Random question for cat peopleWhy is my cat sleeping in his food?
By which I mean, he is sleeping with his body curled up next to his food bowl and his head actually resting in the bowl is if his food was a pillow (I have tried to take a picture of this but he always somehow knows what I'm up to and runs off before I can get a clear shot). For anyone who's thinking "ew" I will point out that he gets dry food, so it's not as bad as it could be but still...why? He's been doing this for a few weeks now and I don't get it. Does anyone else's cat do this?

dunno, but, hee! it sounds awfully cute, if uncomfortable.

My SO has started to refer to him as a "vagrant", particularly when he turns his head, nibbles a little food, then goes back to sleep.
I just don't get it because it's cold in the kitchen and usually he's a little heat-seeking missile.

their brains are the size of a walnut, she said, affectionately.

who knows. maybe it makes him feel secur or something.

there was a really cute picture of a kitten asleep with its face in a bowl of kibble floating around at some point. so, i think your guy is not alone in this.

mine used to do this weird ass thing where he laid on his back with the water dish at his head, and, from that position, played with tipping the dish until it tilted over and spilled water all over the place. it looked like he was trying to wear it as a hat.

"it's a cat thing, we wouldn't understand."
