So Felony fights sleeping. He'll be kicked out on his chair or on the floor, and slowly his head will start to drop over to the side. Then he'll shake his head, jump around, lay back down with legs all kicked out, and his head will slowly start to fall over again. He repeats this process over and over. I think it's hilarious and it reminds me so much of my little cousins who will run around like monsters just to stay awake. Does any one else's precious baby pull this kind of stunt?

It may sound funny, but I almost never see my guys asleep.  If I come home in the middle of the day and enter the house very quietly, I might catch them napping, but for the most part when we are home, they are awake.  They do spend a lot of time relaxing, either stretched out on a rug or sitting side by side in the litter box in the hen position.

My Mabel does this all the time.   Sometimes shes all stretched out like felony and her head goes to the side and sometimes she likes to sit kind of tucked up like a ball of fluff and her head goes forward (a bit like my mum's when she's nodding off) until her little sleepy nose touches the floor, then she quickly sits herself back up and checks that no one has seen her.  Then it slowly start nodding again, over and over.  we can't help but laugh out loud sometimes, she looks so sweet.

Booboo seems to dream a lot and her lips look as those she's muttering x

Soph is always relaxing but i have NEVER caught her sleeping. NEVER. I think it would be too cute. On the weekends I tend to stay up past my usually 11:30-midnight, I can tell she's ready for bed because she will start hopping on me on the couch or thumping from her condo, then flop over as if to say "It's time! It's time! Hellllooooo?!?!? BED!!!"

i think it depends on the bunny... we never saw my first two bunnies sleep. but all the rest of my bunnies would nap as they got older. all three of my kids are under 3, but they a ll takebunny naps daily. i love watching them list as they try not to fall asleep.

Speaking of "like a three year old".... Sophie is definitely my mother's "grandbunny". She waits until i am on the phone and then immediately starts jumping on my lap for my attention, running behind the couch where she knows she is not allowed to go, or nips at my feet until i acknowledge her presence. My mom always laughs and says that is what I did when I was little. Wait till she was on the phone to ask her "can my friend spend the night?", "can i have a cookie", "mom, mom....MOOOOOOM!!!!"

Yeah...Fel is definitely a spoiled little guy, and he's only 3 months old! But he is a sweety and he loves to snuggle and be petted so I'm not complaining!

I have never seen Pookie sleep but I have seen Carrera sleep on several occassions. They were both spayed in November and before that Carrera was my couch potato buddy. I would get home from work, let her out and she would immediately come sit on me on the couch. I would pet her and in return she gave kisses-for hours. Sometimes she would be so comfy she would fall asleep and her little chin would rest on my arm. It was so sweet.

But, since she got fixed she doesnt like me. Stays away from me like the plague. I took her to get fixed so im the bad guy-still.

My bun Chloe does that. When I'm at my computer, I'll glance over at her and I'll see her stretched out and her head gets lower and lower, and her eyes start to close, then she'll jerk up and start the process all over again! I tell her "take a nap, you won't miss anything"! Too precious! My other bun seems to be on the alert all the time. I've never seen him asleep at all. Jasmine, my foster bunny falls asleep in my arms all the time.

My foster bunny Raymond is pretty much in a constant dead bunny flop, and he is always asleep with his head on his two little front paws, it is soo cute. I think he was so tweaked out at the shelter that he didn't sleep too much (not to mention his cage was so teensy, he might not have been able too!)
