I find it strange, but The Hopper likes to lay on his back like this.
I've attributed it to the fact that he's 22 lbs., which in human terms is about 250. He must have a lot of strain on his back, so he finds laying directly on his spine takes some of the kinks out. He lays like this for hours at a time.
Is this normal? Brian says that he's never seen a cat do this, like this, for as long as he does...
Another freak in the family. Great. Just what we need.
