Camera Captures What Kittens Really Do At Night

If you have cats, you know that they do NOT just sleep through the night! Well, guess what? Neither do kittens! Kittens are baby cats and cats by nature are crepuscular-meaning that they are most active during the twilight hours of dawn and dusk. Many people think that all cats are nocturnal, but this is not true for house cats. 

While house cats are not usually up hunting for prey all night, unless it's your toes, they are still up for a few hours each night. What do they do to occupy their time? Usually, they play, run around and just get out all of their built up energy!

I have two cats and frequently hear mysterious sounds at night and early in the morning. When I get up to check it out I realize it is only one of my precious felines, being crazy. Trust me, crazy is the right word! 

One of my cats likes to run from one end of the house to the other and then quickly turn and run back to the other side! I frequently find my other cat on the countertop or knocking things off shelves and tables. One thing the girl does and I don't understand, is meowing into the baby monitor. Do you think she knows that I can hear her? Hmm?

Kittens are babies and are still growing so, of course, they do need a little more sleep than their grown-up counterparts. Cats sleep about 16 hours a day and kittens usually about 20 hours a day. But, even in that small window of wake time they sure can get into some mischief! 

Cat Man Chris, from the Cole and Marmalade YouTube channel, rescued a group of feral kittens. After their rescue, they were still quite wild and not used to humans at all. They were kept together in a large cage and were very noisy at night.

Chris decided to find out just exactly what they were up to during the wee hours. He had a brilliant idea how to find out! He set up his night vision camera to capture footage of the four feisty felines and what he caught is sure to bring a smile to your face.
