How a Sleeping Cat Can Tell You the Temperature

The colder the day, the rounder the cat: Cats sleep in one of two basic positions — upright (think the New York Public library lions) or on their sides. How curled a cat is when sleeping on her side will depend on how hot or cold the animal is. The more tightly curled a cat is, the colder the air temperature. Curling into a tight ball helps to conserve body heat. When cats stretch out, they expose their bellies, allowing heat to escape and helping to cool them.
