10. It turns out that big cats have a similar habit!

Ingrid Johnson, a cat behaviorist, offered an explanation as to why cats do this.

“Just like humans, cats are no strangers to seeking out comfort and they may choose to simply rest their head because it is there and easily accessible,” Ingrid told Bored Panda.

The warmth it provides is also a bonus. “Concrete often heats up and provides a nice warm place to sunbathe,” Ingrid continued.

Ingrid added: “I would be willing to bet if something soft and cozy were provided as an option, they would choose that over a parking bumper, but if they are an indoor/outdoor cat or a feral cat they are essentially using this as a pillow!”
