How Much Do Cats Sleep?


Adult cats typically sleep for 12-16 hours per day. However, some cats may sleep for more or less than this.


There are a number of factors that can affect cat sleep, including age, breed, health, and environment.


Kittens sleep for even longer than adult cats, typically around 18-20 hours per day. As they get older, they tend to sleep for less.


Some breeds of cats are more active than others, and they may sleep for less as a result. For example, Siamese cats are known for being very active.


If a cat is ill, they may sleep more than usual. This is because their bodies are working hard to fight off the illness.


The environment can also affect cat sleep. For example, if a cat is in a noisy or stressful environment, they may sleep less.
