How Many Hours a Day Do Cats Sleep?

Over half of cats sleep between 12 and 18 hours each day, while over 40% of

cats sleep longer than 18 hours. Most cats sleep more than they did when they were

younger, usually for longer stretches of time each day. Cats sleep more often throughout

the day than people do, which is known as a polyphasic sleep pattern. Humans typically sleep

for one lengthy period of time. The average length of these cat naps is 78

minutes. Cats often snooze for between 50 and 113 minutes, though.
