You may have heard a long time ago that in addition to humans, animals also dream, especially mammals.Among mammals, cats, dogs and monkeys are the longest dreams.

The dream of animals sounds very interesting, but unfortunately, they do not speak, and they cannot share what we dream of dreaming with us as soon as they wake up.But this can not stop scientists who have a strong interest in this -for the dreams of Wang Xingren, who can capture stupid humans and Wang Xingren who can capture stupid humans with appearance and eyes, the researchers have shown a greater.interest.

Studies have found that dogs tend to do running, dog barking and other actions in dreams, which are similar to the master when playing games.The cat, a veritable hunter, is more inclined to make a hunting action in the dream.

During the day, the average sleep time of the cat was 16 hours.Two -thirds of the time are sleeping.

The recognized cats of cats and madness also found that cats are always sleeping. In Japanese, "NEKO" is just like "NEKO" pronunciation. The translation is the cute little cute sleepingEssenceBut in fact, the cat’s real deep sleep time is only about 4 hours.Well, let’s talk about what the remaining 12 hours of sleeping (Zhe) is doing what the remaining 12 hours are doing today.

So far, humans and cats have lived together for nearly 10,000 years.However, compared with dogs that have been completely domesticated by humans and are also as pets, the cats and "shit officers" may only be cohabiting (obviously the dominant "shovel officer" is relatively low).Therefore, in order to be able to respond and act quickly, cats who still maintain strong wild instincts can only be used as "fake" when they are in light sleep.

Similar to human sleep cycles, cats also have REM sleep (light sleep) and non -REM sleep, and they are constantly circulating.During the Rem sleep process, although the skeletal muscles of the whole body are in a relaxed state, the brain is still in the same working state when it is awake. At this stage, the eyeball will show involuntarily, and the dream also appears in REM sleep.In other words, the 3/4 of the cat’s sleep time is in Rem sleep.

Human beings will have dreams in REM sleep. Can cats dream?This thing has been doubting since long ago.

In 1959, French scientist Michel Jouvet measured the muscle tension of cats during the Rem sleep in the experiment.He found that although the cats in this stage will have some behaviors similar to ears, bearded claws and even forelimb tremors, they cannot stand up in a state of upright, as if the muscles that enter the sleep state are softened as soon as they enter the whole body of the sleep state.EssenceExperienced shovel officials should have noticed these small movements when they sleep, so this does not prove whether the cat is really dreaming.Zhu Weit thought about it, this muscle was relaxed and couldn’t do anything.So he decided to find a way to relax the muscles in sleep.

Then, Zhu Weit really found a brain area called the Locus Colanleus in the brain stem, and its function was related to the stress reaction.After destroying this brain area with surgery, cats can still enter sleep normally, but when they sleep, they have hissing sound and starting to scratch it fiercely.Sometimes I even closed my eyes and ran around the cage for a minute or two, as if hunting other animals.In 1967, Zhu Weit also said in the report: "The sleeping animals can have such a fierce behavior, which is also scared."

Zhu Weit’s experiment strongly proves that cats are dreaming like people, and the most often interpreted in their dreams is their favorite activity -hunting.

Of course, cats’ dreams are not just hunting.There are also people in Japan who summarize the cat’s dream to speculate the content of "cat dream".

For example, when a cat emits "KUKU" such a short -promoted voice, the era of "KUKU" means that they have caught food in their dreams.If it was awakened at this time, the cat would feel that the food he caught was suddenly gone and it was particularly lost.Some cats may still extend their tongue in this dream, which is also very cute.Sometimes, after the sound of "KUKU", the cat pouts, and after finishing it, he exhaled with his nose.This is probably the unparalleled satisfaction after catching the prey.

There is also a more common thing that cats hum out in their sleep.This is speculated that they are the most relaxed dreams, maybe they still dream of dreaming in the dream of sleeping.

In addition, some cats hum hum when they sleep.This type of dream words seem to be the real dream "words".Many studies have shown that cats do not need to communicate with the same type in their own ethnic groups. The cat’s scream is created to communicate with humans (better controlling the "shovel officer").So when the cat made a "niamu" sound in the dream, was it asking for a small fish with the "shoveling officer", or would you like the small ball in the hands of the "shit officer"?

For example, cats may also suddenly make a "scared" sound when they sleep.I am afraid that in the dream, I encountered bad cats who snatched the food territory with myself, and they were ready to go up and do it.Or, when you see the "master" invincible and lovely sleeping face, the "shovel officer" who really wants to take a bite, and extend the hands of desire to the "master son" and harvest in the sleep."scare".However, after a "scared" sound, cats often wake up with a look of aggressive look, thinking about who I was doing with it?

Wang Xingren’s dream is

What about?

By the way, the dog will actually dream in the Rem sleep stage, but the content of the dream is obviously not much like a cat.Dogs tend to do running, dog barking and other actions in their dreams, similar to the situation when playing games.Moreover, some people tried to interpret the dog’s dream based on the behavior of the dog’s sleep.

Some dogs "” "when they sleep, pause," 唔 ", stop pause, and then" 唔 ", cycle back.According to people at the tenth level of dog language, the dog’s dream is not because of sadness or fear, but the emotion of excitement or surprise.So, did the dog see his dearest owner with his favorite cans in such a dream?Or do you say that a dog is empty at home and lonely at home and finally waited for the host to go home from school and shake his tail and rush up to touch his head?

Sometimes, dogs will lick or shake slightly in their dreams, and this behavior is considered to have dreamed that they have eaten delicious food.This is very common, but it is interesting that some people have observed that dogs often sigh after shaking their tongue.How to explain this tone?According to the big brothers, this represents the dog just stolen, and after being discovered by the owner, the food was gone, and his heart was suffering, grieving, uncomfortable, and wanted to cry.

In addition to the shaking of "speaking dreams" and the tongue, dogs often swing their limbs in their sleep.This is also because the muscles are relaxed in ReM’s sleep and cannot make a lot of movements. At this time, although it looks like swimming, they should actually run in dreams.For puppies, such dreams are also a way they practice running.

From the analysis of the above cats and dogs ‘dream analysis, we can also see that unlike human dreams with vision as the main body, cats and dogs’ dreams seem to be more of the sense of smell and action.And from the perspective of their dreams, expressions, and dreams of waking up, their dreams are mostly happy or full of expectations (suchThere are often horrible pictures or terrible sounds in dreams.Compared with the dreams of cats and dogs, we also tend to make us feel that the owner seems to play more in the dream of the dog, and the cat is probably not so concerned about his "shovel officer" (proud face).

Speaking of which, people think they can distinguish their dreams and reality.But do cats know whether they are in reality or dreams?For them to sleep twice the time when they sleep, maybe the real life that gets along with us is not necessarily their dreams!
