Yeah, what Zephyr does is exactly like the second picture. I think it's adorable when he sleeps that way.

Oh yes, it's adorable when they sleep like that!

But what I mean is with both paws, and pressing with paw pads on the forehead...

Then there's the paws pressing hard on the ears, but that's only when I sing to them. (just kidding)

Midnight, the wild cat, just does the one paw thing from time to time. Usually it's when he gets tired of me asking him where he was all night.

Cats have an unconscious 'drawing in" physical movement when they are asleep or in twilight sleep; I don't know how many times I have witnessed it, but it is unique to cats. Yes, sometimes one of the will cover their eyes with their paws if I turn on a light, or draw in their forepaws if I touch them, but the 'drawing in' movement is a kind of muscle flexing during sleep, like a stretch, but only in toward the center of the body instead of away from the center of the body.

Additionally, all cats like to have their forehead lightly stroked or petted which I think is a leftover from when they were kittens and mom cat licked their head while they were all nursing. My Timmy Tiger is addicted to having his forehead stroked while he is falling asleep and will bug the crap out of me if I stop too soon and make me start over with petting him. It is also a great way to calming down a cat who is upset if they will allow you to touch them; and most of mine will, no matter what.

I knew a cat that did that when you called him fat (he was like 22 lbs). He'd lay down and put his paws on his head. You could almost hear the "ah come on guys, I'm not fat"
