    Not weird at all. I have two cats myself, and I would love for them to sleep on our bed. The only reason I always keep them out of the bedroom is that last year when they were still kittens one of them seemed to think the bed was a toilet and peed on it about three or four times! So the bedroom is off limits for them unfortunately.

    But I've had friends growing up whose cats slept on their beds with them, and when I was housesitting once I'd often wake up to find the people's cat curled up on my feet or legs... the warm weight is a nice comforting feeling. I don't like dogs on the bed though (mostly I hate the smell), and our dog is an outside dog anyway (German Shepherd).

    It's pretty normal, I'd say. Ever since I was born up until the age of 20 I'd always had a cat and they always slept on the bed with me. I used to have to share my pillow with them! It was nice having them curled up next to me and they made me feel safe. I haven't owned a cat for a few years now and the thought of cat fur all over my bed now as an adult really puts me off, I'd just feel yuck, but I don't see any problem with cats sleeping on the bed if your happy with it.

    If I allowed it, our cat would sleep in our bed. When we first got her (adopted her as an adult ex breeding cat) I allowed her to sleep in the bed. She would make her way into the blankets and demand that I spoon her haha. If I didn't spoon her sufficiently she would bite me not hard or anything but a bit of a warning bite. DS2 was born 5 months after we got her and she was then not allowed in the bedrooms and now thanks to my allergies she remains an outdoor cat- which she is fine with.

    I don't think it's weird. It's not for me, but not weird either IMO!

    Our dog used to sleep on my bed, in the bend behind my knees from when he came home until I moved out with DP. Now he (the dog, not DP) sleeps either on the lounge or with Mum and Dad in their bed .

    I can't sleep with out my cat and she sleeps inside the covers. I sleep on my side and she sleeps on her side with her back to my stomach she then puts her paw on my hand
    Or she sleeps up
    By my pillow and rests her head on it - she is very fond of the memory foam lol .
    She will stay until I fall asleep and then she may go to my feet or on her cat bed in the room.
    If I'm sick she doesn't leave my side and when dh alarm goes off she bites his feet until he gets up if I get up to early she will sit by the bed a meow until you come back

    Both my cats used to be indoor and sleep in my bed. When DH moved in (allergic) they were kicked out I was getting sick of the cat hair and wanted to do it anyway.

    Then when DD was born they pretty much lived outside. Her crying freaked them out so they refused to come in. Now that she is older and they are happy to come in every now and then I don't really like it because she is too rough and I have to watch her the whole time so it's a PITA!

    Cats in the bed NOW grosses me out

    I'd be happy to have all fur babies in the house at all times but I HATE HATE HATE animal hair!!!! Yuck yuck!

    I know heaps of people who let their dogs & cats sleep on their beds. We don't because dogs are pack animals & the leader never sleeps with the rest of the pack, but this is extremely important for us since we've got such big boys & if they didn't see us as pack leaders we'd be in trouble! Dunno about cat mentality though - when I think about it I do think things must get rather stinky with a furbaby sleeping there all the time too.

    I don't like it. My pets all slept indoors before we had kids, but they had their own beds and weren't allowed in the bedrooms.
    Like Jess said, I like my bed to be human scented...clean and fur free is another huge bonus.
