Me and my husband sleep with our cat. He takes turns on both sides of the bed but he usually stays at our feet. When I slept with my dog, she’s be on one side and I’d wake up in the middle of the night and I’m on the side of the bed and she’s all curled up in the middle lol.

We have two cats now, one sleeps with us every night either by my feet or on my husband’s chest or side. The other kitty occasionally sleeps with us and only ever by our feet. She prefers the cat bed we have on the dresser next to the bed. 

My previous kitty (RIP) would sleep in the nook of my arm, tummy, or legs. He was the best cuddle partner. 

Pics cuz cats are the best.

Love sleeping with my cats! Husband and I have 3 cats. The oldest one (about 8, male) sleeps on either one of our pillows every night, he’s really snuggly. We also have a 7 month kitten who eventually makes her way into the bed to snuggle. She will lie on top of us or will literally spoon with us. Our 1 1/2 year old (male) sleeps on the bathmat in the bathroom…he’s very sweet but not super snuggly. They give me comfort, especially when hubby is working late.

SHARE the bed?! I’m lucky if there’s even space for me to join them in the bed LOL!

I love it though. Our kitty (Smudge) snuggles under the blanket next to my tummy in winter – only next to me, not my husband lol – I think this is because he runs so much hotter than I do, and it would be too hot for her to be curled up next to me. And in the warmer months, she tends to sleep on my husband’s hip/thigh (he is a side sleeper).

She’s our baby <3 I have often slept in an uncomfortable position because I feel too bad to move her lol.

One of our cats sleeps with us, always snuggled in between my husbands legs.  He’s a trooper.  I have no complaints since this doesn’t impact me in any way.  My husband doesn’t mind being pinned down, but has reported violently awakening in the middle of the night when the cat jumped on his chest lol (more than once).

I prefer my cat to sleep on the bed, but she has several spots that she likes. Usually she is under the bench at the end of our bed (“her house” lol), but she rotates between there and in between me and my SO (at the end). She seems to choose a location for a few weeks and then moves on. My favorite is when she sleeps on me though! I will wake up and she’s on my head or she comes in the morning!

If she’s in the bed before SO comes up, he knows he shouldn’t dare compromise her staying by disturbing her 😂 He gets shoved to the side to accommodate often lol

My dog moves a lot at night to get comfortable and wake me up or else I wouldn’t mind sleeping with him. Other problem is that he considers the pillow on the other side of the bed “his pillow” and refuses to move when the boyfriend sleeps over so it ends with the dog literally sleeping on my boyfriend’s head out of spite.

The only time I’ve slept with cats is when I housesat for my sister who has three. The kitten bit my toes half the night and the adults would lay down for .2 seconds and then get bored and leave. Her dog is literally the best cuddler in the world but dear god does he stink. The cuddles are still worth it, though.
