    Default Cat in the bed - is this wrong?

    Well, I met up with a friend today and we got to discussing sleep. She made mention of the fact that my DS is a great sleeper and I said something along the lines of 'yes but the damn cat keeps me awake some nights'. She was horrified, and I mean horrified that our cat sleeps on (and most night in) our bed.

    We have had numerous cats over the years, all bed sharers, is this totally weird??

    don't think its weird at all and I have the same problem sometimes it's the cat that wakes me some nights it's the dog lol
    As I write this I have a snoring dog and cat fast asleep on my bed

    Our animals have always been an always will be part of our family .. I wouldn't let my kids sleep outside so why should my fur kids

    Hmm, I know people can be funny about dogs in the bed, but most people I have come accross expect that a cat will be in a bed, and only take issue with a cat in the room with a baby under 2. I just looked in my room to find a child, a cat, and a dog all on my bed. Not sure where I fit in considering the various positions they are in.

    Nope i dont think its weird. I actually think it cam be comforting to have an animal share your bed.

    When.our dog stays over, she is up sharing my pillow so between her and coop i may as well sleep elsewhere as they are bed hogs

    ive had cats my whole life and all my cats have always slept on the bed... for me its very normal.

    up until i was about 8 months pregnant, our dog (a 40kg Hungarian vizsla) slept on our bed!! he was evicted though because he was the biggest bed hog (and had to be under the covers with his head on a pillow) LOL

    Its not for me. I don't mind an animal in the same room but sharing a bed grosses me out a bit. Doesn't bother me if other people do it but I won't ever - i like my bed human scented!

    My cats sleep on my bed whenever they want...same with DS bed. In fact our kitten (now 5months old) goes crazy meowing when DS isnt home and in his bed at night. The kitten doesnt know where to go for a snuggle Lol

    I'm with you Jess. Although I hide behind my allergies, I'm allergic to animal fur, so our dog stays outside. My mum sleeps with her 3 old doggies, I think it's gross but she loves them!
