If you also are the ones that wake up every night because of their cats, it might be interesting to at least understand the reason.
Here are 3 reasons why :
1. It is a nocturnal animal
Originally, the cat hunts its prey at night and sleeps the rest of the day (about 18 hours a day). Being an animal that kept many of the instincts of its wild ancestors, it is not surprising, then, that it is more active at night.
2. You are his servant
If you give up, even once, to catch you and wake up in the middle of the night to feed it or open the door for it, you can be sure that it will not hesitate to wake you up again. He understood that you obeyed his desires and had no intention of denying himself.
3. He feels bored
If you spend a whole day at work, and in the evening when you return home you are too tired to play with your cat, it is normal for the cat to seek to attract your attention, even in the middle of the night.
