If so where does your cat sleep on your bed? The tom cat will sleep at the bottom of my bed by the feet. Socks likes to sleep behind my knees(if I'm on my side), or inbetween my calfs if I'm on my back don't ask me why but I've always been leary that I'd roll over and she wouldn't get out of the way fast enough but she's super fast normally anyways. How bout your kitties?

They come and go, pretty much only Pong, sleeping on top of me now, is the only one who stays in the same place all night. I'd rather have Pong, who is currently only weighing about 9 pounds there rather than Scamp's 15.

My hubby can relate to that we've got one that's about 17lbs and he likes to sleep on my hubby's chest. Poor guy hates it when he does that! He's a great snuggler but man he's too heavy.

that's what she is. surprisingly,she has very even marks for a tortie,not one of those "two face" torties with the one side red and one black.

I dunno I think it gives them a lil more personality. I've got one striped and 2 black (though one has a white patch on her belly) they are all siblings but from different litters.

I don't like for my cats to sleep with me. If I can I try to leave the door shut so they can't get in, but on really hot or really cold days I have to keep my bedroom door open. If they happen to come on the bed after I'm asleep, I don't normally notice, but if they try to sleep too close to me I may end up kicking them off the bed. I hate to share my sleeping space.

The cats don't always bother me as much as my lovely co-sleeping kids do! *LOL* The only one I kick off is Socks if she's in the mood to purr for attention in the middle of the night. Miss Anti Social if she's not sleeping with you is bugging you to pet her wich would be fine if it wasn't in the wee hrs. Unfortunatly I can't just close the doors. In our room the cats will scratch and scratch to get in our room or out of it. That will wake me up and I will not be a happy girl if I"m woken up!

My cats are used to the door being closed, because I've never allowed them in the room. If they were used to it being open every night, then they too would have a problem with me trying to close it. I would never allow my children to sleep in the bed, basically for the same reason, once they get used to it, you'll never get rid of them.

yeah I know I found out the hard way... but as long as I get a decent night sleep I don't care.

I have to ask, doesn't your bed always smell like Cat then? What about when you are sick, do they bother you? I never understood pets sleeping in bed. I've smelled my dogs bed in the past and smelled the couches my friends cats slept on, and I just couldn't imagine my bed smelling like that. Now cat smell is better at least but maybe I just have a real sensitive nose! I like my bed to smell like fresh linens or flowery spray :) So obviously I've never let pets sleep in my bed, so I just have questions!

I don't know that I notice them as much as I notice hubby's smells. THough my nose isn't as sensitive as yours. I know dogs plain stink that's why mine isn't allowed on the furniture or a bed to say the least. And the only time the cats have ever stunk is if they just did their business and then want to nuzzle you, then I shoo them away.

Yeah dogs do stink! That's why I can't imagine letting one in my bed like others do. Our dog wasn't even allowed in the living room, but he had the kitchen and basement to roam. After my dog passed away, we never got a new dog. So years later I went to someone's house who had a few dogs and noticed the smell right away. I think we had gotten used to our dog's smell over time, but once it is gone you start to notice everyone else's pets! At least cat's clean themselves :) Thanks for answering my question, I was just curious!!

My dad gets angry my our cat try to sleep in our bed, but sometimes I let our cat to sleep in my lap. It also makes me relax when I play with my cat.

On my part my mom and my dad gets mad and scold me if our cat will sleep in my bed. Even though i keep it in my room, there are times that my pal will roam inside our house and worst is that it prefers to watch in my parents room. I had no choice but to leave it outside our house and my poor pal will just sleep on the filthy mat. Its so sad.

I've got four, and at least three of them will sleep on the bed. They have different places on the bed, but they quite often like to lie up against me - for the warmth I suppose. So I'm likely to find myself wedged in with one or two cats wedged against me on either side. If I need to get up in the night to go to the toilet, I always have to check where the cats are before I actually move. There's usually one that needs to move so that I can get out of bed. After I get back in, the cat that had to move just hops back up to lie down in the same place and then we all go back to sleep again.

Socks will move back into her spot as well if you have to get up or roll over. The big guy will just stay put unless you have to move him for any reason but he won't always come back. The lil one doesn't usually cuddle with anyone at all.

Hello 3snugglebunnies. Our cat hershey, used to sleep in my room,but now she doesnt because she's already pregnant. When she does sleep in my room she sleeps inbetween my legs or just recently beside my pillow. Wherever I turn, she also turns.

Glad to hear my Socks isn't the only one who sleeps like that inbetween a persons legs. However when I turn she usually takes off but will return shortly to snuggle behind me knees if I went to lay on my side.

Yes she does, I like her because she's really brat but so sweet. Oftentimes, she really wanted to sleep beside me or on top of me for example in my chest or tummy but I reject her when she does because she's a bit heavy that's why I can't afford to let her sleep in my chest of tummy instead I transfer her near my pillow or right beside me.

yep my big guy is way too too big to have sleep on a person, so I can understand. But if he's not on your chest he won't sleep anywhere but in a roomy spot by your feet.

When I was a kid, my cat meow-meow slept with me. Today, my cats Smokey and Snowball do not. Mainly because Smokey is an exploring cat. If I'm under the covers, she will come try to find me in the bed.

Yeah I hate being pestered when you are actually trying to sleep, watching tv is one thing but actual sleep is another.

My cat comes to my room nearly every night. He usually likes to sleep one my bed, near the far end so he ws loks of streching space, but sometimes he likes to come curls up against my back or chest.

Sounds like my big guy when he sleeps he either wants his own space or wants to crush you! *LOL*

I can't have cats but my two dogs sleep with me. Cookie is like a little heater and a real asset in the winter. Gus is a bed hog and really hard to move out of the way if I need to! But I enjoy the comradeship and they are so sweet when they snuggle up with me. While Cookie likes to sleep in the crook of my knees under the covers, Gus likes to "spoon" with his head peeking out of the covers.

That's for sure a dog would definatly keep you warm in the winter moreso than a cat.

My new kittens are the only ones that sleep with me. (They are the only cats that really like me.) Starbuck, is like the neediest kitten ever! She climbed out of the box she was sleeping in middle of the night, and then she climbed up onto me, and curled around my neck. It's truly funny. My other kitten, Spooky is much more independent, but she still works her way next to/on me. XD
