Why my cat sleep all day ?
Why my cat sleep all day ? My cat have 5 years old.
Quite simply because while you are sleeping at night, he/she is up prowling and playing.
Is this the norm for your cat? A lot of cats will sleep all day and stay up all night, but if your cat usually does not do this then I would think of getting him/her checked out.
This behavior is not unusual. Cats are nocturnal animals. They are active during the night hours and generally rest during daylight. In the wild, cats generally hunted at night, using their highly developed senses of hearing, smell and sight to their advantage. During the day they could climb to the top of a tree and rest in safety.
Unless your cat has adapted to activity during the day and sleeping at night, then I wouldn't worry. If you think there is a problem you should visit your vet.
It's a common misunderstanding that cats are nocturnal. They aren't. By nature, they're crepuscular. In other words, they normally are most active on the borders between night and day.
Cats need to sleep more than people do, and domesticated cats are most likely to do so when there are the fewest interesting things going on. Cats have active minds and are always seeking something interesting to see, smell and do. Their sense of safety is largely oriented around knowing what's in their environment in detail. Change something around, and a healthy cat will check it out immediately. An inborn spirit of playfulness makes them fun to be around.
In watching most domestic cats, I see them as being bored with their environment, not played with or given interesting things to explore and do. Cats will sleep out of sheer boredom, too.
Most cats sleep all day. If you watch any documentaries about wild cats, most will sleep most of the day. This is a nature issue as food is a little more scarce in the wild, so to sleep is to conserve energy. You notice wild cats are more active at night for a few hours... this is because it is cooler, most animals they are hunting are not always on the move so it is easier to hunt.
It's very normal for a cat to sleep all day. NO worries.
