Kittens are a bit different to puppies and human babies in that they'll generally spend most of their day away. However, when they sleep, like in these pictures, we're sure you'll agree they're darned cute, and we're sure you'll say "awww."

Aside from maybe breaking the internet with their cuteness, it's interesting that as a kitten grows, it can go from having bundles of energy and sleeping for around a few hours a day, to growing up and sleeping for up to 18 hours from 24.

As always, vote for which sleeping kitty is your favourite, and feel free to share any similar images you have, too.

This cutie must be from Sheldon's song because looks just like a little ball of fur ("Soft kitty,/ Warm kitty,/ Little ball of fur,/ Happy kitty,/ Sleepy kitty,/ Purr, purr, purr.")
