The bond between cat and pet parent is unmistakably special.
It’s one that is based on love, trust, and security.
Although they may not show it all the time, our felines care about us just as much as we do them.
These feelings can manifest themselves in several ways including snuggling up with us at bedtime.
While dogs are the pet many people associate with being bedtime buddies, cats sleeping with their owners is actually a lot more common than you may think.
The main reason your cat may begin sleeping next to you is simply because they feel safe there. Many cats are still driven by their wild instincts, and even though they may now be domesticated creatures of comfort, a feeling of vulnerability can still come over them as they go to sleep.
If that’s the case, there’s no safer place for them to be than next to their pet parent in a big, warm, cosy bed.
