since I'm usually asleep I don't always notice this but my fiance has mentioned it and many times during the night I have woken up and saw this. Apparently when I sleep my cats perch themselves on either the dresser infront of the bed or at the foot of the bed and just stare at me as I sleep. My sister also has this problem and it freaked her husband out so badly that he has to remove the cat from the room. Keep in mind both mine and my sisters cats are very sweet and attached to us and all 4 of them were rescue cats. In fact my sister has moo's brother! and our other cats have lot in common such as being found outside after being hit by cars. so should I be worried by my cats staring at night? I can't decided if they are just being protective of me (they HATE fiance) or they are just waiting for food and the minute I move or wake up they come over and hop on me.
