Why do cats sleep so much?
November 06, 2019 6:53PM
Cats are built to be predators, and stalking prey takes a lot of energy. They’re programmed to recharge from all that taxing hunting with generous nap schedules—they can sleep up to 20 hours per day, depending on factors like age, disposition, and even the weather.
That can seem like a lot to us, especially because much of that sleep happens during the day. Although house cats are not strictly nocturnal, they are crepuscular, meaning they’re most active during dawn and dusk. Those twilight waking hours can seep into the wee hours of the morning, which explains why cats have been known to be most annoying at 4 a.m.
Long story short, cats sleep a lot during the day because they expend a lot of energy during dawn and dusk.

On average cats sleep about 13-18 hours a day! They do this to conserve energy.
I'm just adding, cats are crepuscular (most active at dawn and dusk). They may not seem it, like other animals, but they are
Because cats and even kittens have to sleep just like you! They need at least 10 hours of sleep or they'll be droopy and ill. If you get a bed with a hood on it and put a blanket in it they will be warm and it will keep drafts out. Often you will have to put your cat in it or he or she will not know its his or hers. Try not to put cat nip in a acts bed because they will think yay its play time. Feed your cat at least 2 meals a day! Get he or she to get use to one schedule for food and one type of food to get he or she used to. For more facts email me at yahoo.
