If there's one thing cats are good at, it's getting comfortable. Check out all the great places they've found to relax in our u local slideshow.

One of mine likes to relax in my sock drawer. She then slowly periscopes her head up. It's pretty hysterical to watch!
Turn off the lights, and they think you can't see IR and are up your Washington,DC.
This is your cat on catnip. Any questions?
My sock drawer is not open to the public. It's by invitation only.
Cute kitties! It’s funny how kitty and pup pics can take the edge off of a bad news week.
My (at least nine year old) feral decided to relocate indoors. The dogs don’t like her and the feeling is mutual so I keep them separated by doing a “time share”. She ends up sleeping in some of the craziest places.
I will admit she is quite amusing. Her latest antic is to race around the room at high speed...like a Nascar driver in the final laps. Then...all of a sudden she flops down on her back and lays there all spread out. The first time she did it, it scared me. I was afraid she had given herself a heart attack. But it just seems to be what she is doing right now. Not being a cat person per se..I don’t have a clue what the heck it’s all about.
The time I have spent with her in her outdoor days..she has always been very sedate and dignified. Her new kittenish ways are very cute.
Mine like to do the 3 AM Thunder Paws race. Cats aren’t meant to be understood, just worshiped.
Aww! Can’t have too many cute kitty pix.
Turn the lights out, and they think they own the world. Weirds 'em out a bit when you can see as well in the dark as they do and play a round of slap-paws with 'em.
My boy Canoe - named after the boyfriend of Haley Mills in the original That Darn Cat. I don’t have the pictures, but he sleeps anywhere and everywhere.
O.K....as long as it is “normal” cat behavior. :)
I haven’t started worshipping her...yet. I just obey her whims since I have wanted her to come inside for YEARS so I could protect her!
I should say that is him in the picture above. He’s a good Blue Point boy - most of the time.
Her latest antic is to race around the room at high speed.”
I’ve had a number of cats over the years and none did this until my current one. She flies through the room, leaps high enough to careen off the back of an upholstered chair and then continues to race back into another part of the house. It is just too weird. I also have to keep the bathroom doors closed because she has taught herself to turn the faucets on. Rather disconcerting when I forget and wake up during the night to the sound of running water.
Would love to know what is going on in her mind - or maybe not...
Mine react the same way when they’re sleeping on top of me and I need to get up.
I have had many dogs thru the years that were scary smart. Outside of a strong instinct to survive, I have never really considered a cat’s intelligence.
But I’m learning. No doubt that they are pretty darn intelligent. When she wants to go outside, which she sometimes does, she starts jumping up to reach the doorknob.
It cracks me up!
Berdie, this nice girl kitty trusts you. Maybe, in the past, there was someone she trusted as much as she seems to trust you. Sometimes people and animals get lost.
I am glad she decided to move in with you. Just so you know, I have two dogs and six cats. Each is different in its own way.
Loved it! Thank you very much.
Ceiling cat approves.
You’re very welcome.
HappyCat be with you.
This thread gets better and better!
S&A, thanks so much for the kitty pings. With the way things have been going lately, we really need these heavy doses of cuteness and delight.
This is Boo. Boo Radley.
Typical cat behavior. A lot of them seem to like to just take off going like a bat out of he** for no apparent reason and then they just stop. Yours probably does it outside also you just never caught her/him at it before.
Patch sleeping in a canning jar flat (she's the mother of the two kittens above):
"I iz sleepin, go wai!"
You’re very welcome. I know I jones if I don’t get my kitteh fix.
I would be surprised if she had ever had a prior home. When she showed up here she was a pretty young and...barefoot and pregnant. I was able to round them all up and get them all fixed. That was nine years ago. Sadly, her babies were not nearly as cagey as she..and one by one...well you know.
I always made sure she had a heated bed in the winter and ice cubes in her water in the summer and was well fed. But as far as letting me really pet her..no way! I guess that’s why it’s so surprising that she is such an attention hog now.
I’ve always had a pack of inside dogs but currently only have one ancient Lab. I guess maybe she figured she could take him down with one paw behind her back and decided to move inside. In any case, she is quite amusing.
This is my baby.
She usually sleeps on me!
She only has 1/2 a tail, and is a "talker."
What a sweetie! I love black cats.
I love her to pieces!
I like black cats too.
They are the least likely to be adopted
from a shelter.
That’s really sad, I think.
Black cats are elegant!
