Why your cat sleeps so much
Your cat can often be found napping around your home and you’ve become accustomed to finding your adorable little fur ball happily snoring the afternoon away. Why does she tend to sleep so much?
Cats simply need more sleep than humans do and will seek it out when they become tired. This means they will rest on an as-needed basis throughout the day and night whenever the opportunity to get some sleep arises. They will take advantage of peaceful times in your home when others are occupied so they can be awake later on when there is more excitement happening. Cats also eat a high-protein diet, which can take a lot of energy to digest. Resting often, particularly after meals, can help their bodies focus on digesting and extracting nutrients from their food.
