Why do cats sleep so much?

    The short answer to your question is that no one knows. The longer answer is that it could be a result of a few different things. First of all is diet. The protein rich diet that most cats have doesn’t take a whole lot of work to break down, and most cats don’t have to hunt to get their food–it’s placed right in front of them–so that means more time is freed up for sleep. The evolution of cats is also important–they are the descendants of hunters and gatherers, so they sleep most often during times when they would not have been required to go hunting, and they are active during prime hunting times. Whatever the reason, there’s not much cuter than a sleeping cat!
