Every single cat owner out there knows that cats love sleeping on humans. We, of course, think that this is absolutely adorable, but there’s more to this phenomenon that just feline cuteness.

CATS ADORE US

Most people think that humans are the ones who adore cats and not the other way around. Even though there’s a lot of truth to that, cats still love us very much and their way of showing affection includes sleeping on top of us all the time. Just think about it – you’re away from home most of the day and your fluffball is all alone during that time. When you come home, it’s only natural that they want to spend some quality time with you and their definition of quality time is sleeping.

WE ARE WARM

Cats really like warm places. What they love more than anything is sleeping in warm places. You are warm, therefore, your cat will perch themselves right on top of you whenever they have the chance. It’s really that simple.

CATS ARE COMFORT-SEEKING CREATURES

You have surely noticed by now that cats can sleep literally anywhere but just because they can take a nap on the floor doesn’t mean that they will. Well, at least not when you are around. Yes, you are soft and cozy and cats love you for being so comfortable.

CATS FEEL SAFE WHEN WE ARE AROUND

When they are looking for a place to sleep, cats have to make sure that their resting spot is safe enough for them to doze off for a few hours. And let’s face it – there is not a safer place in your home than on top of you. They know that they are loved and that you would never allow anything bad to happen to them.
