Kitty’s cat naps – they love their cat beds!

cats-in-bedIs your cat  “cat napping” its life away? Don’t be concerned. Domestic cats are similar or wild cats in many ways including their sleep and activity patterns which are called crepuscular. This means that they are active at dawn and dusk which is when their prey is out and about. The rest of the hours in the day are spent conserving their energy for the big expenditure they must make in order to hunt.  Our domesticated cats obviously don’t need to worry about such things but their genes enable them to keep a schedule full of down time. An average of 16 hours a day or two thirds of their lives are spent resting or sleeping. My older cat Mollie doesn’t even get up when it’s her snack time anymore. I spoil her and bring the snacks to her!  If you notice any big changes like listlessness or not eating, contact your veterinarian. Otherwise just get a comfortable cat bed and your cat will love you!

Make Sure Your Kitten Can Catch Some Zs

There’s nothing better than getting home after a hard day and resting on a high quality and inviting bed. It seems like the stress of even the worst day can be alleviated with the right bed and bed accessories. And if this holds true for humans, why not pets? Remember that sleep is just as important for our four legged friends, and for that reason, you should always ensure that they have a safe, comfortable, and luxurious place to rest.

Whether you’re looking for a dog bed or a cat bed, make sure your pet bed fits your animal correctly. A bed that’s too small will be uncomfortable for your pet, and they simply won’t enjoy sleeping in that space. Just like you need your own private space, so do your animals. Make sure that space is the best it can possibly be. Your furry friends deserve it!
