Why Do Cats Sleep in Unusual Places?! – Simon's Cat | LOGIC #5



Hallo, ich bin Simon. Willkommen bei Simons Katzenwissen. Wir werden heute von einer Katzenexpertin erfahren, warum sich Katzen so verhalten, wie sie es tun. Heute sehen wir uns die Lieblingsschlafplätze von Katzen an. Ich hatte bisher in meinem Leben sechs Katzen und ich bin immer wieder erstaunt, wie unterschiedlich Katzen sind, sogar was ihre bevorzugten Schlafplätze angeht. Meine zweite Katze Chloe liebte den Wäscheschrank und fand immer einen Weg hinein, um sich dann auf die weichen Handtücher zu legen. Sie liebte es. [Wo schlafen Katzen gerne?] Katzen schlafen und dösen über den ganzen Tag verteilt. Sie wollen an einem sicheren Ort schlafen, der möglichst hoch liegt. Außerdem lieben sie dunkle und warme Fleckchen. Es gibt zahlreiche Rückzugs- und Schlafplätze für Katzen, wie Katzenhöhlen, Heizungsliegen oder sogar so etwas einfachen wie einen Pappkarton mit einer gemütlichen Decke darin. Jetzt fragen Sie sich vielleicht, warum Ihre Katze einfach irgendwo auf dem Boden schläft, obwohl Sie dieses echt teure Katzenbett gekauft haben, doch wenn Sie den Warmwasserrohren in Ihrem Haus folgen, werden Sie vielleicht herausfinden, dass Ihre Katze genau darüber schläft und es schön warm hat. [Lassen Sie schlafende Katzen liegen] Ich weiß, dass Katzen echt süß sind, wenn Sie tief schlafen, aber bitte widerstehen Sie dem Drang, sie aufzuwecken. Katzen schlafen 16 Stunden und mehr am Tag; junge Katzen und ältere Katzen sogar noch länger. Vielleicht klaut Ihnen Ihre Katze den Sitzplatz, sobald Sie aufstehen. Das liegt daran, dass es dort schön warm ist, weil Sie gerade erst dort gesessen haben. Außerdem ist es ein erhöhter Platz und er riecht nach dem Besitzer. [Warum lieben Katzen Wäsche?] Wäsche ist immer ein bequemer Schlafplatz für Katzen. Manche Katzen bevorzugen Schmutzwäsche, weil sie vertraut riecht und den Duft des Besitzers an sich hat. Andere Katzen wiederum mögen lieber saubere Wäsche, weil sie frisch aus dem Trockner kommt und schön warm ist. Ein sicherer Schlafplatz. Egal ob Karton, Wäschestapel oder sogar ein Koffer, Katzen drehen sich auf ihrem Schlafplatz oft im Kreis, das ist ganz normal. Wir glauben, dass es sich dabei um Reste des Verhaltens afrikanischer Wildkatzen handelt, die ihren Schlafplatz häufig wechselten, um Parasitenbefall zu verhindern. [Katzen, die zusammen schlafen…] Viele Katzenbesitzer glauben, wenn ihre Katzen zusammen schlafen, müssen sie Freunde sein, aber das hängt sehr davon ab, auf welche Weise die Katzen zusammen schlafen. Wenn ihre Pfoten ineinandergreifen und sie sich vielleicht gegenseitig das Fell pflegen und sich aneinander kuscheln, dann kann man davon ausgehen, dass sie Freunde sind oder derselben sozialen Gruppe angehören. Wenn Sie sich ihre Katzen aber genau ansehen und dabei feststellen, dass sie nicht direkt aneinander liegen, vielleicht sogar zusammengekauert da liegen und Augenkontakt mit den anderen Katzen vermeiden, dann könnte es sein, dass sie sich gegenseitig lediglich tolerieren oder einfach nicht derselben sozialen Gruppe angehören, und stattdessen einfach ein gemütliches Plätzchen suchen. [Träumen Katzen?] Es wird vermutet, dass Katzen tatsächlich träumen, denn sie haben den sogenannten REM-Schlaf, der durch schnelle Augenbewegungen gekennzeichnet ist. Viele Katzenbesitzer glauben wahrscheinlich, dass ihre Katzen in ihren Träumen draußen Eichhörnchen jagen, wenn sie im Schlaf zucken und ihre Pfoten bewegen, aber zu bisher wissen wir nicht, wovon sie träumen. [Simons echte Katzen – Schlafplätze] Hugh bringt mich immer zum lachen, denn sein Lieblingsschlafplatz ist der große Kompostbehälter in meinem Garten, denn der bekommt am Nachmittag die ganze Sonne ab. Hugh legt sich dann gemütlich auf den Behälter und da er schwarzes Fell hat, wird ihm schön warm. Teddys bevorzugter Schlafplatz befindet sich am Ende des Gartens in einem alten Folientunnel, der mit Brennnesseln und Brombeersträuchern und anderen Pflanzen überwuchert ist. Jess schläft am liebsten genau neben meinem Kopfkissen. Ich muss ihr immer den Schlafplatz vorbereiten, indem ich meine Kissen nach oben ziehe. Meine Katze Maisy ist riesig und sie schläft am liebsten am Fußende meines Betts. Weil sie so groß ist, nimmt sie praktisch das ganze untere Bettende in Anspruch. Das ist das tolle an Katzen: Sie sind alle so verschieden. Meine Katzen haben alle ihre eigenen Lieblingsschlafplätze und Ihre sicher auch.

  1. What do you have to say about my cat ? He sleeps on the couch, furniture, washing machine (when it's off) and off course me !

  2. My cat likes the hat compartment in my very old highboy dresser. He stands up, opens the door, and jumps in. When I see that door half-open I know he's in there sleeping. It's very cozy and small and I have a couple folded up towels in there. The rest of the time he just likes to sleep on me or under the covers next to me if it's cold. We are best friends!

  3. My cat Ginger likes to sleep near me on the same bed, where he'll take the left or right side of me, or go to my mom's room to sleep on her leg rest. Either way, he's so big that we have to squeeze in for space. It's almost a given he will wake us up at 4 am for his breakfast.

  4. Our Lulu is like Maisie ..she takes over the bottom of the bed, halfway through the night she'll lay across us,towards morning she starts rubbing herself several times on our back, legs etc come sunrise she often paws our face and miaws loudly waking us up,she proceeds to lead us to her food bowl or the door but very rarely goes out.Thus we are tired out on waking to the alarm.. however she then goes on to curl up on the bed and sleep soundly to after 10am . Blimey O'Reilley whose got it right here?

  5. I know I am late, however: I do know a little about what cats are dreaming. Years ago I had a burmese that I took walking in the park together with my other cat. She met a dog for the very first time and retreated to my shoulder, hissing and spitting. In the following night I woke up by a deep growling from her (sleeping on my pillow), her back- and tail fur standing strait up. I had no doubts about what she was dreaming ?

  6. My cat likes to sleep Every where and anywhere(like on top of my loft or on top of my desk[which is the same height as my loft]). I think her fur and tubby ness makes everywere comfortable. Also she sometimes sleep in what looks like most uncomfortable poses she can get in.

  7. My cat is a rescue cat, and has a horrid fear of rainstorms. If there is even the slightest rumble of thunder, he's either under the kitchen table (we've actually installed a small cat nook made of a box and a blanket under there) or in my lap. And if it is raining at night, he is going to be somewhere on me, either curled up next to me, draped across (or between) my legs, or curled up on my pillow with his nose in my ear.

    He has a choice of several cat nooks in various places in the house. Some of them had to be firmly discouraged for safety reasons (such as under the sink, where various household cleaning substances are found) and in the cabinetry under the kitchen counter (wherein there are many metal pots), so we've had to install child-proofing on the kitchen cabinets. He also claimed the breadbasket as his, which was quite the problem when he first moved in, because he'd also chew through the plastic bag to get to the bread. That particular problem was solved once he realized he wasn't going to have to worry about his next meal anymore, but he still would evict the bread and claim 'his' breadbasket. To the point that we ultimately made another cat nook out of said breadbasket, lining it with a towel, and placing it on a middle shelf over by the back door. He's also learned how to open and close the breadbasket, which is always good for a chuckle.

    "Where's the cat?"

    "Did you check the breadbasket?"

    "What? No, the cat's not… oh wait… the little furry beast has gone and holed up in it and closed the door again…"

  8. My big fluff ball, Sophie, sleeps right beside my head. So I also have to make room for her. She is HUGE though so I end up in the middle of the bed while my partner is stuck against the wall

  9. When my cat is outside, he likes to sleep on the hay bales. When he's inside, he likes the back of the couch.

  10. Cats:- "When our paws twitch when we are sleeping, we arent dreaming of chasing squirrels silly – we are hunting herds of buffalo!"

  11. my first cat Juci liked to sleep on the freshly washed and hanged bedsheets and blankets as they dried on the sun. afterwards they would be dirty again because she walked over them with her dirty paws, and she would smell like lavender fabric softener. my second cat Berci was a right badass, his favourite spot was inside the doghouse (even though he had his own cathouse, and a den we made him out of a basket) from whence he would kick out my dog Potato (who was like a very naive teenage puppy at the time). during winter he allowed Potato to sleep inside with him, lol… and my current cat, Big C thinks its beneath her station to sleep with the dog (and she has extra long and fluffy winter coat which makes her like thrice her size during winter) so she sleeps atop the doghouse when the sun shines there, but otherwise she sleeps as far as she can from Potato, in the farthest part of the garden, in the toolshed, where she uses the cathouse originally made for Berci, which is on top of an old counter (that contains a lot of useless stuff we didn't throw out for whatever reason) I store in the toolshed. I love them so much. the pets not their houses cause those stink 😛

  12. My youngest cat, Sherbert, is more dog-like in his behaviors than cat-like. Example, he likes to sleep under the covers, between my legs.

  13. My eldest, a Bengal, sleeps on my hips since I sleep on my side. The middle, a barn cat, sleeps in the middle of the floor when it gets warm. Our newest addition, a TuxeTorti, sleeps either in a box with a towel in it or on top of the sofa right by the window, the only one that faces the setting sun

  14. My cat Lilly (who died at age 16 or so) used to sleep on my head, or across my neck. If you sat down she was in your lap and if she wanted attention and you didn't do it, she might climb you and might sit on your shoulders or something.  Simon's antics sometimes remind me very much of Lilly actually.   We've had many cats over the years, she was the only one who has wanted that much contact, which was particularly interesting as she was a feral cat rescue and while she was already grown, they did not know how old she was.   She lived with us for 15 years.

  15. Dogs end up with their wn random sleeping places or even areas where they hang out depending on the time of day.

  16. My current cat, Freya, used to sleep all the time on top of this cat tree my family got for her to scratch on. More recently though, she's moved her sleeping spot to on the back of the sofa where we usually sit. We think maybe she's gotten too old to jump all the way up to her old bed and that makes us sad :c

  17. Sam, I admire you so much, you are a beautiful person, because you look after your pretty cats. I have one cat and three dogs, and I love them so much. They are my happiness.

  18. My cat loves to sleep on the counter in my bathroom near his food bowl. There are no pipes, and the counter is made of some sort of hard, cold surface. Would this be normal?

  19. I love it it’s so nice how I see the picture of the tree and the cats

  20. when my dads cats were kittens, we would always find them sleeping in odd places as well, like behind the TV, in empty tissue boxes, under the beds, its just off, though, when the fireworks are out and there are thunderstorms, they are under the beds in fear.

  21. My Cat Likes To Sleep On Me Or At The End Of My Bed.
