In their natural habitats, cats are nocturnal. They sleep almost all day. If your cat spends most of its active time home alone while you're at work or elsewhere, it may be looking for companionship. Unusual periods of interrupted sleep can be a sign of illness. It can be from pain from a toothache or arthritis to something more serious. Before you go to bed, decide how you will react to your cat. If you have a sleep disorder, it's best never to encourage your cat to sleep on your bed. You can give your cat a comfortable cat bed in a corner of the living room or even a bathroom.

The cat might use it after rubbing a bit of catnip on the bed. If all else fails, use swimmers' earplugs. They seal the ear canal and give you some relief. Always consult your doctor for health-related questions. They have examined your pet, know the pet's health. Having a safe, designated area such as a spare bedroom where your cat can sleep, eat and drink can be helpful. You should keep your cat out of your room by keeping your bedroom door closed and using room-darkening shades.
