If your cat gives you the impression of sleeping all the time, it's false! In fact, he satisfies this crucial need with only one eye closed. Nestled in the hollow of the sofa, perched half-closed eyes on the top of a wardrobe, spread out in the sun in the garden, asleep on a warm radiator, your pet always keeps his senses aroused. Nothing escapes him. Overall, the cat sleeps more than a human but in short periods. For those cats who are fortunate to live in a garden, the night will be the ideal moment to go out especially during the warm weather. Leaving the house will also satisfy his hunting instinct. In fact, it is generally agreed that the behavior of the feline animal is based on a certain number of basic instincts: pursuit, flight, hunting and stalking, territory, communication, aggression and social relationships.
Your dog is either glued to your shoes or falls fast asleep inside its basket when you are nearby. You're ready to go out and there he is waiting for you at the door. Clearly, not a single moment of his life seems to be separated from yours. It's a kind of a partnership! Indeed, the affection that your dog gives you often takes precedence over all of its other needs. As long as you are with him your dog can go from a deep sleep to play in a few minutes. If your dog is a heavy sleeper, he will take many short naps so as to fit into your lifestyle.
However, some differences come into play. A dog places great importance on its living space that he sees as an inviolable sanctuary. With even greater determination he shares this territory with the master of the house: you. As a consequence, your pet might very well wake you from a deep slumber and repel an intruder in the middle of the night!
