Cats sleeping in the sun

Most cats love to sleep in the sun.Why are they always looking for a warm spot to snuggle?  One reason could simply that they want to get a sound sleep. Cats require about 15 hours of sleep per day and warmth often helps them get their best rest. When cats sleep, their temperature drops slightly and sleeping in the sun can help make up the difference. You’ll notice that some cats not only enjoy the suns rays but they will search out a heating  vent or another source of heat. They love the warmth of your bed. That’s why you’ll often find them snuggled up next to you when you wake up in the morning. Keep in mind that cats cannot tolerate excessive or prolonged heat. If your cat goes outdoors in summer, make sure that you provide a shady area for him.

Remember, your pets count!
