Ten Amazing Pet Feats (Slideshow)

1. Beauty Sleep

Being nocturnal predators, youíll most likely see a cat sleeping during the day. But cats really do love to sleep, day or night. In fact, cats spend up to 16 hours a day sleeping. According to Catscans.com, this can mean that “a seven year-old cat has only been awake for two years of its life!” Itís also worth mentioning that a good part of their waking hours (around 30-40 percent) is spent grooming.
