8 Places Cats like to Sleep ...

By Alison

This could be a short blog – anywhere they shouldn’t. If you know anything about cats, then you will know that they do exactly what they want. That includes choosing a sleeping place. And since they spend much of the day snoozing, they like to find a variety of comfortable spots ..
