My Kitten Falls Asleep When Feeding?

Nursing kittens and cats will often fall asleep while nursing. This is because they are resting, after all the work of eating and digesting their food. This can continue for a short period of time but should not cause any worries as it’s normal behaviour. If your kitten or cat goes into such a deep sleep that you cannot wake them up then this could be indicative of illness whereby they may need to take some medication to help with their condition.
