Hard to believe but cats actually spend most of their lives asleep, the average cat will sleep between 16-20 hours per day. But why do they prefer to sleep with us?
1: Some like it hot.
That’s right, cats like warmth. You may have noticed your cat sleeping next to the fire, or out in the sunniest spot in the garden. There’s a good reason for that, its called heat. When you’re all tucked up in bed fast asleep, you are nice and warm and you instantly become a cat magnet.
Cats are at their most vulnerable when they are asleep. Think about it, when you are out in the wild, fast asleep you could be attacked before you had the chance to wake up. So give yourself a pat on the back, your cat chose to sleep with because it feels safe.
3: They simply love you.
Your cat grows attached to you mainly because it loves you. Although cats are not the very best at showing emotions, they certainly do have them. Cats express their love by giving you smooches, pawing at your face, licking you, accompanying you always, and lying on the very same bed with you is yet another way. Your kitty feels completely at home with your scent, so they are likely to be in places that have traces of you.
