Cat’s Crazy Time: Cat Facts and Cat Naps
Outdoor cats are active both day and night, but they tend to be a little more active at night. Cats conserve energy by sleeping more than most animals, especially as they grow older. Most cats sleep between 12 and 16 hours a day, while some cats can sleep as much as 20 hours. While asleep, cats experience short periods of rapid eye movement sleep, often accompanied by muscle twitches, suggesting that they might be dreaming.
If you had to paint a picture of a cat’s worst nightmare, it might include dogs, water, or a trip to the vet. In fact, if you were to ask a cat owner about their worst nightmare, it might be trying to get their furry friend to the vet.
Good news for all cat owners: a study shows that music specifically designed for cats may calm them in stressful situations. Ronald Koh and colleagues at Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine studied how cats’ physiological and behavioral responses changed while listening to different types of music during veterinary checkups.
