Question Does your kitty prefer sleeping on the back?

My Metoo sleeps on her back all the time. I think I see her tummy more often than her face I never had a cat acting like her before, so just wondering if it's kinda common?

PS: Maybe I should make a pillow for her



Is that a... "air pillow" she is holding?



Even when she is napping on my laps she prefers this pose



Metoo was in the middle of playing while the "sudden sleep sydrom" kicked in



Again, she was playing with my shoe lace, and the next time I checked, she was soundly asleep

Oh my gosh, those pics are so cute!! My girls have never slept that way. Margaux occasionally rolls over on her back and stays like that for a couple of minutes, head looking in all directions, front paws bent over like in the 2nd picture of Metoo. MowMow looks so dainty with her (his?) paws together like that.

The stray does sleep on his back on my deck, in positions that look absolutely impossible. I'll have to try to get a picture.

Abby always sleeps on her back, with her four paws stuck up in the air. She looks so adorable and it always brings a smile to my face to see her sleeping like that. I've heard it's a bit of a Ragdoll trait, although no doubt many other cats like to sleep that way. Here are a few pics:

Relaxing with Muffs (who rarely sleeps on her back):

Archie and winston do this all the time. Little dude is learning to do it rather quickly. I hear its also common in maine coons, so that explains Winston. The other two...i got nothin :p

So cute! It seems like alot of long haired cats do it? My long haired dogs sleep belly up but I have only ever seen Muffin do it once and the others never.

I wish my cats did this! It's sooo cute. Metoo is beyond adorable. Banjo will roll over on his back and look at me upside-down, but he never ralls asleep like that.

OMG - so adorable. My one cat will lie on his back for a belly rub but he doesn't usually sleep that way.
