(sigh)...Yes, my furry babies are allowed on the bed. When we purchased our new matress set last year, I was adament that there would be no dogs or cats allowed...that lasted about 3 days

Every night, Kato, Jersey and Abby join hubby and I on the bed, even tho they have their own plush and comfy ones at the foot of our bed.
Jersey squishes in between hubby and I , Abby lays between our feet and Kato lays behind me with his back pressed up against mine.

Once in a blue moon, Thedee and Wendell will climb up there and lay above our heads between our pillows and the wall, they won't lay near the dogs in fear of being squished in a rollover or something.

Thankfully tho, one by one they eventually retire to their own beds, because they get too hot or they realize that they can't stretch out and get comfy in the crowded human bed.

As soon as the alarm goes off and hubby gets up for work, they all stockpile back on the bed around me and go back to sleep

Don't count on the king size bed making any difference!!! That just means more room for the bosses!

Of course Clark sleeps with me he even insists on getting under the covers in the winter. Even Buddy slept with me all 190 pounds of him but he did not cuddle up like Clark. All the dogs I have owned have slept in my bed

Can't sleep without mine on the bed. Not used to having more than 2 square inches of a pillow, lol.

I LOVE Jasper cuddling my head, it is very relaxing and I find I fall asleep instantly when he does it.

Snowball slept beside me at my neck every night from the time he was a kitten until the day he passed. I could not sleep if he was not in bed with me. I would put the blankets over him when it was cold and he loved it. Man, I miss my boy.

We bought a king size and it just meant the cats have more room to stretch out on because I sure don't have any more room.

Some of my dogs sleep with me (or do I sleep with them?) Not every one of them likes to sleep on the bed, and that's probably a good thing considering the number
Here's what it's like with just half of them on the bed:

LOL, it's nice to see how many of us really just don't have any issues sharing our beds with our babies.

It's funny about the size of the bed though. When I had a full size bed, I wanted a bigger bed, because I felt that there wasn't enough room for the gang to spread out, since they would sleep so close to me. So I got a queen size bed, and they still sleep right up against me. That's totally fine with me. I love that they want to be that close to me while they are sleeping.

LOL Jim. I should have explained the water bottle. The water bottle is because, with a toy box full of stuffies, and blankies and rawhides and anything a doggie could want his favorite toy in the whole world is an empty bottle. He loves the crunchy sound they make and the way they bounce unpredictably.

What I should have said is that we don't actually HAVE a bed but Cooper has a nice King sized bed and allows us to have a little corner of it.

They don't all sleep there all night but they do like to cuddle in the morning. They're all large dogs so with dh and me both in bed there's just not room for this many all night but there's always at least one on the bed, often two. And once dh gets up early for work the bed is fair game for as many as can fit to come and snuggle with me.

My cat sleeps with me at night as well. She hogs my bed and the picture on the 1st page is totally my bed at night. My cat is a pretty big cat, for her breed. When she streches out, she takes up half of my bed.

She has this routine though. The first half hour I am in bed, she'll come in and lay right down in front of me. purring away, while giving nose kisses and headbutts. She stays for about 10 mins, then leaves (i think to go eat..she would be happest if she were a 1000 pounds. She would eat all day if she could)

Then I usually fall asleep and when I wake up during the night, she is always snuggled beside.

And I agree. I have always said that one of the best/most soothing sounds on earth is a cats purr.

Bear doesn't come upstairs anymore (hip issues and aging and I miss him coming upstairs ), and he was never allowed on the bed from puppyhood because we knew he was going to be so big.

Then when Molly (or Mollicent as she's affectionately nicknamed) was rescued from such a bad situation that we found she sought comfort from sleeping in a bed, so we tried and tried to break her of it, but to no avail. We too have the extra sheet over the duvet (for droolies), but I mind when she pushes me out of the king size bed with her feet so that she can snuggle up to daddy.
Other issue is the two of them snore like chainsaws....methinks I need good earplugs or something.

I woke up the other day to find the two of them spooning. Damn, I wish I had the camera handy!

great thread!

lol i dunno bout sharing the bed. I mean truly its open invitation but my cats dont seem to think the bed is big enough for all of us . they shove me a bit when they want more room but eventually head for their spots. Truth be told though I have slept on the ground a few times when I found both kitties sprawled out on my bed and not wanting to disturb them u know ure a crazy cat lady when

My 3 cats sleep on the bed unless they start wrestling in the middle of the night...then they have to leave until they run outta energy. Then I let them back in next time I wake up.

When Wilbur is on the bed I don't sleep well as he has been known to bite my feet. So we moved a love seat into our bedroom and he will move over to that during the night

O'Shawnnessey and Mirabelle I don't worry about bitting my feet so I sleep very well with them on the bed. Until they start wrestling of course.

Tegan 70lb lab sleeps on bed err on me during thunderstorms. And we only have a double bed. We need a bigger one! And here isaid I would never let cats on our bed....... HA! That didn't last long.
