We all know that cats love to snuggle and sleep. Adult cats sleep anywhere from 12 to 20 hours a day, depending on their age, and the need for sleep increases as they get older.

The diet and exercise lifestyles of the people are often reflected in their pet's health and lifestyle. Active people, active pets. And vice versa. This isn't always true, of course, but being mindful of a healthy lifestyle helps.

In the next installment, we will look at what Oliver eats and how often. Bonnie will also report in with an official weight for Oliver. Stay tuned.
