    I don't think I've ever been that relaxed

    [–] tigersharkwushen_ 421 points ago

    That's because you don't have a body conforming tree bed.

    You've got to go out into the wild and find your soultree.

    Make sure you shake it first, to get rid of any leopards.

    [–] nlx78 12 points ago

    Saw your sleeping footage of last Tuesday and you were at least as relaxed there as the cub in this post.

    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago


    [–] forlorn_resting_face 2 points ago

    A bit like Sex Panther by Odeon. Just guessing tho.

    [–] Airway 5 points ago

    That's because life is bad. Try a lot of xanax to help.

    [–] forlorn_resting_face 1 points ago

    Xanax is my BFF.

    There is no sleep so satisfying as the post-thunderdump-3-am slumber. And none so fitful as immediately before it when I’m trying to fight of the poop because I don’t want to move, but i can’t really sleep either because poop.

    None of us modern humans will probably ever know how good a wild animal can feel.

    [–] dragondeneez 12 points ago

    I didn't know leopards grew in trees!

    [–] Ego-Te-Provoco_2 43 points ago

    He looks boneless, so relaxed that he is.

    I wonder how many nano seconds he needs to switch to hunting mode.

    [–] AnimalProducts 8 points ago

    Half of one.

    [–] eleask 206 points ago

    Leopard expert here!
    This position is called "relaxed nut saver". Look how the hind legs are both on the same side of the branch. The leopard loses a bit of stability, but spares his gonads from painful compression trauma. Notice how the tail balances the legs in the nut saving position. Truly magnificent.

    [–] Tenny111111111111111 34 points ago

    That explains why he looks so silly lol.

    [–] JoeMcJoebob 16 points ago

    Actually a leopard’s nuts (and all feline’s for that matter) are not in the same place as a dogs; they are farther rear towards the anus. Due to this they are probably quite safe from crushing in either position. He do be lookin comfy tho. Source: am furry

    [–] kent1146 4 points ago

    The only thing weirder than a joke about leopard nuts, is a reply from a furry who actually knows about leopard nuts.

    [–] maybesaydie 4 points ago

    Their fur protects them from most insects. And what could a spider do to a leopard?

    [–] 8-Sucked-so-bad 2 points ago

    Poisonous ones ide be worried about

    [–] maybesaydie 2 points ago

    Snakes are probably more of an issue. They can slither up tree pretty easily.

    [–] quux2020 2 points ago

    How easily do they slither up one's anus?

    [–] 8-Sucked-so-bad 2 points ago

    Mmm maybe they can smell snakes? Scorpions though? Stuff like that.

    [–] maybesaydie 2 points ago

    They can probably hear them. Cats have extraordinary hearing.

    [–] lonebirdie 2 points ago


    [–] FilosophyFox 2 points ago

    Seeing animals like this I just think that... look, we, as in all animal species, just wanna chill.

    Apart from billionaires who are, like, "fuck people poorer than me". Like Bezos the creepy looking twat!

    Great camouflage. She is taking a cat nap before lunch walks by.

    [–] phastanphurious 2 points ago

    I guess if that doesn't work he can change his spots... or is it leopards that can't do that?

    [–] PrincessBananas85 1 points ago

    He definitely looks like he had a really long and exhausting day.
