This means that the best place for a kitten to sleep is a safe place that is protected from drafts and warm enough is the best setup. It’s a good idea to have the kitten close to you for the first few nights. Find a comfortable place next to your bed and if possible even a place off the floor.
Cats have different sleep-wake cycles than other animals and are often busy at night. Because cats are crepuscular, which means they hunt and are active in the evening or early morning. This cat behavior at night is sometimes referred to as night madness and can cause sleep deprivation for cat owners.
In conclusion, if your cat meows at night, you must completely and perfectly ignore it so as not to encourage the behavior. Keeping the cat occupied at night can prevent it from getting hungry or finding creative ways to get your attention.
Many owners think that putting their kitten in a cage at night is a good solution as it can help keep them safe and avoid trouble while you sleep. However, you should never lock your kitten in a cage at night.
Vets across the board recommend not keeping a cat cooped up in a room for more than 24 hours at a time. But your cat should be fine if you leave them in a room overnight with a clean litter box, a fresh bowl of water, and a full meal before you close the room door.
Or should I leave a light on for my kitty at night? Cats are crepuscular animals, which means they see better than humans at night. Keeping the lights off will help kittens sleep in the darkest hours and the remaining half light from outside should be enough for them to see in the dark.
Remember that cats can see in the dark much better than you or I, so even in the lowest light your kitty will easily find what they need. You can, however, leave the lights on the first night or provide a night light while they adjust to their surroundings.
If you don’t want your kitten to sleep in your bed with you, the best way to start is to show your kitten where he will be sleeping and gently nudge him in the same spot to get into the habit sleep night. Remember, your kitten’s needs are simple. He wants to feel warm and secure in a sheltered place.
