JAPAN — Meet Tetsuro, the unique Japanese cat who has mastered the art of sleeping like a human. While most cats curl up when they sleep, Tetsuro stretches out on his back just like some people do after a long night out. His owner has captured his adorable way of sleeping in a series of photos and videos that have gone viral.
The photos show Tetsuro, sleeping on his back in many different locations from his bed, to the floor and even an office chair. Studies refer to this way of sleeping as the “soldier” position and say that it stretches out your vertebrae and places less pressure on your spine.
Studies also reveal that there is a correlation between one’s sleeping position and personality and that humans who sleep like this are “well-adjusted [and] know what their goals are in life.” It looks like Tetsuro has it all figured out. Since the footage of Tetsuro has turned up online, he has become an internet sensation. Follow Tetsuro and his sleep habit here.
