How Long Is That Cat Nap??

Wednesday, December 30, 2015

catnapSometimes I wonder why my cats sleep sooooo much. When I’m at home, they spent most of the day curled up in their favorite spot fast asleep. I ask myself, is it the company? Am I that boring??

The amount of time a cat sleeps depends on it’s age and personality. Cats spend an average of 13 to 16 hours sleeping daily. Did you know that only the Opossum and the Bat sleeps more? They nap nearly 20 hours a day! Nobody is really sure why cats sleep so much. They’ve evolved from a long line of hunters and predators. Their sleep patterns reflect that. Cats are crepuscular which means that they are most active at dusk and dawn.

So don’t worry if your cat spends most of his day snuggled up in his cat bed. Don’t you wish you had the opportunity to sleep even half as much?
