why do cats like to curl up in the sink?

Raven is a silly cat. She is not overly friendly but she does seem to want to be in whatever room I am in. She escpecially likes to follow me into the bathroom. And when she does she curls up in the sink and purrs and purrs. She does not go in there just by herself and curl in the sink.
Why do cats do that?

It's cool and perfectly shaped for a cat to curl up in. Also, its a good way to get attention if she knows you're going to want to use that sink.

Zane used to do this, but he stopped. I think that one day the bathroom door blew shut and he was trapped in there for an afternoon.

The shape of sinks usually accomodate most cat's body quite well. I have found that longhaired cats in particular will sleep in the sink during Summer. If you place your hand in the sink you will find it, along with the bathtub, are the coolest places around. But of course the bathtub does not fit that well.

that is funny, tonight I went into the bathroom and Raven was curled up in there for the first time without me in there first, and Jack was stretched out along the back of the tub. They are hot.
It is hot but I am trying to be frugel and not run the air conditioner unless I am truly misrable.

That looks like Zane--except Zane's about twice that big.

He's taken to jumping into the tub--and then can't jump out again, so he yowls until I come and pick him up. What he's going to do Monday when I go back to work.
