You can interpret the temperature of a room in your home by watching a cat as it naps. Try this easy and fun science experiment. You will form a theory or hypothesis about how temperature affects the napping position of a cat.
You will need :
2. Repeat your observations for several days with different weather conditions.
3. Look at all of your drawings and notes.
Try to write a theory or hypothesis for the way that temperature
affects the cat's sleeping position.
When the temperature is warmer, a cat will usually sleep less tightly curled, with their tail looser and paws out. On hot days, most cats sleep stretched out, some on their sides or backs to allow their body heat to escape more easily.
