No matter what time you go to bed, it seems like your cat’s sleeping schedule will be different enough so it will stay awake and annoy you with its noise and activities.

Cats typically sleep 15 hours a day, which means they’re only awake long enough to run between your legs and get in your way when you’re in a hurry to get somewhere. If you want your cat to sleep at the same time you do, good luck, but there are some tricks you can try to alter your cat’s sleeping schedule such as changing the times when you feed your cat.
