    My cat is my little companion. She sleeps on my chest every night. I love feeling her purring lol. Unfortunately she has congestive heart failure and the vet said she only has max 2 years to live. She's responding really well to the medication so far so I'm hopeful she will beat that.

    We use to have two boy cats who adored me and never left my side. Now we have two girl cats and they adore my husband and never leave his side. Payback's a bitch.

    My cat starts out on my chest side but eventually, I roll over. When I do, she stays on my back and slides down between my back and my sleeping pillow. She stretches out (cat spaghettification!) enormously and totally zonks out. My cat weighs 12 lbs. I weigh about 18 times her weight. That's like me sliding in next to a baluga whale! She trusts me and sleeps with me in winter when its cold or in summer when the AC is wailing. I'll miss her when she is gone.

    There was a little kitten that came to my back deck, Sunday October 27th of 16. He and mg little Sheltie Collie becsme the very best of friends, however, this little guy always followed me around and slept with me by my feet in my bed. Sad to say, let him out in June of this year, 18, and never saw him ever again. I miss him very, very much. He put a dent into my heart.

    Whenever I'm in a lot of pain my Micah will curl up right against me. The heat from him helps a lot.
    They also absolutely love my plushie blankets too. Both will sit there kneading my plushie blankets. Or will curl up in them like a nest.

    I have 5 cats all who follow me everywhere I move around my house. One cat in particular sleeps right next to me every night. He is territorial and will not allow the others next to me. He really is king of our house. The others are okay at the end of the bed but only he can lay right next to me.

    Often I go to bed before my cat is ready to turn in for the night but she will jump onto the bed, get very close to me and do all the nice loving cat things. Then when she determines that I am settled in, safe and ready to sleep, she jumps off the bed so she can stay up a while longer. Later she returns and is there to purr me awake in the morning. I believe that she honestly cares about me. It is so wonderful to have such relationship with her.

    My cat, Renegade Houdini, sleeps with me to make sure she can keep an eye on my whereabouts. She is so attached to me that whenever I leave for the day or the weekend, she acts lost and cries in every room in search for me. this makes it sad for me to leave. When I return, it is like a puppy dog welcome as she gets in my lap and starts licking me. I think she has reactive attachment.

    This is what I love about internet science! First of all you have no idea, the best you can do is an educated guess. Or you found a speaking cat somewhere. So someone who had nothing to do, started guessing about why cats sleep with us. You guys found it laying around somewhere and decided to make a video about it. Do you have any idea about how wrong you can be, and how annoying is the internet becoming since everybody is trying to make some money with the "10 best of this" and "5 reasons why that"??
    P.S. Accidentally heard the first one. And No! it's not true! My cat sleeps with me even during summer!
