The art of sleeping in a box

This  is a  How-to with lots of pictures to  make it easy.  

Start  with simply sleeping on your back…. or on your side.

Consider  using the top flap of the box as a pillow.

If you are longhaired, use the benefit of your  coat and tail.

Remember that you and your box must nearly  become one.

Use your imagination: try an S-like  position.

or an inverted C-like position...

or even an L-like one.

If you totally trust your humans, relax your  back legs to the maximum.

Sometimes O-like positions do not fit the box  well, but you can always experiment.

If the box is rather small, try sticking your  paws & tail out of it...

or stretch just one paw out, like this (back  paw).

or like this (front paw).

Invite your friend to join you.

and enjoy it.

Your humans may wonder how you can sleep like  that.

ignore them and enjoy..

Perhaps they will not even notice  you.

To avoid unwanted attention, choose a box that  matches your fur color.

or you can trying hide in  an absolutely unexpected box.

This position is for experienced yoga  cats.

as well as this one.

Even small boxes will do in a  pinch.

You can  use any box-like structure you can find to get some  practice.

Just  remember to be creative!

There are  two means of refuge from the miseries of life
