Top best answers to the question «Why do cats sometimes sleep with their eyes open»

  • It is quite normal for a cat to sometimes leave their eyes open or partially open during sleep. For cats, their sleep consists of two basic phases: Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep, when dreams occur, and Non-REM (NREM) or deep sleep. I guess it's all normal.
  • The cat is seeking comfort and protection while it rests. A sick cat may also sleep with one or both eyes open, implying that the cat feels vulnerable. It is unwilling to fall into a deep sleep in case it needs to react to changing circumstances. A cat curled up in a ball is a common sight in colder months.
