The kitten is very tired, or ate, so falls asleep on the go. Besides age, satiety plays an important role for a good sleep. Eating the cat immediately looks out to a quiet place and goes to take a nap, while the hungry have to stay awake.
This is especially noticeable when it comes to kittens: their behavior is easy to determine whether they have enough food. In addition, one should not forget about peace of mind. If the cat sleeps little, all the time “on the lookout”, we conclude that the animal is under stress and doesn’t trust their owners.
It’s just afraid to fall asleep, until someone else is awake. This situation requires action, because lack of sleep affects cats very badly – they become nervous, lose weight, mental problems can begin.
