Cats tend to sleep twenty-five hours a day, and then they need a nap afterwards to recover from their exhaustive rest period. While cats may seem lazy, they’re just conserving energy like any predator would do so they have the strength for bursts of energy to catch their prey.

Like humans, cats have different types of sleep patterns that lets them nap or fall into deep sleep, which is just like napping only more intense to justify sleeping some more. Unlike humans, cats often nap for short periods of time before going back to sleep again because they’re so tired from waking up. Plus, bossing around humans can be so exhausting.
