We have 2 cats. They are usually free to sleep with us if they want. Sometimes they sleep with us, sometimes with DS. They are clean and generally do not bother us (except for now because my male cat has gone a little cray cray in this pregnancy as is obsessed with me).

Cats in our beds, dogs occasionally in our beds but generally in lounge room. They are clean, vaccinated and part of the family. I have never had an animal that sleeps outside apart from a rabbit when I was young.

No way! My dog is inside whenever we are but goes out at night.

2 dogs sleep in the garage on their futon
2 cats (DP's) sleep inside. Roam the house, jump on and off the bed. Make a god damn racket and wake me up every night. And I have to worst insomnia and can't sleep. Let alone get back to sleep after they've woken me up!
I hate it! It's a contentious subject in our house at the moment!
Due in 5 weeks and I don't want the cats in our room/nursery at all!

Do you sleep with your dog/cat? why or why not?
My cat yes, he sleeps on ours or the kids beds. Why, he has no smell, makes no noise, and takes up a small amount of room.
Dog, no way, she sleeps outside. Why, she smells doggy, she pants, is too big and just....she eats other dogs poo, dogs are grotty, not for human beds in my house.

I have never had inside pets until the last few years and I am 36. I HATE dog hair, stink and worried about dog attacks, but wanted an inside dog and finally found a gorgeous little cavoodle to adopt. She doesn't shed, is great with kids, fully vaccinated, regularly groomed and thinks she is a human. She sleeps on the bed (at our feet) and will occaisionally sleep under the cot with ds1(11months) , or on the bed with dd1 (8yrs) or dd2 (3yrs). I was initially of the thought it was gross, but we keep her clean and she really is a part of our family now. She cries if we leave her outside and I just cant do it. She is a beautiful dog. She snores, but no more than DH. He hates the fact I love her so much and let her on our bed - but I say "LOVE ME, LOVE MY DOG!" so he has to suck it up a bit, she has been the cause of some arguments along the way! 😅 she is fed outside and if she needs to pee or pooh, will sit at the door and whine until she is let out to do her business - she is "self taught" and seriously the most awesome dog I have ever had! We keep her fairly short and feed her well so there aren't many occasions where we have dags - but if we see them, they are dealt with pretty quick.
Edit: she is only 6kg so fairly small too

Our cat sleeps in the loungeroom and one dog sleeps on her dog bed next to dh side of the bed and our other dog sleeps on the end of our bed. We used to let the other dog sleep with us, but when we discovered that female dogs get periods we kicked her off the bed and she hasn't slept with us since even though she's been desexed.

Cat sleeps in the living room but will come in our room occasionally. Dog sleeps in our room in her bed on the floor. I used to sleep with my old cat when I was little and I slept with our old dog before he passed but I just don't have the same relationship with our new one.

Nope. I would never let our dogs anywhere near my bed. The smell, the noise and the hair would drive me absolutely nuts. My bed is a nice clean place (well as clean as it can be with DH in there, and my DDs sometimes too).

No way! It's bad enough sharing the bed with my DH let alone the dog
