Hunter....The Coon Who Sleeps On His back!!!
My Cat Hunter....The Coon Who Sleeps On His back!!!
Hi, this is my boy Hunter. I'm dying to find out if anyone has a Coon who's predominant sleeping position is on his back.
I have never owned nor seen any cat who prefers to sleep in this position, and because he's a Coon...he hogs almost half the length of the couch and doesn't leave a lot of room for anyone else to get comfortable!!!
comments:Maine Coon sleeping on his back
My 11 year old Coonie Raffi always sleeps on his back with his paws tucked in. He has been doing this since he was a kitten but I didn’t k is why at first because I never had a Coonie before choiceMy boy
My boy cat is a Maine Coon. He pulls the "dead cat" routine while he sleeps. Apparently that's a "Maine Coon thing"....Our Zelda sleeps on her back
Zelda, our Maine coon mix, loves to sleep on her back.
My daughter heard her screaming as a four-week kitten in a place by our gutter during very heavy rains. We were going to give her to our shelter because I wasn’t familiar with bottle-feeding and caring for a young kitten.
However, when I took her to the shelter, they said they would euthanize her due to a respiratory infection because they were scared it would spread among their other very young kittens.
I couldn’t foster her because I didn’t have their training. However, I asked if I could get her well by taking her to my vet that they would take her at 8 weeks for adoption.
I took her to my vet who helped me get her well and guided me on what to do and how (and when) to introduce her to my older cat. Zelda never made it back to the shelter. :-)
Today, our maine coon mix displays all the characteristics of the breed. Now, I know why maine coon cats are so beloved. Zelda is such a wonderful cat.Mine only sleeps on his back
My Maine Coon is almost 2 and he has always slept on his back. I don't think it is all that normal. When I had to board him once the vet techs commented that they kept checking to see if he was alive, it was not normal.Leo
Leo was a stray who showed up at our house late one night about 6 months ago. He is about a year old now and weighs 15 pounds!
I have had many cats in my life but never one who liked to sleep on it's back. Leo will stretch out on his back with his front legs stretched way out in front of him.
He loves his belly rubbed too and I swear he answers when we talk to him. He is the best cat and is pretty low key and friendly most of the time. But sometimes he likes to get ahold of my arm and naw on it like a dog with a bone.Mine
Obi , our rescue, always sleeps on his back. 1 yr old and 20 lbs. Hogs the bed when he sleeps with us. The most adorable cat we've ever owned.MY MAINE COON SLEEPS ON HER BACK TOO
I adopted Bella as a kitten about a year ago not realizing she was a Maine Coon at that time. YES she sleeps on her back all the time.
She'll even sleep dangling off the bed couch or cat tree. She also pushes her paws against me when she sleeps. They definitely have their own personality.Maine Coons
I have a main coon and he sleeps on his back like he is dead.My favorite sleeping position
I like to sleep with my paws up like a dying cockroach. I was brought home from the
SPCA in Austin with my sister Thelma. We look nothing alike as I am part Maine Coon and my sister is a tuxedo--maybe different fathers.My favorite sleeping position

We adopted a maincoon mix from our local shelter. He ALLLLLWAYS sleeps on his back. He is the sweetest big 29 pound boy.
When we got him, he was 2 and weighed barely 8 lbs. Someone threw him in a US Mailbox. He is such a good boy. He also has the loudest mouth omg. Such a talker.Fraser my Maine Coon mix cat
We rescued Fraser from our local animal shelter. He is a Maine coon mix and has all the behaviors and characteristics of a Maine coon. Yes, he loves to sleep or nap on his back!
It is so cute! I've had cats all my life and never have had a cat who enjoys sleeping on their back. We love him to pieces and I look forward to finding a full blooded Maine coon someday soon.
Fraser loves to play catch! He has a favorite mouse that he loves to play with or a small ball he plays catch with as well. But he does seem to hide his favorite mouse toys and we have yet to find them so we have to buy more.
We will run across them someday and will probably be a mound of them!Cats on their backs
I wish I could add a pic of my Zena who frequently sleeps on her back. I got a ripper video of her yesterday, tail swishing away at nothing. Looks exactly like your boy.Always on her back
Our cat, Fluffy, is 3. We got her a year ago. Ever since we've had her, she has slept only on her back. I don't know if I've ever seen her on her tummy.
She just plops in the middle of the floor. We also got a kitten at the same time, and I never see her on her back. Both are Maine Coon.My Maine coon spirit lives sleeping on her back
My 9 year Maine coon. Spirit loves laying on her backBack sleeping cat
I have a Maine coon cat who sleep on his back half the time. The rest of the time he sleeps in corners with his head propped again against the wall...this is my first time being around a cat 24/7....love Maine coon CAT....Our Maine Coon Loves Sleeping on his back
Yes! Our Maine Coon, Max, loves sleeping on his back. He stretches out on the floor, on the couch, or wherever looks like a good napping place to him.
I was gojng to post a picture of him dojnv that, but I don't see any way to do that. Max is 9 years, and we only rescued him 3 months ago, but he's assimilated very well and has stolen our hearts.❤️Rhett
My Coon loves to sleep on my lap on his back. He snores too..Sebastian always on his back
We have a Maine Coon cat who loves to sleep on his back. He has always shivered when he does this. The vet says its normal and he is very healthy at a sturdy 30lbs. He is the most gentle and sweet cat I have ever had.Main Coon who sleeps on his back
