    I Didn't Like Cats.....until I Got One.

    I should have called this group "My Cat Sleeps With Me".  Really, she picked me.  She could have her choice of bedtime companions.   We all have our own bedrooms...even my husband and I.  Haley has her own pillow and I put it on her side of the...

    Cat Creeps In & Sleeps

    Really its the other way around. My cat sleeps with me. I prefer her at my feet, but sometimes she likes to lay against my shoulder.

    Our Sleeping Arrangements . . .

    My calico - named The Studio Cat - spends most days in the art studio and every night at the corners of my bed. As she has gotten older, sometimes she disappears under my goose-feather quilt during cold winter weather. The Studio Cat curled up on my feather quilt. . . To wake me...

    It's Nice

    My cat (Stardust) and I have an understanding, once it gets late we both go to bed. She'll usually snuggle up right next to me, although sometimes we'll sleep with our backs towards each other to keep them warm. It's so nice to have a little bed buddy, and its so comforting to...

    Wake Up, Now !

    Sam, my Thai-Ragdoll rescue cat, doesn't usually come to ( my ) bed untill after I've gone to sleep. When he jumps up on the bed, he immediately comes up to my head and getting right in front of my face, starts " talking " to me to wake me up. When he's sure I'm awake, he'll go...

    A Lifetime Of Sylvester

    We've got four cats now.  And there were many before.  Sylvester, a "tuxedo cat," is the oldest.  We don't really know how old he is, since he was grown up when he adopted us at least ten years ago.  We had an outside staircase from the second floor...

    With 5

    Maybe I should say they let me sleep on their bed. Sometimes there is a tussle over who gets the best spot, and my baby girl gets really possessive of sleeping next to me, to the point she will run the other cats off the bed. Bisset, 11 pounds will go after Gar, 17 pounds, run...

    Every night my one cat follows me into the

    bedroom and hops up on the bed next to me. She lies next to me or curled up in the crook of my legs most of the night.

    She Slept With Me Last Night

    My cat came and slept next to me last night - she probably is feeling glad I am home for the weekend. It was very sweet. And now she is asleep on a cushion - she ate the cheese I put out for the birds and has a tummy ache. *sighs indulgently*

    I have a little girl named Bee, well its my cat but I just liked saying she's my little girl. Since my bed is really tall when she was small she had a hard time getting in it but now she's a bit bigger and she jumps on it with no trouble. Its so funny because sometimes she gets...

    When i go to bed one of the two cats that sleeps with me is already waiting next to my pillow. And right when i'm about to pull the blanket over me my other cat jumps up and gets under the blanket with me, lays down and starts purring really loud.

    No, He Sleeps With Me.

    I will be all nice and comfortable in my bed and of course he has to jump up there with me and make me all hot and itchy. He's shedding right now so somehow I end up inhaling all his kitty fur. Also he has this new habit of laying curled around my head and yet still managing to...
