We all know that our kitties can sometimes act very strange, they are not like this all the time, but sometimes when caught on camera they seem to be in the weirdest of positions.
But what is it that makes them want to lie upside down? Apparently if they specifically move into that position while awake and in your presence it’s a show of trust or an invitation to play.
If they’re sleeping like that while you are not around, it proves that they feel safe, and it’s for comfort and temperature regulation to help them keep cool. They’re maximizing their body surface area exposed to the air, and exposing the least well-insulated part of their body, which of course is their belly!
Learning all this gave me the idea to put together this great collection of cat pictures that I think you’ll love. Our kitties upside down and by all accounts they love it!
So check out these 21 cats who love being upside down and feel free to leave a comment below.
