They all start out with me and then come and go through the night. I fit myself in wherever I can. :) Mocha usually stays and sleeps in the cat bed on the corner.

I think the more accurate statement is the cats let me sleep with them.

They go through months of being right next to me, then months of being on their tree or beds elsewhere in the room, and weeks of sleeping elsewhere (catio, couch, with others). Rocket tends to be very demanding and want to be right against or on top of me. Link prefers sleeping on my foot or between my ankles.

Kila usually sleeps with me for at least part of the night, especially if I do a rigorous play session with her before bed! Sometimes she starts out by my legs and then I'll wake up to go to the bathroom at 1 or 2 AM and she'll be right next to my face or on my pillow. She really likes it when I hold her all night but the way she wants me to put my arm around her gets kind of tiring. 😅

Isabel isn't a big cuddler. She wants to be petted but that's it.

My tuxedo on the other hand, yeah. He sleeps with me! He curls up either right next to me to be held or between my knees if my legs are bent. He always has to be with me though.

Honestly when he was only a few weeks old, I fell asleep feeding him (it'd been a stressful few weeks with his mother taking off) and I just passed out. He never moved, just stayed snuggled with me. He's been my snuggle buddy ever since.

Depends on the night, but often lately all three sleep with me. I keep the house pretty cold during the winter though to save on electricity bill, 50*, but the bedroom gets colder since the heater is in the next room over. On warmer nights, when no one comes, I call out trying to get someone to come, haha. But it doesn't always work.

Company for an afternoon nap (I was ill and he stayed with me 24/7)


Been with me all night, then when the sun comes up they move to the window to watch outside till I get up


Sometimes the breeze in the window is too cool....I leave an arm out to snuggle up to


My wife, attempting to nap in a recliner..


Hugged like a stuffed animal....

I move around too much at night, so they usually just stay near me. My wife sleeps in one position, so the cats will sleep all over her.


They don't make a sleeping pill with half the strength of a cat's purr: knocks me right out!

Mine do. Waffles however will opt for the basement in the warm weather. In cooler months he's plastered to my middle, I'm a side sleeper. If I turn over, he climbs over me to get to my tummy again. Mooshoo sleeps with me, and if she tries to snuggle at my tummy Waffles won't have it and she has to move. She is plastered to me too. I can't move! Cat sandwich.
Newest one, Gracie, also loves to sleep with me. But, the other 2 aren't to the point of sharing the bed with her so I alternate nights. She gets right up by my face, on the pillow, after spending some time on my hip, and pats me on the face in the night. When she first jumps up on the bed she talks up a storm, telling me all about her day.
It's so comforting.
