On average cats can sleep anywhere from 12 to 16 hours a day, so it is safe to say they love to sleep and take naps. Cats are nocturnal creatures meaning they sleep most of the day, so you will probably often see your cat curled up all cosy and comfortable taking a mid-afternoon nap.
A cat is very thorough with their grooming, they spend hours a day grooming themselves. They do this for various reasons such as: keeping themselves clean, makes them feel relaxed and helps them bond with their kittens.

Playtime for cats is essential for their health and development and should be done daily. Playtime will help exercises some of the natural instincts they would partake in the wild like stalking, hunting and capturing prey. Playtime keeps them happy, healthy and engaged.
