Sheldon Cooper’s song from Big Bang Theory “Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty, Little ball of fur, Happy Kitty, Sleepy Kitty, purr, purr, purr…” perfectly sums up a cat’s sleeping habits. Because that’s all they need to fall into a deep slumber. And don’t worry, cats can fall asleep anywhere and anytime, so don’t bother buying a separate bed for them. That’s right, your kitty is capable of sleeping in a basin, in a small confined box, in a clothes dryer, and the list is endless.
A cat’s favorite pastime is not grooming itself to look beautiful, or plotting its next attack on the dog, they love to sleep like a lot.. lot, they sleep twice as much as we do. But hey, you can’t blame them. Nature has bestowed them with the marvelous ability to sleep for long hours. Life of a domesticated cat revolves around four basic activities: Eating, Meowing, Playing, and Sleeping. Sometimes, sleeping can encroach on the other three. One thing that can explain a cat’s sleeping pattern is that a majority of cats are crepuscular animals, meaning they are awake during dawn and dusk. So don’t assume that your cat was up all night if it wakes you up at 5 am in the morning.
