Having a warm, purring cat or two in bed with you is calming and a stress releaser. It promotes bonding with your pets and can help you fall asleep. Cats don’t take up any more room than a small dog. And although they aren’t as good as dogs at raising the alarm when something’s wrong, cats have been known to wake up their people when they smell smoke.
There are several specific benefits to sharing the bed with our favorite felines. From staying warm to feeling safe. Unless you have allergies or a compromised immune system, there’s every reason to keep kitty cuddled up in bed with you. Here are 5 reasons that sharing your bed with your cat is totally awesome.
1. They’re like fluffy little heaters.
Who needs a hot water bottle when you have a cuddly kitty to curl up with?
2. They give you peace of mind.
You know that your super-sensitive feline will alarm you to any nocturnal sights, smells, or sounds that seem out of the ordinary. She’s like your real-life burglar/fire/ghost(!) detector.
3. They’re a great source of emotional healing.
Kitty therapy, anyone? You may not have a registered service cat, but he’s certainly therapeutic for you. Any time you’re with your him, you’re automatically more calm, relaxed, and happy. What a great way to drift off into dreamland!
4. Plus, your cat loves to snuggle, too!
You’re not the only one who enjoys this cozy sleeping arrangement!
5. It’s the best way to wake up.
When the sweet whiskered face of your favorite kitty is the first thing you see in the morning (and her soft fur is the first thing you touch!), there is simply no better way to start the day. Now you can both put your best paw forward!
