I have a 5 month old girl chi and she sleeps in her crate from 9 pm til 7 am. She will get up, go potty and then sleep on the sofa under a blanket til about 9am. I have had her for 4 months and she has always done this. I would think she would be very hungry when she first gets up but she will not eat a thing until 10am or so. The rest of the day she eats fine. Is this normal. She is growing and gaining weight and is healthy.
