Cat Bed or Your Bed: Infographic

Truffles is the very first cat I've had who has wanted to sleep in bed with me every single night. I'm a total night owl and she's typically ready for bed far earlier than I am. Usually she stays with me until around 4 AM, at which time she gets up for a snack and to use the little girl's room, then comes back and spends the rest of the night in her cat bed on my bookcase to look out the window.


Terrys Fabrics recently sent me a really cute infographic that details the pitfalls we all face while sharing our beds with cats. Personally, I find Truffles to be the purr-fect bedmate. The only situation shown that I can identify with is #8. She usually starts the night settled into a little cocoon between my legs, and then eventually makes her way up onto my chest, but I don't find it bothersome at all. I love that she wants to be that close to me.

What are the feline sleeping arrangements at your house?

  3. Carmine likes to get on my bed at random times while I sleep and meow at me constantly until I pet him. Then he usually settles down on the bed or gets down again. Lita sleeps with me sometimes.

  4. I refuse to stop snuggling throughout the night, so I have been relegated to sleepingin the living room. alone. Only Niles gets to share MomFOD's pilllow. I'm pretty sure he pays her off. - Crepes.

  5. I loved it! So true...Maisie used to wake me up to get under the covers..but she had the silkiest hair and it was well worth the trouble! what could be happier than the face of a sleeping cat?

  7. I'm glad that Truffles gives you good cuddling! I find that it actually helps me to sleep when my kitties are in bed with me. Kitties do have some funny things they do in bed.

  9. That infographic sure is right! I (Lola) always use Mommy as a mattress. And there are sometimes some 2:00 AM shenanigans going on!
    Love,
    Lola and Lexy

  11. Doesn’t sound like that person likes cats. I’ve always slept with TW BECAUSE she has asthma. MOL! I sleep on the pillow next to her too. Sometimes I’ll sleep with Pop. Nicky used to sleep on her legs.

  12. I never get a good night's sleep, but I prefer it that way than not sleeping with my kitties.

  13. Well, all 6 of us sleep together ever night and Marty is the easiest one to sleep with. He sleeps anywhere around my legs he can. Ralphie lays somewhere near/on my head. The Puffs cuddle up to my back/under my right arm. and Mazie pretty much shoves me to the edge of the bed or lays on top of me until she gets to hot :)

  14. this made me laugh SO hard! especially The 2am Cat Fight! After we get Bella (the 60pd pitiful) & hercules (the 8 pd Chihuahua) settled, Bruiser the almost 15 pd, former alley cat, aging alpha male, wants his specific spot, the Harry the cuddly orange kitty wants to lay on your chest, then Mitsy the newbie a kitten about 6 months old wants to sit on your pillow and loudly lick herself before falling asleep inches from your ears. she'll use your head and shoulders to prop her limbs up on to get better access while licking herself. then she wants to jump on the older sleeping cats to play, then the dogs start barking. By now an hour has passed and we make them all leave. when we are deep asleep they push the door open and it starts all over again.

  15. My cats and dogs over the years have all slept in the bed with me. My two current cats Nutmeg and Cozmo don't sleep on the bed with me and it upsets me, but they do their own thing and sleep where they want to. Cozmo does sit on my lap when I'm trying to read though.... :)
