Cats - Masters of Sleep Disruption!

Hey Doc, Why does my cat wake me up at 3 or 4 AM?

This is a very common question from cat owners. 

The answer is really quite simple - it's what cats were designed to do.  By nature they are a crepuscular animal and no, that doesn't have to do with their muscles ;)     This means they are most active during twilight or the transition time between night and day and day and night.   Cats are not the only animals with that claim to fame - deer and rabbits also join them in that title.
