It seems to be common knowledge that when cats aren’t taking a nap, they’re usually hatching a cunning plan to take over the world! However, the one activity they seem to love more than anything in the world is spending hours soaking up the sun.
Cats are said to be desert creatures that originally came from the Middle East, and because of this, they have a particularly high tolerance to heat. They also have a much higher body temperature than us humans, and so basking in the sun is vital for them to be able to conserve energy.
Below you can find some of the most amusing and hilarious ways in which cats try to get their fix of sunlight. We bet you can’t keep scrolling past them all without them putting a smile on your face!
