    I’m an idealist and a rather new cat-owner, and I’m so glad to hear I have an ideal relationship with my cat! She is the best. She sleeps with my husband and I every night and walks right up to our faces for extra cuddles and scratching every morning. We love our Princess Penelope 🥰😸

    My cat is fourteen. When we were young, there was a lot of upheaval. I moved twelve times in ten years, and wound up staying on my friends' couches a few times. Through it all, I had my cat. He and I developed a bond of trust, because no matter where we went, we had each other, and only each other. He allows me to lead him away from dangerous situations; though he is scared, he follows. He waits at my door to tell me it's my bedtime, and then waits for me to get under the blankets before snuggling up. He'll leave the warm, sunny spots on the couch for a chance to curl up on my lap. He really is my second half -- my better half. I love him, and I do believe he loves me, too.

    My littlest sleeps with me often. When she was tiny, she slept on my pillow. And yes, I'm allergic, but it's 1000% worth it.

    Once when I was visiting my mother, I showed up late at night and went to sleep in the hammock in the backyard. Woke up in the morning with my old cat sleeping on my chest.

    I just got mine from a rescue foundation and I honestly expected her to just chilling her spot under the bed for a few days but nope, the moment I went to bed on night one she came out and curled up next to my head. Happiest moment of my existence when I realized just how comfy she was around me already

    I can prove the fact that cats will notice your absence.
    My cat comes to sleep with me almost every night. Well I went away for one night, and he went insane! What I heard from my family members still at home, was that he was howling from downstairs, and could be heard running around with anything but cat-like grace. Rather unusual behavior for him.

    I love my cat. He is my shadow. His loud purring puts me to sleep. At first I didnt like him sleeping in my bed and I would put him down, but in the morning he was there next to me. He managed to sneak in and sleep. I finally gave up and he sleeps next to me. He is a good alarm. Any noise, and he is the first up to investigate. 😽

    “My” bed is divided into three territories: Grey sleeps at the end of my bed near my feet, Miss sleeps in the middle of the bed forcing me into odd positions, and every morning I wake up to my girl Moe on my chest aggressively loving on me and pawing at my face until I pet her.

    My cat sleeps beside me when I'm there on the weekend
    (I'm at my mums during the week but at my dad's on the weekend)
    She been pulling out her fur from her back and my dad keeps saying it's fleas but I know it's stress
    Everytime I'm there I always let her sleep next to me and I try to be as quiet as possible and when we both go to sleep, I always play some relaxing music for cats.
    Also, everytime I watch kitten videos she runs up to me and looks at my phone screen with such longing (she was separated from her kittens before we adopted her)
    I was thinking of getting her a kitten to help with her stress, but I'm not too sure, what do you guys think??

    We adopted our black cat Nesquik 12 years ago when he was 4 years old. he sleeps in bed from day 1 and is 99% on my side of the bed and hopefully for many years .. 3 years ago he got cancer of which he is cured. We love him and hope that he can stay with us healthy and happy for many years to come. Greetings from 🐱 Belgium.

I give him anti flea medicine now, but I am about to have my first child, so I still havent let him in to the bedroom because I'm a little scared he might lie down over the babys airways or something in the night.. 😳

    If you have lived with cats you already know these things. Cats only get near people they like and you feel special when they choose you.
    I use to have a cat that would sleep around my head at night. She would purr me to sleep. That is until she went into labor one night and screamed into my ear. She had her kittens someplace else, raised them but never went back to sleeping around my head, just my feet.
