Cats have a long number of loves (and probably an equally lengthy list of dislikes!) since they are such intelligent, sentient creatures. In most situations, your cat enjoys the same things you do, such as fresh, tasty food, lengthy sleep in comfy areas, and plenty of exciting activities, to mention a few.
Cats’ interests, fun, and excitement can change as they age, just like us—your cat may enjoy her feathered toy one day but find it dull the next. It is your responsibility as a kitty parent to detect when your cat’s interests shift so that you can keep her happy, healthy, and interested. Although cat preferences vary, these eight kitten “likes” are a good place to start.
1 Cats Enjoy Napping
It’s no secret that cats enjoy sleeping. In reality, the average cat sleeps for 12 to 16 hours every day! Because cats are nocturnal, they sleep the majority of the day away—and who can blame them? Everyone enjoys a long slumber in a snug, comfortable setting.
Keep in mind that kittens and senior cats will sleep more than an adolescent cat. However, if you are concerned that your cat is sleeping too much or too little, consult with your veterinarian about what is normal for his breed, age, activity level, and size.
