No Parachute required.

I sleep often on the chair in the hallway. I do sit there wide-awake too, mainly when a feeder is trying to use it to sit and put on their shoes. For me, it's a very comfy chair. It's close to the bicycles, my jungle gym, and close to the front door, source of entry for feeders; i.e. all-around good spot. But in a deep sleep, I sleep like this:



So, this is to say, (and this only applies when "they" are away), I often tuck my left leg improbably back and around and under - as so:



The first time the feders saw this, they thought I had fallen onto the chair from a great height, that it was an emergency and so and they almost called the emergency services...



Of Course, now they know that I will awake, stretch, and like a butterfly, emerge from my apparent crushed state in all my, well...they have the words for it, ask them!



So now they refer to that posture of mine as the "Ernest forgot his parachute" position. I don't really know what to say about that. But, since you may well ask, I say, it's wishful thinking on their part, as i'm very much up and running.
I did ask Fritz, but ,well,he's seen it all before and so he's not too easily impressed with my antics.



Please let us know if you nap in a most peculiar posture too..I'll let Fritz know!

I nap very oddly as well often in ways that the Woman has to nudge me to see if I'm alive or not. I tuck my paws, spread out the stumps, and also sleep very deeply on my back. I like your position very much!

That is a very interesting sleeping position. I think you must be very limber. I do not sleep in any unique positions, I don't think.

That is a pretty funny way to sit, Ernesto. I really like to chill out on my back, actually. Sometimes I just roll from side to side on my back. konk out for a while...
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

You two are great friends.
We do sleep sort of funny. Sometimes we like to nap all squished and curled up and other times all stretched out.

Happy Day

It's always good to give your feeders a heart attack or two. We sleep in odd positions, and in odd places. But then, we're odd...
