Why do cats sleep on paper?

Asked by angus (27points) November 8th, 2006
I've always wondered this; given the choice, every cat I've owned has chosen to lie down on a piece of paper. Is it something about the texture?

I think it's because you're usually trying to read something on the piece of paper, meaning you're not paying attention to the cat, which is obviously unacceptable.

I think they think they're gaurding something important. You never know, it might suddenly fly away.

most likely the warmth from cats would rather use it instead of there litter boxes

What do homless people sleep on paper ??? Ask a homless guy they might know

I think how it holds warmth. At one time, newspaper was used in walls as insulation.

Paper is a good insulator.

Also, cats like to sit in boxes and on squares :)
