Why Do Cats Sleep So Much?

Cats have excellent reason to enjoy snoozing... Nonetheless, you could be taken aback by the amount of slumber they get on a daily basis.

It is estimated that the average cat sleeps anywhere from 12 to 15 hours per day, but that this time is usually broken up into several shorter naps.

Cat Sleep

Because of their evolutionary history as stalk-and-rush predators, cats require a lot of rest.

Aware about the Environment

Although cats look like they are fast asleep, they are actually very aware of their environment.


A common method for cats to sleep is curled up in a small space, such as next to their human or inside a box.

Sleep in Small Space

It's normal for cats to slumber up to 20 hours a day, but if they consistently sleep longer than that, something might be wrong.

However, if the problem continues, a trip to the vet should be scheduled to rule out any underlying health problems with the cat.
