Places for happy snoozing
A HAPPY relaxed cat will go and find his own favourite sleeping spots. However, if you’ve just adopted a kitty, and he’s shy, you can help create a few snuggle spots that will help your pet feel secure when he’s asleep.
> A cardboard box is a cat’s castle. Take one that’s slightly bigger than your pet, and turn it on to its side. Leave the top and one side flap closed. Your kitty will crawl inside, and may pull the second flap closed for complete privacy. When your pet is inside, consider him to have put up the Do Not Disturb sign.
> Leave the laundry stack in a quiet corner. Any heap of clothes means your pet can bury himself in soft goodness. Super-shy cats may go totally camo and cover themselves with your tee or towel. If your pet chooses the dirty laundry pile, he’ll get used to your scent too, which may help bonding.
> Leave a cupboard door open, preferably one with a shelf. Cats like to sleep in spaces where their enemies can’t get to them, which is why strays will sleep on roofs and the tops of doors. If you have a shelf in your wardrobe, your pet may want to adopt this as a safe snooze spot. Be helpful and arrange for easy access and exit. If you have a bookcase, that can be a nice alternative.
