Speaking of sleeping dogs, they sleep a lot. About half of any given day. And cats – cats need even more sleep and often nap away the better part of 20 hours. That leaves just 4 hours for mischief and mayhem. Dogs and cats sleep so much and while watching them sleep is often adorable, the folks over at SleepAdvisor.org have put together this infographic to help pet lovers learn what their pets’ sleeping positions might mean. Enjoy!
While cats who roll over don’t necessarily expect (or want) a belly rub, a dog showing his belly is most likely expressing total trust and will probably welcome some affection . . . unless he’s sound asleep. You never want to startle a sleeping dog – hence the old saying, let sleeping dogs lie.
