Are Cats Nocturnal?

Have you ever been woken up by your cat at 3:00 am? 

A lot of people complain how their cats sleep all day and don't let them sleep all night. Some even tell me how their cat gets a burst of energy during the night time!

In today's blog post I'd like to address the question---Are cats nocturnal? 

Let's get started!

Did you know that wild felines like to hunt at night? 

But that shouldn't be problem for you, right? After all, your kitty gets plenty of food (and sleep!) during the day. 

So, domestic cats really don't really need to stay up at night and aren't really nocturnal. 

Here are a few things that'll help keep your cat asleep at night: 

  1. Provide your cat with a comfortable bed
  2. Try to entertain your cat during the day to keep it awake!
  3. Get an automatic feeder for your cat---this way your kitty won't wake you up in the morning crying for food!
