I’ve already mentioned some of the twisted (literally) sleeping positions of our animals. However, when comparing them to us humans, I only looked at the species factor and never considered the age factor in terms of how twisted they can be. When you think about it, the age factor is very important. Remember when your young child or someone else’s would fall asleep in the car? They would look like they were being choked by the seatbelt, but they always survived with nary a crick in their neck. Meanwhile, as parents, we’d be constantly checking to see if they were still breathing, if their skin was turning blue and occasionally, we’d re-adjust their heads to a “normal” comfortable position, only to have them flop back to the original, death-and-crick-defying one!
Meanwhile, we just look at our animals funky sleeping positions and laugh–or take pictures. So, here is Chloe, our 4-year-old female cat:
And here is our now 5 1/2 month-old Skye dog:
And, finally, our 9 year-old dog, Nala:
