Why Do Cats Sleep So Much?

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”!
