struggle to get out of it. She will deal with it once she is done with her nap. How adorable is that? If we were the owners, we would not disturb this adorable sleeping creature. Who knows? Perhaps the feline felt safe and secure in this spot. We all know that there is nothing better than to fall asleep with the weight of a blanket over you.
Please Help Him When You Can
How on earth did he even fell asleep like that? If we can guess, he had been lying on top of the wheel when he slipped into the space between the wall and the wheel. We can’t help but crack a small smile at the thought of him trying to squirm out of there. No one was around to document that, but we are not disappointed by this funny photo either. When times are tough, the best thing to do is to nap it out and wait. It will allow your brain to recharge and make you more prepared to take on the issue at hand!
He Is Not Scared Of Heights
Maybe it is actually a lot easier to fall asleep on top of a pole than any of us ever thought. This raccoon was able to climb up there with little effort! Isn’t it impressive to see how he manages to stay balanced at the top? Even though his body is too big for the pole, it does not get in the way of his balancing act. We can’t even wrap our heads around the fact that he did it while asleep. Hopefully, he is a light sleeper. After all, it is going to be way too easy to fall down if he is startled awake.
This Is Our Favorite Kind Of Wine
Isn’t this the cutest thing that you have ever seen? This little kitty dozed off in a wine glass and does not look bothered in the slightest. She must have been playing with her owners, who wanted to see how well she would hold up in tight places. They put her in the wine glass and saw her fall asleep right before their eyes. We are sure that they could not stop squealing as this took place! If you want a scientific explanation, this can perhaps be chalked down to being reminded of what it was like in the womb.
Comfort Does Not Matter To Him
Don’t you just love seeing cats hanging out by the window to take in the sunlight? This cat must have been getting a little too much of it since he looks very comfortable in such a weird position. He passed out on the guard rails, but we are mystified by the way he balances his whole body there. It does not look like it offers a lot of support, right? Still, let us not forget that cats are agile and flexible by nature. It is amazing to see it in action. We would kill to have the same reflexes that these adorable creatures do!
He Is There To Protect The Food
Have you ever seen anything cuter than this? This little fellow fell asleep on top of the food in the food dish. This is too precious! We can just tell that he was eating as much as he could but could no longer move once he was done with his meal. He only closed his eyes for a second but ended up conking out! This is too much food for a single puppy, so we bet that this one belongs to his mom. At any rate, we can’t help but grin at the thought of this baby eating too much food for his own good.
The First Burger Should Go To Him
The owners of the cat in this photo had been looking for him for several days when this was taken. They knew that he would turn up sooner or later, but they were still worried if he was all right. One day, they were having a cookout when they saw that their beloved pet was actually spending his time in the grill! Maybe he just wanted to be the first in line for the barbecue that he liked so much. Well, who can blame him? We love nothing more than delicious grilled food in the middle of summer! He had the right idea.
There Is A Cat In My Boot!
This little kitty should get an award for the greatest hiding spot! Her humans were surprised to find someone fast asleep in the right boot. However, we highly doubt that they kicked her out of there. How can you even do such a thing to such a precious creature? If we were in their shoes, we would just buy a new pair of boots. We would feel super heartless if we had to pick her up and wake her up from the nap.
If The Dog Fits
The dog in this photo thought that the guitar case was a dog bed with a weird shape. It did not matter to him in the end. He was just in need of a place to sleep in, and this did the job. How adorable is he all curled up in there? The neck was like a cradle for his head as well. We would love to have been the ones to walk in on this scene. We are sure that the dog also liked the fact that it smelled just like his human.
Just A Little Pup In The Big City
This pooch had a long day out and about, so she could not wait to get home and catch some Z’s. While dogs like going out on walks, they can get tiring too. We love how peaceful she looks after she fell asleep right on the windowsill! She might not have known it, but this made for such a great photo moment. She must be dreaming of the next time that she could go out and explore the city some more. If not, maybe she was thinking of the cuddles and pats that she would get from the strangers she is going to meet.
Your Very Own Pocket Kitten
Wouldn’t you love to have a cute little kitty in your shirt pocket? We can’t even tell you just how envious we are of this guy! He knew just how much cats like to squeeze themselves into the smallest spaces and realized that he could carry her around with him like this. We wonder how much it takes before the cat wakes up from her slumber. She looks totally zoned out! The two of them should enjoy it while she is still small enough to do this. When you next get a kitten, you might want to try this out for yourself.
Helping You Read In His Sleep
His owner had been reading a book when this puppy asleep. He did this in the best position to hold the book open! Isn’t that too adorable for words? His human must have been in the middle of telling him a bedtime story when he fell asleep. He can now read the book in peace and without having to hold it up all by himself. We love seeing this photo because it shows us just how enriching a relationship like this one can be for both parties. It does not look like the pup is liable to wake up when he turns the page.
You Look Like This When Asleep Too
The cat in the photo must have been getting cuddles while sitting up. She had been having such a fun and relaxing time that she fell asleep like that! We are sure that gravity has not completely stopped working here since you can see her mouth dropping open in the middle of his slumber. This is the reason we ended up with such a funny facial expression. Humans have a tendency to fall asleep like that too. There is no need to be shy. We have all been in the same spot at least once in the past, right?
Trying To Get You To Stay
You are looking at a cat who crawled her way into the purse of her human in the dead of the night. She must have known that the owner would not need it until the morning. However, her plan is a little slyer than that. She did not want to be left alone once more, so this was her attempt at making her human stay at home with her. It can be adorable when animals are clingy, especially since cats are known to be a little on the cold side. Honestly, her scheme is probably going to work on us if we were her owners.
He Is Getting The Baby Treatment
For a lot of fur parents, their dogs are just like human children. The pooch below is not an exception to the rule! They put him in a baby’s car seat, and he promptly fell asleep as soon as they hit the road. We are sure that he was lulled to sleep by the sunlight and the calm inside the car. The seat must have helped him feel comfortable as well. Do you think that the owners had the heart to wake him up once they reached their destination? We doubt it. If they were headed to the vet, perhaps he decided to keep his eyes shut in the hopes of getting out of that situation.
