Webcams to the rescue!
I’m an unrepentant cat lover (take a hike, dog people! (grin)), and thankfully, there are a couple of cat rescue places that have hooked up webcams so people like me can watch kittens napping 24/7.

The Kitten Academy is a fostering and rescue place in Connecticut.
The KitKat Playroom does the same thing in New Jersey.
