    Before DH and I moved in together, my 2 always slept with me. But like Waterlilly, they got kicked out because of his allergies.

    We had cats as kids and they would always wind up in one of us kids beds. I like it and miss it! Their purring is a lot nicer than DH's snoring!!!!

    Not weird in the slightest.

    I am concerned about all these cats who 'smell' though ... My cat smells like perfume. Seriously. I think it must be something in her saliva when she cleans herself or something. She smells better than I do!

    She sleeps in bed with us. She sits on my bedside table and nudges my head with her paw to let her in. In winter she spoons with me, in summer she lies opposite me with all of her paws touching my belly.

    It is gorgeous I honestly wouldn't have it any other way.

    It gets weird when you get up in the morning to pee, and she meows at your feet until you invite her to sit on your lap mid-flow

    I grew up with my kitty sleeping in the bed (he liked to be tucked in with his head on the pillow!). Now our kitty has the option to sleep on the end of the bed, my DP draws the line at her sleeping in the bed or up around our heads...but if it's just us 2 girls we have a snuggle

    I bath my babies. I then dry them thoroughly. No smelly, wet pets in my bed either.

    I would do whatever makes you feel comfortable, it certainly isnt wrong to sleep with your pets!

    Personally I wouldnt do it with cats. The thought of them ravaging through rubbish bins and dead birds and whatever else they get up to on their travels, then coming into bed with me, kinda makes me feel sick LOL!

    Last night when I went to bed I found our mother cat, her daughter, my 2 yr old, and my 5 yr old all in my bed... The trick is finding enough room for me...

    We have had numerous cats over the years, all bed sharers, is this totally weird??
    She has obviously never had a cat. Imagine trying to tell the boss where he can sleep! Ours also sleeps in our bed.
