Understanding the Reason Why Your Kitten Is Sleepy
Kittens are adorable creatures. The way they snuggle up beside you and go off to sleep is an action worth filming. But do you often find the kittens sleeping for long periods? They take a nap whenever they get a chance, and that’s why you don’t get to see them playing around the house. You may think that your kittens are facing a dormant illness, but that’s not why they sleep for so long. There are various reasons associated with sleepy kittens.
Temporary nap activities
There are two characteristics of sleep patterns that indicate the brain activity of kittens. Their activity was recorded using an electroencephalograph that records pulses and waves while they sleep. The reports show that when kittens are awake, their brain broadcasts waves in little, but high peaks. This has a direct impact on their body, and they tend to doze off for a while. The immediate sleep after a flurry of activities lasts for 15 to 30 minutes. During this time, the kitten’s brain produces slow and irregular waves that are not too deep to make them sleep for a long time. That is why you will often see your kittens sleeping with their paws tucked beneath, and their heads raised. Due to the irregular waves, the kittens can spring into action as soon as they hear a noise or notice any activity around them.
Deep sleepy kittens
The actual time of kittens going through deep sleep is about five minutes. Kittens take time to move from temporary naps to a deep sleep. As their brain gradually produces faster and more regular waves, their brain patterns change. The brain becomes smaller and the kittens will completely relax after a while. This is the time when it is difficult to wake them up. It is also known as rapid sleep because their brain waves move rapidly during this time.
Rapid sleeps usually last for approximately five minutes, and the kittens return to the irregular slow-wave sleep. This process tends to alternate when the kittens finally sleep at night. But during major portions of the day, the kittens only go through the temporary nap phase where they are sleepy, but their brain is active enough to send signals to wake them up if necessary. So, if your kittens are just a few days old, and they sleep for 16 to 20 hours a day, don’t be overwhelmed. This continues until they are about a month old.
