    Foxes can rest under trees, so they and all animals should sleep at night! They could use the foxes animation, and or the cat’s animation!

    I agree, there should absolutely be a day/ night cycle for the mobs

    This would add more immersion !

    and now that we see Foxes sleeping i think we could have, for most mobs, sleeping behavours

    I think with the new foxes and bees sleeping, this trend should be added to old mobs as well.

    Yes this would make sense.   I mean foxes and bats have resting animation so why don't other mobs?

    I was just talking about this with someone!!! It would add so much more to Minecraft and it would definitely be worth implementing. It's such a small change but it makes such a big difference in the Minecraft experience! Just think about all the animals sleeping at night... IT WOULD BE ADORABLE.

    I agree. Animals (sheep, pigs, cows, cats, dogs/wolves, foxes, birds) should sleep at night. If there is a mob near-by or they are attacked by a player they wake up and run away. Cats should spend a lot of time sleeping, during both the day and the night, but wake up if the player is holding a fish.

    Animating the animal torso to expand/contract when sleeping to mimic breathing would also be awesome.

    Horses should sleep too. During the night, they will lay down, but sometimes during the day, they will stand and put their heads halfway down and hold it there, so as to imitate sleep. They should also close their eyes. Animals should also have an energy bar. If the bar gets low, they sleep. Then, if the bar is full, they will run around, and when it is empty, they will walk slowly, and fall asleep often.

    I was thinking about this the other day and I agree.

    You could even add in a gameplay element! For example - animals that are given shelter and regular sleep will yield more resources and/or animals that arne't given sleep will avoid the player or provide less resources.

    This would definitely make things more believable and immersive.
