Tip 49 – Sleeping cats – My cat sleeps all the time

Cats sleep a lot and it is perfectly normal. In fact an average house cat will sleep the majority of its life away. It’s one of their most favorite activities and they are really good at it. Most cats will sleep about 16 hours a day, and some even more than that. Whoever said it’s a dog’s life, obviously never spent time with a cat.

Cat sleeping patterns

The expression cat nap refers to the light sleeping pattern of most cats, most of the time. About three quarters of a cat’s sleeping time is light sleep. The cat can awaken very quickly, and to an observer it looks like they are not fully asleep. Their eyelids may even be slightly open. Again this is genetically related and governed by evolution. A cat that can awaken quickly can more easily escape from predators or fight with possible intruders. The remaining 25 per cent of a cat’s sleeping pattern is deep sleep. This is where they do their dreaming. Their paws and faces may twitch during this type of sleep.
