7 Reasons Your Cat Sleeps So Much - Part 3!

We all love to watch our kitties sleeping - there is nothing cuter than a purring ball all snuggled up - right?! But do you know all the reasons why your kitty sleeps so much? Welcome to part 3 of our sleep series!



Another reason your cat sleeps so much is simply that you may not realize that they’re awake when you’re asleep at night. 

This is because cats are what is called crepuscular animals, which means they are most active between the hours of dusk and dawn. This is the time us humans are winding down and settling in for the evening and going to sleep.

This crepuscular sleep pattern that your cat has is carried through from their wild roots. Out in the wild being active at dawn and dusk would boost their chances of hunting and catching prey. Even though they are now domesticated, they continue to mimic this behavior because hunting is an ingrained instinct.

So today’s cat tip is although we know that cat’s sleep 12 to 18 hours a day, they may be more awake in the evenings, going on excursions and having adventures while we’re sleeping. We just assume they’re sleeping more hours than they are.

So next time you see your cat sound asleep in the morning you can wonder if they’ve had a little adventure overnight while you were dreaming! (It’s such a pity they can’t tell us what they were up to!)

Keep giving your pets the best of natural life!
