Should Your Cat Sleep With You?

Have you as a cat owner, ever wondered how other cat owners feel about the question:

Do you let your cats sleep with you at night?”

Well, we have the answer for you. The Purrington Post (@purringtonpost) decided to run a quick 24-hour survey on Twitter feed and here’s what they find out.

Out of nearly 300 responses, the majority of 88% answered ‘Yes’. So, obviously, we have to take that as an overwhelming majority!

What is even more interesting is the fact that most people want to know if it is healthy and advisable for people to let their cats sleep with them. And another thing that most people are interested in is whether it’s beneficial for the cats themselves. So, in order to answer these questions, a cat expert Dr. Lynn Bahr was contacted. And this is what she said:

From a cat’s point of view, it’s completely natural to sleep with loved ones. During the first few weeks of their lives, kittens stay tightly knitted together for warmth, security, and safety. For many, it is a habit they retain into adulthood choosing to curl up next to their owners for the same companionship and comfort they had when they were young. Not only is sleeping with a cat good for humans, it is particularly good for the health and well-being of the cat too.”

So, the conclusion is that sleeping together with our furry babies is not only beneficial but advisable as well as for us and for them! The majority of people that already voted know that sleeping with cats is certainly calming, releases stress and it helps to bond with our cats as well.

Also, it may be quite challenging to share your bed with your kitty… Especially if you need a good night sleep. But no matter what, it is totally worth it!

So, do you let your cats sleep with you?
