I would be more than happy to let Bigguy sleep with me in my bed but he's just not up for that yet but I'm hoping one of these days he will be. He's a lot happier being under it than on it....except when I'm in another room THEN he gets on top of the bed! Do you let your pets sleep with you? Do they have a special place on the bed or sleep wherever they land?

Omg, I tried letting my pet sleep with my husband and I a few times when we first got him (a kitten) he was so annoying! I couldnt take it. I wanted to sleep and he would literaly come up and sleep on our heads! I got so mad. lol. my husband didnt mind, he just layed there. but I couldnt take it so I said no more pets in the bed. OH,and then, in the middle of the night EVERY NIGHT, our cat would get up and start jumping on shelves and knocking everything down and start playing with it, and it would wake me up every time. so now we have to lock him up at night in the back hallway.. - My husband even got fed up with him making so much noise at night.

I just went to the humane society yesterday and got a 3 month old kitten. She slept with us part of the night and slept under the bed part of the night. I have no problem with her sleeping in bed if it makes her comfortable and makes her feel like part of the family.

I'm still thinking about getting another cat or kitten to keep Bigguy company. I think he needs something more in his life than just me...

I have it on my mind to go get one of her sisters kittens! There was 3 kittens but I could not take them all. Frisky is a great little kitten really playful and hardly cries.

Nope my hounds aren't allowed in the bedroom. They have the run of most of the rest of the house so it's kept dog proof but the bedrooms are off limits.

My cat Squirt sleeps with me every night. I'm so used to him being there I have to get up and go get him if he doesn't get in bed with me as soon as I lie down. He just plops anywhere and that's where he stays - and it's up to ME to not be in HIS way...lol! Annie

No I dont but my auntie and cousin loves to have the dogs with them. They are allowed to sleep in the bed with them. I just don't like it since they have their special place in the house for them to sleep on. Their hair tickles me and they do lick that's why! lolz!

well, the dogs are kicked out at night, but while they are in they lay either right in front of the sofa, or the computer. the cat isn't let into the bedroom due to allergies, but if I fal asleep on the couch he is right on top of me!

Yes My cat sleeps with me. He has different three different spots on the bed to sleep on. By my feet, my head or by the wall. The only thing I do not like about it is that I have to wash my bed clothes more often but that is really not a big deal, I will do it for him. I love having him sleep with me, sometimes he is so cute sleeping by me. I have actually had him put a paw on my forehead while we are going to sleep. So yes my cat does sleep with me.

Our two mini daschunds sleep with us. They both sleep between the sheets. One is usually down by my lower legs and the other likes to sleep right next to my husband. She actually sleeps in the bed more like a human cause she is almost on the pillow.

My dogs are too big to sleep on my bed and they couldnt get up on it anyway since its a bit high but my youngest kitty sleeps on my bed in fact every night she has a routine where if I'm not up in bed by a certain time she basically comes down to get me from the living room LOL its pretty cute actually...Sometimes Bobby (my "teen" cat) sleeps on my bed too but the two older cats dont..Maggie sleeps in the living room and Beast sleeps with the kids....As for the dogs, my female dog sleeps on the sofa and my male dog either sleeps in the hallway in front of the kids room or on my meditation pillow in my room LOL

right now all we have is fish so that would be a no. our dog didn't sleep with us because she was to big and a bed hog. she couldn't sleep with the kids either because she would push them out and wake them up. we did have a cat that used to sleep with is and i loved it. she would get under the covers between my husband and me and curl up and purr. if i could have a cat i would but think my oldest would get it to sleep with him.lol

Both the dogs and the cats usually sleep with me. If they can put their butt somewhere they will. Usually after the dogs and the cats all get in there there is pretty much no room for anything else. I have no problem with them sleeping with me at all. I don't mind it. It's kinda nice to have somebody to sleep with when my fiance isn't there. We have a huge dog which is a husky/wolf. Yes it's mixed with a wolf. This dog is massaive so it's nice when he has his head on his pillow (usually where the fiance sleeps) and I can put my arm around him. He loves as he will nestle his head up under my chin.

Our dog slept with us until she was too old to jump up in to the bed, then we took in a stray cat who was quite old and he slept with us. We pet sat for my brother in law over the weekend and his dog slept with us. They are so lovely and cuddly.

You bet Morgana does. She would be so ticked off if I didn't let her. Alot of times she will come and start nipping my ankles when it is close to bedtime. I willingly go b/c it is easier than getting bit LOL **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

We hae a fairly big dog (border collie mix) and a cat. The cat sleeps in our bed with us (there is room for the cat) and the dog sometimes sleeps on the floor in the bedroom, or anywhere else she wants to. the dog is s little too big to share the bed with (either that, or the bed is too small). LOL

I'd let my dog sleep with me, if she didn't sleep with my mum, but my cats get a bit too affectionate lol. (suckling is not nice in the middle of the night)

I don't have any pets currently but I'd be more than happy to let a dog or cat sleep with me. My old dog used to sleep in my bed all the time.

my pet, UNO sleeps with me. His a miniature pinscher! Actually he doesn't sleep on the bed if I'm not around. He usually sleeps on our sofa. But when it's time for me to sleep, he jumps directly on my bed. =p his special spot? well, wherever I am. He wanted to sleep beside me. Like we are really compressed. He loves snuggling and blanket sharing! OMG! i wanted to sleep now! haha
