I think I want to be a cat! She has spent all day asleep, slept on my feet most of the night and shouted at me for getting in the bath. Luckily she is learning fairly fast that the new nursery isn't a cat allowable place and sits at the door whilst we are getting it ready. Now we just need her to learn that about the Moses basket! That training starts tomorrow smile

It's because you aren't working and are at home watching them. They tend to be nocturnal. Ours sleep most of the day and whenever else they can get away with it.

Ours seem to be in semi hibernation. They're slightly more animated for about 15 minutes twice a day when they stalk each other, but that's it really. And one of them does enormous contented grunty happy snoring sounds tooconfused. I think you probably are just noticing it more now you are home. I am at home too and mine are always kipping somewhere or another.

Every winter I get concerned about my mog and her sleeping and then I remember, she is much smarter than I am. I persist in going out to work and to socialise and to walk in the cold and wet and ice from October to April.

She goes to bed.

I started working from home in July and my boys spend all day in bed. They probably always did but I wasn't home to see them. smile

I think cats are supposed to sleep most of the time. my cat is currently sleeping on my jammies on the bathroom floor. smile

Sometimes I twitch their ears, just to make sure they're still alive, so slothful are my two in the winter. No shortage of wakefulness around teatime, strangely enough fhmm

I think they sleep something ridiculous like 20 hours per day!

If it's cold my cat sleeps a lot.

When it's cold it's most of the day.

All of a sudden Cleo has started sleeping lots, I can't decide if this is because she has just turned 4 or whether it is just that I haven't noticed how much she sleeps as I have just started maternity and I am now home all day. It maybe that because she wasn't seeing me through the day she seemed more active when she shouted at me demanding attention when I got in from work. She is permanently on the bed with happy, contented sleep face!
