Sleeping Makes People and Animals Weird and Funny

“What? I’m comfortable!”

We who love our pets are influenced by them in ways that are conscious and ways we can’t even imagine.

Consider these stories told by sleepwalkers:

“My girlfriend stopped me early one morning as I was heading out the door, car keys in one hand, my dog’s bed in the other, wearing just a t-shirt and underwear. Apparently I was on my way to CVS because our dog told me she needed some snacks.”

“You want to give me all the treats…”

Even our stuffed animal friends can insinuate themselves into our subconscious.

“I used to sleepwalk a lot when I was little and one night when I was 4, I went downstairs to the kitchen, got some wine glasses out, and poured ginger ale in each one. I took them to the living room where I had a very classy meeting with my stuffed animals around the coffee table.”

“Mine’s gone already.”

Of course, we all know how dignified dogs are when they’re sleeping.


Cats lose all their sense of poise when they’re dozing. We’re on to you, you little bastards.

    My cat is a cat so she sleeps 24 hours a day, often snores. But my favorite thing is when I wake her up after a long sleep. This happens a lot when I leave the house for an hour or two or come home early from work so she’s not expecting me. She acts just like a little kid who was just woken up, blinking a lot and drowsy and not quite as responsive as usual. She’s a lot like sleepy Calvin.

      That comic strip is hysterical.

      My dog is like your cat. He snoozes heavily when I’m gone, and makes a big show of stretching and yawning when I walk in the door. Lately he doesn’t come to greet me; he wants me to find him on the couch or in the bedroom or wherever. When I find him he’s shaking like crazy with excitement, and then we have some Pets and Scritches.™

        Awww, I also call them “Pets.” And when I want her to come up and snuggle with me, I say, “Come get some snuggs.” I think she thinks it’s demeaning because she’ll only snugg 50% of the time.

    What do you guys think animals dream about????

    • flanny says:

      I ask my cat every time she wakes up and SHE WILL NOT TELL ME. (I think she’s dreaming of mice.)

      I just assume he’s dreaming of chasing a squirrell or a small child. I believe he thinks they’re the same thing.
