Slept over and hides (5)


I believe the answer is:


'hides' is the definition.
(I know this)

'slept over' is the wordplay.
'over' indicates anagramming the letters.
'slept' is an anagram of 'PELTS'.

'and' is the link.

(Other definitions for pelts that I've seen before include "Animal skins with fur still on" , "Throws missiles for animal skins" , "Animal hides" , "Animal furs" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
