Cats are champion sleepers, clocking around 15 hours a day, but their sleep cycles aren't the same as ours.

A cat who snoozes the day away might be ready to compete in the Kitty Olympics come 2am, racing around the room and leaping off furniture.

Athletic feats aside, cats may snore, scratch or simply prod you for attention during your sleeping hours, which can take a toll on your ability to get good rest, and leave you feeling drowsy and sluggish the next day.
