What Do Pets Know About Being Comfortable That We Don’t?

It’s no secret that Eko is a master of finding the most comfortable spot in the room.

One of Eko’s favorite maneuvers is to split the couch cushions into a cozy pillow top bed.

He is also a master of adding a blanket to his bedding to achieve maximum comfort 

Normally I am envious of Eko’s luxurious accommodations, he almost always seems to find the perfect spot to snooze.  However, there are other times when I just can’t conceive why Eko would ever choose the spots he does.

No pillows, no blankets, feet hanging off the side – but for some reason Eko will sometimes sleep like this on the stairs for a couple hours

Not only that, but some nights Eko will skip his bed all together.  The other night he pulled his covers off the bed and decided to camp out in the corner

I know Eko is not the only one who operates on both ends of the comfy-spectrum.  I have seen plenty of pets walk past comfortable spots in favor of contorting themselves in an uncomfortable alternative.  Which then raises the question, what do they know that we don’t?  I’m not eager to sleep on the floor next to Eko, so does anyone have any guesses as to why some pets do this?

Sometimes I think she’s just too lazy to move but she needs to stretch her neck a bit after sleeping curled up, so the head inevitably lands on the floor hanging off the bed. Of course, she always chooses a spot where she can supervise me from.

As I read this post I noticed that Tala had migrated from her blanket on the sofa to the cashmere one we left out last night by accident. Clearly a discerning hound….
