50-funny-pictures-of-cats-sleeping-in-weird-positions

Cats usually sleep between 13 and 16 hours a day. What is the reason they need so much rest? Expert Abigail Tucker, author of "The Lion in the Living Room" has an extremely interesting explanation.


1.


According to the expert, although the time dedicated to sleep differs from one cat to another, depending on age and personality, cats usually sleep between 13 and 16 hours a day. Only bats and opossums sleep more, almost 20 hours a day.


2.


"Everything has to do with the instinct of a predator. If, for example, herbivores graze for hours until they fill their stomachs with enough food, in the case of cats, hunting gives them a very short time to attack and devour their victim. This behavior has also been passed on to domestic cats, so they can spend most of the day sleeping, like lions, explained Abigail Tucker.


3.


Another characteristic of cats is that they are twilight animals, being more active at sunset and at dawn. During the day, they rest and at night they become active.


4.


"On the other hand, many cats, especially apartment cats, sleep rather out of boredom, having nothing to stimulate them, such as those raised in the yard," she added.


5.


Studies show that cats sleep has two phases: REM (Rapid eye movement) - characterized by rapid eye movement, when dreams occur, and non-REM sleep (NREM) or deep sleep.


6.


During NREM sleep, the cat's body recovers. Bones grow, muscles develop. The immune system strengthens. 60% of a cat's sleep is REM sleep, three times less than in humans.


7.


According to the expert, when sleeping, the cat must have its own bed. "Cats need their space, where they can sleep better. If you make a special cage for him, even a box, the cat will be much happier than if you keep him in bed ", the expert added.
