Achi has always been a very affectionate kitty, loving nothing more than spending time curled up with his adoring owner, Lomphonten Lomphontan of Thailand.

But Lomphonten recently learned that he and his cuddly cat’s most epic snuggle sessions have actually been taking place while he’s out cold.

A while back, Lomphonten set up a hidden camera at his house to keep tabs on Achi while he’s at work. However, the most interesting footage came when Lomphonten decided to face the camera toward his bed at night — revealing exactly what his cat was up to as he slept.

Achi, it turns out, has been making himself quite comfortable.

Reviewing the video, Lomphonten found that, after he’s dozed off, Achi kicks into action — taking the opportunity to not merely snuggle by his side, but to indulge himself with even more.

Night after night, Achi is seen climbing atop Lomphonten’s chest, confirming with a paw that he’s indeed asleep.

Then he plops his body directly on Lomphonten’s face.

Essentially, what’s been happening on a nightly basis is that Achi has been choking his owner out — with love, of course.

Now, Lomphonten might not normally allow for this in-his-face type of snuggle, but up until seeing the footage, he’d been unaware of Achi’s evening ritual.

Suddenly, those dreams of suffocating all made sense.

“I sat and watched [the footage] one night,” Lomphonten told. “It was very funny.”

Despite being found out, Achi is hardly apologetic. But that’s more than all right, in his owner’s opinion.

“I feel very much in love with him that he loves me like this,” Lomphonten said.

Lomphonten has no plans to dissuade Achi from making himself as comfortable as he wishes at night, knowing that the cat’s desire to be as close to him as possible is really just a reflection of what’s in his heart.

“It’s a show of love,” Lomphonten said.
