Some of the nation’s snooziest pets in pictures

Snoozy pets have stolen the hearts of the nation, as photos flood in for a competition to find the UK’s sleepiest animals.

Recent research revealed that over a third of Brits don’t let their pets sleep in or on their own bed, meaning they often need to find somewhere else to sleep, regularly dozing off in some bizarre positions.

That’s why online bed and mattress specialist, Bed SOS, encouraged Brits to submit photos of their furry companions, fast asleep in unexpected positions or locations, in a bid to find the UK’s sleepiest pet and has so far had over 400 entries.

Danny Richmond, managing director of Bed SOS, said: “We’ve been inundated with entries already and the competition isn’t over yet. It’s going to be tough choosing a winner; it seems household pets love a snooze everywhere from our beds to around the house, and owners love to take snaps. After all, who doesn’t love seeing cute photos of pets sleeping in hilarious positions?”

The nationwide competition closes at 12pm on Monday 27th January, so you haven’t got long to get your entries in to be with a chance of winning a brand-new bed worth £400.

Entrants are asked to send in a photo of their sleepy pet and a selection of entries can be found below:
