What is a normal amount of sleep? What diseases might sleeplessness signify?
April 2019 - If you think your cat sleeps an awful lot, youre right and theres nothing wrong with that. Cats naturally sleep about 17 hours per day fully two-thirds of their lives. But much of that slumber is not what we think of when we think of sleep. Its more akin to what your car does when it idles, ready to move at a moments notice. The trigger that might rouse your pet into becoming fully awake from her dozing might be prey, the smell of food, or someone entering the room. Your cat will be ready to respond as though she had not been asleep at all.
