In my family, our cats sleep in various places and positions during the day. Gaither, our tuxedo kitten, sleeps on this beanbag chair, on one or another of the cat towers throughout the house, or on the back of our leather recliner sofa with Jaspurr during the day. At night, he may be curled up in a corner of the hallway, or on my son's bed with some of the other mail cats. My Jennifur sleeps on my bed with me, on a window-mounted padded bed in our bedroom, or on a footstool below that one. Some nights she does keep me awake with her wandering. Other nights she sleeps quietly at the foot of the bed, or on the pillow next to me.
