Why Do Cats Sleep So Much?

By | Behavior

One reason cats sleep so much is for energy conservation.

They use a special kind of sugar to fuel their bursts of energy. It takes time to restore this energy.

Cats sleep an average of 16 to 18 hours a day, but they tend to sleep in short increments of 10 to 30 minutes, hence the term, “cat nap”!

Why Do Cats Dislike Car Travel?

By | Behavior

Some people say the hardest part about a cat’s appointment at the vet is first getting them out of the house.

Unlike dogs, cats don’t like to leave their familiar surroundings. Even the presence of their owners does not reassure them because in a new environment, like a car, which sounds and smells strange to them, they can’t know what might happen. Also, cats have a very acute sense of balance, so the car’s motion might upset them.
