We wonder you have noticed this or not but most people, animals and birds look adorable when they sleep. There is something about the helpless way they are sprawled in the throes of slumber that makes this so much fun to see. When it comes to animals in sleeping poses, they look even cuter than they normally do.
There is something to be said for the helpless and vulnerable way they look as they curl up to go to sleep. These pictures will make you view animals in a totally different manner.
Actually, here are some really cute things that animals may get up to when they are sleeping:
Have a nightmare:
You may not believe this, but sometimes when the little animals like puppies and kittens sleep, they seem to have nightmares. They look so bewildered and confused. They mewl and flip around as they battle imaginary rivals while still asleep.
Loll around in the most unusual pose:
When an animal is asleep, especially one as flexible as a cat, you will find that they do get into the most awkward pose when they fall asleep. Sometimes when you come across an animal in such poses, you wonder how they got into it in the first place and also how they are going to get out of it. But no matter what, it is cute to see.
Have an eye or ear open:
Many animals have an instinct or two left from their time in the wild. This means they are wary and at attention for attacks even as they sleep. So often you will see some animal having a snooze even as one eye is half open or ears perked in waiting for a rival to attack. This look too looks really adorable especially when the animal in question is cute and cuddly one.
Look as if they have collapsed where they fell:
Like little babies, animals too have the tendency to fall asleep wherever they land. So do not be too surprised if you find your pet collapsed in the most unlikely places, sleeping in a really unusual pose. It is par for the course for this to happen and really cute to look at too.
Fight an imaginary battle with some rival:
Sometimes the animal in question would be fighting an imaginary rival even as they sleep. This is not like the twitching of a nightmare, but rather a fully-fledged battle they rage on their rival even as they are fast sleep. If you don’t find that cute, then we don’t know what you will!
Squirm around and look restless:
Like their human friends, animals too can be restless in their slumber. They can toss and turn and even let out a snore or two when enjoying their sleep. It may not be as cute when they are sleeping in your bed, but when you think about it, it is a really cute visual and one that will make you grin.
Cuddling up to mama:
Sometimes animals also tend to cuddle up to their mommy in their slumber just like human babies do. It is really adorable and heartwarming to see the little one squirm and seek the warmth of mamma like a heat seeking missile. You will be touched enough to have tears in your eyes but also find it cute enough to have a grin on your lips.
Apart from the above mentioned instances, you will also find that animals fall asleep in wells, teacups, jugs, pots, bassinets, baskets and many more funny places that can really make a cute picture.
