Let’s face it. Cats are boring. Sometimes. Why? If you’re sharing your home with a feline, you’ll know from experience that cats sleep an average of 12-16 hours a day. That’s more than half a day spent in bed!
Cats are crepuscular. And no, it doesn’t mean a proclivity to creep around and jump on a person unaware, although they are notorious for doing that. It means, cats are most active during the twilight hours of dawn and dusk. Feline twilight activity usually covers hunting, doing their litter business, and occasionally, hanging around with other cats in the neighborhood (for those cats that have access outdoors).
But the big question still hangs in the air: why do cats need more than half a day’s worth of sleep?
