9 Cute Ways Your Cat Will Celebrate National Lazy Day

There are many cute days dedicated to our feline friends: Cat World Domination Day, Hug Your Cat Day, and, of course, Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day. However, Fluffy’s favorite unofficial holiday may very well be one that isn’t specifically just for to her. August 10th is National Lazy Day! In this article, a Cameron Park, CA vet offers a few tips on how your kitty will celebrate … or not.


Kitties are very, very serious about their beauty sleep. Fluffy spends at least 14 hours a day snoozing, on average, but can actually sleep up to 20 hours a day. It takes serious dedication (but very little effort) to keep up with 45 daily naps!


No proper lazy day is complete without a yummy meal. Your furry buddy will likely make several stops at her food bowl as she moves from spot to spot. Offer her something special, like a can of tuna in water.


Do you sometimes find your kitty snoozing on your books? This may be Fluffy’s way of trying to absorb knowledge … without trying too hard.

Lap Time

One of Fluffy’s most important jobs is proving her humans with snuggles. Settling in with your feline buddy is a great way for your drowsy pet to relax at the end of a long day of doing nothing!


Many folks like to pamper themselves a bit on lazy days. Fluffy will take some time to clean herself … before going back to sleep.

Fur Distribution

Kitties take their ‘furring’ duties quite seriously. Your feline pal will at least somewhat try to make sure that she is leaving the proper amounts of hair on your clothes and furniture.

Sleeping Positions

Cats can fall asleep in some very odd positions. Fluffy may very well doze off in configurations that resemble knots or mosquito flight patterns.


Our feline companions often really enjoy sleeping in sunbeams. Put a bed—or better yet, an empty box—in a sunny spot. Your sleepy furball will probably immediately settle in!


Fluffy likes to keep a close eye on her humans. You may very well notice your cute pet carefully observing you … from the comfort of her favorite lounging spot.
