Is everything else ok?
Specifically can you check the colour of the cat's gums. They should be a nice bright pink. Also is the cat's appetite and weight stable?
The reason I ask is that I've seen cats with anemia display excessive sleeping and be hard to wake. However, there's a whole bunch of tests that a veterinary professional can run to ascertain what's going on. Excessive sleeping isn't a disease in itself, but can be indicative of underlying issues like anemia. If everything else is ok, then it's probably just a lazy tomcat but, as always, you should seek definitive advice from professionals you can look in the eye, rather than ones you meet on the internet
