Tetsuro, the Japanese kitten, teaches us how to sleep
An adorable Japanese kitten named Tetsuro, sleeps flat on his back with his hands at his sides. Experts call this the “soldier” position and say it’s good for your back, as it stretches out your vertebrae and puts less stress on the spine. But this position can also worsen snoring and sleep apnea. Sleep apnea causes erratic sleep patterns, and can also lead to irritability and health issues such as high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke and depression. But those issues don’t seem to bother Tetsuro. He took the internet by storm after his owner posted numerous pictures and videos of his unusual sleeping position (for a cat, anyway). He’s even taken over his human’s office chair.
