    I think they are competing a bit for my affection, plus everything in the video. They also love to bring theirs toys into my bed- maybe they think I should be up all night playing? In winter, I appreciate my 3 vibrating space heaters. Saves on my electric bills!

    I grew up with dogs and thought I hated cats. Until I found a kitten in the garage and decided to “nurse him back to health”. Omg... I am so in LOVE with this wonderful, amazing, purring, rolling, pawing, licking, curious, timid, brave, crouching, jumping, running, climbing, scratching, head-butting, incessantly meowing ball of Adorableness!! Ha ha ha!! He sleeps in my bed and gently pats my cheek every morning to wake up. I’ve needed a cat for so long and didn’t even know it. Where has he been all my life and how lucky am I to find him all alone in the garage?! 🥰

    We have two big cats, I've built them two cat condo over the stairs. But they like to sleep in our bedrooms daytime. Sometimes also coming at night and finding cozy place in our big bed. When my wife leaving for work I find frequently one of them sleeping next to me, face to face with head on my wife pillow.

    I have a cat that seems to like to sleep near my head. I always chalked it up to their natural sympayhetic/psychic connection with their owners and also senses my dreaming while I am asleep.

    When adopting our two cats. One of the questions on the paperwork was. Where would you let your cat/s sleep? What a stupid arse comment. They have about 5/6 different spots in each room. But unfortunately for one of my cats. He doesn’t like to sleep next to me. He likes to sleep on me. Have multiple times woke up hanging off the edge of the bed and he’s all spawned out with all the duvet fast asleep. Hell I want to be a cat when I go and in a loving home like mine. What a life to live lol.

    Definitely look to us for security. My cat was out one night. I could hear him howling at another tom. I went out to make sure he was ok. The look he gave me was "sweet! Here comes the cavalry, let's smash this bitch!" He got all brave and chased off the other cat then came in for a fuss. Miss that cat.

    I picked out a beautiful calico in a shelter who already had a family looking to take her in. Figured that was a pipe dream but she fell asleep in my arms when they let me pet her. Got a call a few days later; the cat was sick and the previous claim was canceled. The shelter was willing to let me take her and give me medicine, but they wouldn't give her meds themselves. I didn't have anything ready, had never had a cat before. Drove down to the shelter, got the cat, went to a pet store, my brother helped me work through a checklist, got her home. That night she curled up on my chest and went to sleep. Any time we're somewhere new, like a hotel room, she climbs on me to go to sleep.
    The on normal? She climbs on my pillow and shoves her back into my face. Then a few minutes later she wanders off to make noise and drive me insane.

    I haven't got a cat but by my neighbour has. Her cat comes over for a visit almost daily and it is such a lovely ritual. He spends a few minutes or sometimes a few hours with me and quite often I'll find him asleep on a chair or even on my bed! Even though I'm not his rightful owner, he has adopted me as the next best thing LOL!🐭🐭

    I used to have 3 cats and now I have 2 but soon we are giving 1 away. We have to give 1 of my cats away since we are moving soon and she lives in our basement because that’s where she’s always been and wants to be. So we will only have 1 cat left. He is 4 years old and he is the cutest thing on earth. Oh right, my other cat died... he was very old. He was 17 years old.. he’s in a good place now though... he really is.... Anyways, back to my 4 year old cat. He litterally sleeps on me EVERY NIGHT! He purrs and purrs all night long. He is my best friend and will always be... even when it ends... I’m not exited for this day to come... I’m just never going to think about it and hopefully he won’t pass for along time until I do.".................... love you Oliver and Dogey and Shaggy! 😘😘😘

    Everyone has such lovely stories about their cat sleeping with them, but my cat doesn’t like my room for whatever reason, and if she does stay she most likely won’t even sleep with me but on the floor somewhere. Then at about 4/5 am, she’ll wake up and start meowing.
