The dog-cat-dog sandwich is ideal for keeping a cat warm

Dog-cat-dog sandwich

My cat does the same but he has my legs on either side of him. He loves the position as he receives the maximum amount of warmth from me. It usually happens when I am in bed on the computer. He conveniently moves off my lap so I can use the computer and moves down my legs into the sandwich position.


The behavior is based on the domestic cat’s love of a warm ambient temperature, a trait inherited from the domestic cat’s wild cat ancestor. There is also the emotional warmth that such a sleeping position provides both for the cat and the dogs. It is another example of interspecies relationships benefiting both species.

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
