The mysterious case of the snoring cat

I'm about to get all deep and meaningful on you, so look out:

My cat snores. He also meows in his sleep. (This picture is not him, but it might as well be - it could pass as him by anybody who knows him.)

Does anybody else find this as odd or hilarious as I do?

I'm sitting here studying and wondering what the strange soft grunting noise is, and then I worked out that I had heard it before. I found that it was coming from the cat, curled up in the corner fast asleep.

I wonder if he knows how funny I find this.

It has woken me up before, and then my husband woke up when I nearly fell out of the bed laughing at the snoring, meowing cat. Then the cat woke up and the fun was over.

Yes, he is overweight. No, I'm not a bad fur-parent - all the cats get the same measured amount as each other. I think he scavenges and gets fat off the neighbourhood mice. Perhaps this is what he dreams of. Food.

I think there's something in that for all of us, don't you? ;)

My dog used to do the exact same thing (except swap the meow for a 'woof'!).

He snored quite loudly and then would move his legs as if he were running and start barking in his sleep (though the barking was more under his breath rather than the usual loudness). It was really funny! I think he was dreaming that he was chasing a rabbit in a field or something!

i'd say try and put one of those snore-patches on his nose, and see what his reaction is :-P

I'm pretty sure that;s a picture of my cat, but we don't have a red carpet!

Thanks for the comments, guys.

The cutest thing is that I don't think he has any idea what he does while he sleeps, as when I wakes up after I have walked up to him, he gives me this look as if to say, "What are you looking at me like that for???"
