Now I am sure we can all agree on how much we love our furry family members and each and every one of us would most likely do ANYTHING to make them happy.
But how many of us have lost sleep thanks to their nightly activities? A cat waking you up at 4 am for breakfast? The wall of death (only those with Oriental cats and similar breeds may understand this… yes they can and will run around the walls of your room without touching the floor!!!)
allows you to add multiple pets (Cats, dogs, hamsters, rabbits, birds) and will provide some fun facts on hours of sleep you lost or how many litter trays you’ve cleaned for your family!
Apparenly between our 4 we lost a combined amount of….
…228 days of sleep LOL
Let us know what your calculation comes back with in terms of hours or fun facts!

Online Tool Reveals How Much Sleep Pet Owners Have Lost Due To Their Furry Friends
A new tool has launched which allows users to see just how much sleep they’ve lost thanks to their pets.
It’s common knowledge that having a baby causes new parents to lose sleep, but pets are also guilty of keeping us up at night, with cat owners losing around 728 hours of sleep in the first year of owning a feline companion.
Alongside uncovering the amount of shut-eye missed out on, the calculator also reveals other ways pet owners have spent their time. For example, cat owners change around 730 litter trays in their first year of owning a cat, while rabbit owners clear out their bunny’s hutch around 208 times.
The site also highlights the effects of sleep deprivation on pet owners. One in eight pet owners admit accidentally mixing up their pet’s food with their own, while a quarter have said goodbye to their pet and forgotten about their spouse when leaving in the morning.
Tara Hall, spokesperson for www.hillarys.co.uk, commented:
“It’s easy to forget just how much owning a pet can turn your life upside down, and this tool just shows that. We love our pets, and everything that comes with them, but it is slightly worrying to hear that people are accidentally eating pet food!”
We hope you found this as entertaining as we did!
