30 most hilarious pictures with sleeping kittens
In the first week, your cat kitty sleep over 20 hours a day: about 90% of the time! Her sleep is light, restless, with small rapid contractions of the muscles of the face and ears and can even make barely perceptible sounds. Let's find out together with Bemorepanda more interesting things about sleeping kittens!
There are signs of "superficial sleep" (sometimes called paradoxical sleep or REM sleep - rapid eye movement). You may also notice that the newborn sleeps with his siblings with his mother. Because he is not yet able to adjust his body temperature on his own, he sleeps instinctively to warm up and feel protected.
Remember that your kitten can double in size in the first week of life, and for such a fast growth process it takes a lot of sleep. Among other things, sleep allows your little friend to rest and, in addition, strengthens the learning and memorization process.
Sleep, along with a proper diet, is essential for the development of your cat's brain, nervous system, muscles and bones. The frequency and duration of sleep periods will depend on the age, but also on the personality and lifestyle of the cat; the more active the cat, the more it should sleep.
Cats sleep, on average, 15 hours a day and some of them can even sleep 20 hours. Kittens and older cats tend to sleep more than adults. Have you ever wondered what causes this phenomenon?
They are nocturnal predators
Cats are most active from sunset to sunrise, because they are nocturnal predators. Since most of their activity takes place at night, cats sleep most of the day.
Cats have the body of a predator, adapted to running and hunting (especially at night). Bigger cats, such as lions, have a similar cycle during the day.
Prey hunting requires a very high energy consumption. Even if the only thing your pet cat hunts is the feathered toy, its body was created to conserve energy.
They are vigilant
Like humans, cats have light sleep and deep sleep. When your cat only moans (which takes about 15-30 minutes), it will position its body so that it can jump in case of danger.
Deep sleep lasts about 5 minutes, after which the cat will return to moaning. This pattern continues until he wakes up.
They are affected by the weather
Cats' behavior can vary depending on breed, age, temperament, health, etc., but experts have noticed that cats tend to sleep more if it is raining or cold outside.
They can adapt
Even if cats prefer to be active at night, they adapt very easily. If your cat notices that he will spend more time with you if he sleeps at night and is awake during the day, he will adjust his sleep pattern.
