I listen to other pet owners tell stories of their beloved creatures sleeping in the same bed at night and I don’t understand it. I can’t do it. I love both my cats. They are sweet, wonderful, and cuddly. I enjoy a good afternoon nap with them and now that they are almost out of the kitten stage they no longer attack my feet while I sleep. But they do not spend the night in my room.
A few weeks back Kima sat at my door crying two nights in a row till I gave in opened the door and allowed her to sleep on my bed. It was the worst sleep of my life. I tossed and turned all night long. Every time she repositioned herself I woke up and time I needed to change my position I could because she was on my legs. It was horrible. I vowed never again…ha ha ha…you know what they say “never say never.” Last week she hid herself on the shelf above my bed. When I was almost asleep she pounced from the great height onto the bed. I jumped so high with fright then tried to make the journey to dreamland. It was another rough night. If you are a pet owner who shares your bed with a pet, how do you do it?
