21 Sleepy Kittens That Will Melt Your Heart


Kittens spend a lot of time sleeping, but they also spend a lot of time running amuck and destroying your house. When your kitten finally does settle in for a nap it’s a nice chance to pick things up and then marvel over how stinking cute they look catching some ZZZ’s.

Cats normally sleep 16 hours a day, but kittens and senior cats can sleep for as much as 18 hours a day. Kittens prefer to sleep snuggled up to you, another animal or even a warm blanket as they are used to napping cuddled up with their brothers and sisters. In order to find this same warmth and comfort they will go to all kinds of lengths, and since they are so tiny they can fit just about anywhere, from shoes to pockets!

The sleepy kittens that made this list found the perfect spot to fall asleep and are now breaking the Internet with their adorableness.
