Sleeping Styles Posted by Wally & Ernie Jun 132016 Two distinctly different sleeping styles… Ernie is more introverted…he likes to curl up into a ball… while Wally, the extrovert, lets it all hang out. How ’bout you? Do you have an introverted or extroverted sleeping style?

But, now that I think of it, I do believe that they all enjoy showing off that extroverted style the most. I guess letting it all hang out is pretty fun and refreshing, isn’t it, Wally? The Florida Furkids says: June 13, 2016 at 8:47 AM The Girlz almost always curl up. Raz is mostly like Wally but also curls up a lot. He’s an equal opportunity sleeper. The Florida Furkids Laila and Minchie says: June 13, 2016 at 9:09 AM We are more introverted in the winter and extroverted in the summer. Eastside Cats says: June 13, 2016 at 9:25 AM Wally, I would have a hard time in keeping my mits off of your belleh! dma says: June 13, 2016 at 9:36 AM diego-san is our extroverted sleeping style boy. thompson and theo like to curl up. personality wise however theo is the most extroverted of the group. he greets people at the door. Toby & Leia says: June 13, 2016 at 9:38 AM I, Leia, usually sleep curled up. When Toby was younger he was more of the let it all out type. Sometimes Cats Herd You says: June 13, 2016 at 10:02 AM Ashton is an introverted sleeper (no surprise there). Newton likes to let it all hang out. And Pierre varies by day. Pooh and Her Pooch says: June 13, 2016 at 10:03 AM Pooh prefers the introverted way of sleeping. That picture is just so cute. Hugs and nose kisses Sammy says: June 13, 2016 at 10:57 AM I’m a mixed bag when I sleep…….I start out in a ball……then as I get deeper into sleep I stretch out into a “hanging out” posture…….I like to keep people guessing. Love this photo of you boys! Hugs, Sammy Emma and Buster says: June 13, 2016 at 11:12 AM Kitties, the two of us sleep the same way. Emma curls up while Buster stretches out. Brian says: June 13, 2016 at 11:34 AM Looks like Happyverts to me! Marg says: June 13, 2016 at 11:43 AM WE have a little of each kind of sleeping around here. They both work very nicely. Looks like you two sure look happy to us. Random Felines says: June 13, 2016 at 11:43 AM we tend to curl up….but those kitten sprawl out like they have melted Fisher and Jobi says: June 13, 2016 at 12:12 PM We get all sorts of sleeping positions with our three cats, but the one peculiar thing is that they each pick a spot away from another cat. As cat mom, after reading your post I am wondering if other cats just want to be alone when they sleep. Tamago says: June 13, 2016 at 12:22 PM My boys sleep in either way – kind of mixed. But when Goro goes introverted, he becomes one big ball of fur 🙂 Lola and Lexy says: June 13, 2016 at 1:00 PM We go from one extreme to the other. Sometimes we like to stretch out and be comfy, and sometimes we like to curl into a ball. Depends on our mood. caren gittleman says: June 13, 2016 at 1:03 PM Cute! It depends on my mood and the weather. I am often an extrovert cat, but for regular naps, I can be an introvert. Love, Cody Loulou says: June 13, 2016 at 1:17 PM Wow, I have all of those and more, I guess. Sometimes it’s introverted as in GO AWAY, I AM CURLED INTO A BALL SO YOU WILL NOT WAKE ME UP AGAIN TO RUB MY IRRESISTALBE TUMMY. And then sometimes it is extroverted, as in “Hey, big boy, come on over here and rub my tummy as long as you like.” We kitties want it all. Summer says: June 13, 2016 at 1:36 PM Funny thing is, I sleep curled up and Boodie likes to sleep spread out (especially in the summer!) – and she’s the introvert and I’m the extrovert! Andrea and the Celestial Kitties says: June 13, 2016 at 2:05 PM That is so cute and funny! The Swiss Cats says: June 13, 2016 at 3:30 PM Pixie sleeps curled up, but for Zorro, it’s hard to explain : curled, semi-curled, dangling, upside down, stretched, … it depends of what (or who) he’s sleeping on (or in) ! Purrs Deziz World says: June 13, 2016 at 3:50 PM Aaaaaaw Wally we think you both look so adorable. Luv ya’ Dezi and Raena Anne says: June 13, 2016 at 3:51 PM As others have said, it could be that temperature come into play. They are in the same room, obviously but if one is more overweight, it could change how hot he feels. Jan K says: June 13, 2016 at 4:00 PM I think Samantha has a split personality, I’ve seen her lying both ways! I think she does tend towards the introverted though, I see her curled up more often than sprawled out. da tabbies o trout towne says: June 13, 2016 at 4:07 PM doodz….we like ta spy on de nayborz all de time sew we sleep covert ~~~~~ ☺☺☺♥♥♥ The Poupounette Gang says: June 13, 2016 at 4:46 PM It sorts of depends on the sleeping location over here. Purrs, The Chans Lone Star Cats says: June 13, 2016 at 4:49 PM I mix it up. Katie Isabella says: June 13, 2016 at 5:07 PM I let cllllll hang out most times. xox Connie says: June 13, 2016 at 5:21 PM LOL@ extrovert.. that is perfect Toby says: June 13, 2016 at 5:45 PM I’m definitely the extrovert of the family! Simon and BobbieSue are introverts – they never let it all hang out!! In fact, they never let anything hang out!! Annie says: June 13, 2016 at 6:39 PM The only time I sleep extrovert style is at night, a few hours after going to bed on the lady’s bed. Pierrot on the other hand is extroverted and then some! I love this picture. Wally, you are so darn cute. Ernie, you are too but I can see Wally’s face better in this picture. Melissa & Mudpie says: June 13, 2016 at 6:49 PM Mudpie is definitely an introvert. I love how you boys are laying *next to* the cat bed LOL William's Kith & Kin says: June 13, 2016 at 8:07 PM We think it’s a color thing–that’s how we sleep! Cathy Keisha says: June 13, 2016 at 9:21 PM It depends on the weather and whether I’m hot or cold. Usually I curl up but recently I’ve been laying on my side with my paws way stretched out. Ellen Pilch says: June 13, 2016 at 9:42 PM Such cuties! We have a mix of both around here. Canadian Cats says: June 13, 2016 at 9:55 PM We take turns being open and closed. It all depends how e= we are feeling that particular moment. Shoko The daily Pip says: June 13, 2016 at 9:56 PM We are all a bunch of introverts in this house. Just Ducky says: June 13, 2016 at 10:06 PM Introvert, so was Derby. Three Chatty Cats says: June 13, 2016 at 10:18 PM Cute picture, boys. Dexter and Sophie are extroverts, but Olive is an introvert sleeper. Raven says: June 13, 2016 at 11:20 PM I think I’m mostly and introvert but I occasionally stretch out and snooze. Hannah and Lucy says: June 14, 2016 at 8:04 AM Hannah always sleeps with Mum but Lucy prefers to sleep on her own. Kitties Blue says: June 14, 2016 at 9:06 AM This is terrific. Wally’s style is like Calista Jo’s except she turns her upper body even more. You boys are always so cute when your are snoozing. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo Nellie says: June 14, 2016 at 9:12 PM Hmm, mes a most extroverted cat, but mes sleeps like a introvert! Kisses Nellie LP says: June 14, 2016 at 11:19 PM We like your analogy! Levon lets it all hang out like you do Wally! Esme is more like you when she sleeps Ernie 🙂 the critters in the cottage xo meowmeowmans says: June 14, 2016 at 11:25 PM Gracie likes to sleep next to Mom. Zoe is more of a Daddy’s girl. 🙂 MrJackFreckles/Pipo & Minko says: June 15, 2016 at 1:41 AM We just sleep in whichevfur way we feel comfy! You two sure do look comfy and cozy:) PS: We are now here: http://pipoandminkoandmrjackfreckles.blogspot.com/ (We had to change our blog to make us have a real name instead of all those silly numbers.) Rosa @ Cat Lady Confidential says: June 15, 2016 at 11:35 AM My cat is more of an introvert like Ernie. He likes to curl up into a ball 🙂 Kelsey says: June 15, 2016 at 8:14 PM I could rub that orange tummy. Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
