       It is not difficult for owners to find that cats are either sleeping or sleepy most of the time every day. Why? Is it because the cat is sick? There must be some special reason why cats are so sleepy. Let’s talk about it today.

       1¡¢ Cats sleep for a long time

       In fact, each animal has its own fixed sleep time. For example, cattle, horses and elephants sleep about 3 hours a day, chimpanzees 9 hours, wolves 13 hours, lions 10-15 hours, and cats 14 hours. However, this is the sleeping time of cats living in the wild. If it is a domestic cat, it will sleep more.

       Cats raised by humans have more free time than wild cats because they don’t need to spend their time looking for food. According to the habit principle of “go to bed when you have nothing to do”, sleep time increases. Domestic cats sleep nearly 20 hours a day. When you get older, you sleep more. It can even be said that the cat was born to sleep, in order not to starve to death, get up from time to time to eat a meal. So it’s normal for cats to sleep.

       2¡¢ Is the cat really asleep?

       Pay attention to observe the sleeping cat and you will find that when the cat sleeps, as long as there is a slight sound, the cat will wake up. This is because the cat’s sleep is divided into shallow sleep and deep sleep. Most of the time, the cat is in a shallow sleep state, superficially asleep, but in fact, they still maintain a high degree of vigilance. Cats do not get enough rest when they are in a light sleep, which is equivalent to a person’s nap. Cats can only be in a deep sleep state when they are really relaxed. Cats in deep sleep will generally take a very comfortable posture, such as lying on their back in a twist like pattern, while cats tend to lie prone when they are in shallow sleep. Cat’s sleep is light sleep – deep sleep – light sleep in turn, and the light sleep time is very long, so the real time to get rest and relax is not particularly much, and the real sleep time is only 5 or 6 hours every day.

       3¡¢ The nature of sleeping in the daytime and coming out at night

       I believe that all parents who have cats feel the same way. That is, every morning when everyone is still dreaming, the cat gets up. And, often late at night, when people are sleeping, cats are mentally active. The cat itself is a natural hunter, and the night is a good time for prey to come out and look for food. And at night, the general light is very dark, but for cats, such lighting conditions are enough, they can clearly observe changes in the environment, to hunt. For cats, they have “Hunter” blood on their bodies, and their primitive nature makes them most awake in the early hours of the morning, while other times are always “confused” similar to sleeping. And this, even for cats, is hard to change.

       4¡¢ Cats sleeping and sick

       We have analyzed the reasons why cats sleep. Now we know that cats sleep for a long time. However, many owners encounter the situation that cats are very active, but they are sleepy recently. Is this because the cat is sick? In fact, this can not be generalized. Cats will change the length of their sleep due to seasonal changes. For example, when the weather is hot in summer, cats become more sleepy. This is just a regulation of the body, and the owner should not worry too much. However, if the cat is not only sleepy, but also accompanied by other symptoms, such as disordered fur, diarrhea, fever, runny nose and other symptoms, it shows that the cat is sick It’s time to see a doctor.

       In fact, we can regard the sleeping condition of a cat as a cat language. If the cat is relaxed when sleeping at home, it means that the home has brought it enough security. If the cat has been taking a rest in a defensive state, it shows that he does not trust the living environment. Then the owner should consider preparing a safe corner for the cat to make it have enough Enough space to rest.

       Happiness is a kind of feeling. It does not depend on people’s living conditions, but on people’s mentality. The characteristic of happiness is peace of mind. This is the truth that contented people are always happy.

       Happiness is the feeling when people’s desire is satisfied or partially satisfied. It is a kind of spiritual pleasure. People’s happiness is temporary, just like misfortune. As time goes by, happiness and unhappiness will gradually fade away. Therefore, if we want to continue to have happiness and want to live a happy life, we must constantly satisfy more desires. After people get a happiness, then people’s desire for the same or the same kind of happiness will decrease. When people get this or this kind of happiness again, their happiness will gradually decrease. When they reach enough n times, the desire will become zero, and the sense of happiness will become zero. When you achieve a wish, achieve a goal, love a person, be loved, a moment of joy, happiness and so on belong to happiness. Happiness has no distance, no standard, happiness is a feeling. When you are satisfied, it is happiness. Contentment keeps happiness fresh.

       Really lazy, don’t you catch mice at night? Cats like to go out late and go to bed half a night on a hot night. If it is cold, they usually eat and hold during the day, but they seldom go out at night. My cat is that when they go out to school at night, they wander around with other cats. In winter, they lie in my bed early. In winter, I sleep with cats

       1. Changing teeth affects appetite. Or not very comfortable. My cat has a few days of adaptation when changing teeth, and then the appetite is better;

       2. Cats have this stage. When they were young, they were very noisy. After five months and six months, they suddenly became very honest and changed;

       3. It’s important to pay attention to observation. Now it’s just guessing. As far as the current phenomenon is concerned, there is no problem in going to the hospital for examination, so we should observe more and touch the stomach with hands.

       Extended data:

       How to judge the health of a cat?

       1. Mental state

       This is the first item to check the health of your pet. But because cats usually sleep more time, you have to distinguish whether the cat is mentally ill or sleepy. The best way to do this is to take a cat stick and try to tease it.

       If the cat does not feel well, it will not have the spirit to play, it will tend to rest and recover. If you take it out to play, it will immediately climb back to its nest.

       2. Appetite and water

       Cats are in good spirits and can eat and pull, indicating that there is no emergency (probably healthy, but not necessarily)

       Loss of appetite may be due to picky eating, but probably due to physical discomfort. Food consumption surge is not good, it may be diabetes, hyperthyroidism. Do not like to drink water is easy to cause urinary tract problems, and the surge in drinking water may also be kidney disease or diabetes.

       Judge whether the cat has a bad appetite or is picky? Give it the snacks or cans it likes.

       3. Abnormal defecation

       Abnormal defecation behaviors include constipation, strenuous defecation, soft stool, diarrhea, color abnormality, feces with worms, bloody stool, etc.; as well as urination, blood urination, etc., which may be due to lower urinary tract problems, * diseases, diabetes and other health problems.

       4. General examination

       If your intuition tells you that your cat is not feeling well, in addition to the above three basic tests, then you need to touch and tap the cat’s body, including those areas that are not normally allowed to touch (be careful). Check whether there are protuberances, scabs and other abnormalities, whether the cat is angry and painful when touching the “tiger’s buttocks”, and whether the cat does not resist when touching the “tiger’s buttocks”.

       5. Decreased athletic ability

       The cat is willing to run and jump, but its physical condition can’t keep up with it, for example, it can’t jump up. This may be due to aging of the body, or bone and joint diseases or systemic diseases.

       6. Habit change

       Every cat has its own special habits, such as greeting you when you go home, hearing some kind of sound such as the sound of the water in the kitchen, following you to the toilet, inspecting the territory, etc. If these normal behaviors are reduced and become sleepy, those who shovel excrement should care about cats.

       7. Weight changes

       This includes weight loss or weight gain, so hold them regularly and feel their weight and muscle condition. Changes in weight are not necessarily proportional to appetite. For example, a cat with hyperthyroidism will continue to lose weight even though it is consumed heavily.

       8. Hair condition

       Pay attention to observe the cat’s hair, whether it becomes untidy and knotting, has no luster, or has more abnormal hair loss than in previous years, has alopecia areata, and even has abnormal pruritus, dermatophytes, rashes, lumps and other skin disease symptoms.

       9. Halitosis, drooling and other oral abnormalities

       Halitosis may include oral problems such as stomatitis and dental calculus, stomach discomfort such as dyspepsia and chronic gastritis, and may also be a manifestation of renal failure. Cat’s tooth health is more important than you think. It is suggested that adult cats fed with dry food should brush their teeth regularly and wash their teeth if possible to prevent and treat oral problems as soon as possible.

       10. Abnormal nose

       The nose of a healthy cat is moist and cold. If the nose is dry, it means that the cat is not very comfortable. If your cat’s nose is hot and dry, take your cat’s temperature immediately. The cat is likely to have a fever.

       11. Vomiting

       In particular, cats who eat cat food should pay attention to the problem of hair ball, and cats with chronic gastritis, dyspepsia and intermittent vomiting should pay attention to exercise improvement. Persistent vomiting may be an emergency. Medical examination is recommended.

       12. Respiratory tract abnormality

       Cats normally breathe 20 to 30 times a minute. If the number of breathing increases or decreases, dyspnea, wheezing, mouth breathing, etc., it may be a respiratory disease.

       13. Abnormal walking

       When a cat walks abnormally, it may be a claw injury, back stab, or joint abnormality. My cat once went into the kitchen and tried to eat. It was so hot that it would limp along like this.

       14. Abnormal eyes

       A healthy cat’s eyes should be bright and flexible. If the cat’s eyes are found to have white mucous membrane, excessive eye dropsy and abnormal eye dropsy, it is also a manifestation of abnormal health.

       15. Body temperature

       The body temperature of healthy cats ranged from 38.0 ¡æ to 39.6 ¡æ. If the rectal temperature measurement is inconvenient, you can feel the temperature changes of the cat’s nose and ear root, which can also be used as a reference. If the cat has a fever, it needs to be treated as soon as possible.

       Cat owners often see cats curling up on the sofa, sleeping lazily on the bed, on the top of furniture or on the windowsill, and their paws and other parts of the body often move involuntarily, which is a normal phenomenon. Although cats are good at sleeping, they usually sleep longer than adult cats, sleep longer in warm weather than in cold seasons, and sleep longer after eating than when hungry; when the least sleep is in estrus, the role of hormones makes cats neglect to rest and sleep less is understandable.

       Cats sleep a lot, but wake up easily. This is because cats sleep in two stages: deep sleep and shallow sleep. In deep sleep, the muscles are relaxed and the response to the sound in the environment is poor. Generally, it lasts about 6-7 minutes, followed by 20-30 minutes of shallow sleep. At this time, cats sleep lightly and are easily awakened by sounds. As cats’ deep sleep and light sleep alternate, cats are very alert when they sleep.

       Sleep out

       Cat’s sleep time is about twice that of human. But cats don’t sleep as intensively as people do. They sleep several times, so cats get up at any time of the night. The big headed lion of the cat family sleeps about 20 hours a day.

       Studies have shown that three-quarters of cats’ sleep is fake sleep, or napping. So, it seems that the cat sleeps 16 hours a day, but it only sleeps for 4 hours.

       People have various postures when they sleep, and cats, like humans, also have various postures when they sleep. Cats sleep on their stomach, sit and sometimes sleep on their backs. The cat still talks in his sleep, which is called. Cats wake up in nightmares and open their eyes.

       Cats are very careful about the choice of sleeping places. In summer, cats can accurately find a ventilated and cool place. In winter, the cat can find a warm place accurately. In addition, the cat also follows the movement of the sun many times to move to sleep. Like a sunflower, it’s always facing the sun.

       Cats always strive for the most comfortable place to sleep. For example, sleeping close to the heater often makes the cat’s tail scorched; sometimes the cat and her kitten will choose a comfortable place to sleep together, but it is easy for the kitten to suffocate and die; sometimes the cat will find a good place to sleep and trample over the furniture and supplies to damage.

       Now there’s no big problem. I think there are several reasons.

       Changing teeth affects appetite. Or not very comfortable. When my cat changes teeth, it has a few days of adaptation, and then its appetite is better.

       Weather, now it’s warm and the temperature is up. Give the cat more water.

       3 there is also this stage, my family has a cat is like this, very noisy when a child, 5 months 6 months, suddenly very honest. It’s changed.

       The important thing is.!! Watch out. It’s just guessing. According to your description, to be honest, going to the hospital will not be a problem. More observation, feel your stomach with your hands.

       The cat sleeps 18 hours a day, and the kitten is longer. If it sleeps well, it means that it trusts you~

       Sleep is an important behavior that animals can not lack. Sleep can relieve the fatigue of body and brain, and prepare strength and energy for the next activity.
