My Romeo not only sleeps with me, when it's cold, he sleeps UNDER the covers curled up with me! I'm so used to him being there with me I have a hard time getting to sleep if he's not there. I'm kind of like a kid and he's my teddy bear I need to go to sleep!

My cats sleep with me. My rule is that they sleep at the bottom of the bed. One always has to be right next to me and tries to sneak up on the pillow next to me. Then the other cat gets mad at her and attacks her.

I'm sure my husband intends to kick the cats out of the bed when he gets here. He wants to add a puppy to the mix. The cats used to live with dogs so I think they'd adjust to a puppy. Husband does not know how expensive it is to have a pet though!

We have 4 dogs and they sleep with us. Piglet sleeps on the pillow by Dees head she is a rat terrier. Kiba sleeps at my feet and doesn't want to let Dee into the bed if I'm asleep he is a chihuahua. Bandit sleeps at my side he farts and snores worse than any man he is a pug. Crusoe sleeps at Dee's feet he is a cockapoo. All of the dogs sleep under the cover except for crusoe he has really long hair and prefers to sleep on top of the covers. And of course we have Smoke the siamese cat and she sneaks up into the bed in the middle of the night. They are part of our family.

Any and all pets I have had or will continue to have - have slept with me. I love it and find it to be very comforting, even before I had Jay to sleep with, hehehe!

My cat has slept with me a few times while over at my in-law's. Other than that, he sleeps in the living room. He won't stay still.

I have a Cocker Spaniel. When he was a baby he used to sleep in the bed with my man and I but now he is too too big and his hair sheds uncontrollably so he sleeps in the living room.

My border collie weighs 60 pounds and while he would like to sleep with me he doesn't get to! I'm sure he would be a bed hog!

Well, we have a cat (even though I am NOT a cat person, my kids are.. LOL). Anyway, he is a weird cat (I think). He will sleep with my son one night, then the next he will sleep with my daughter, then the next with me!! IF the kids sleep with me, then the cat sleeps with all of us in my bed

Oh, and get this, when my alarm goes off in the morning, Harley (the cat) will come into my bed (no matter where he is sleeping that night) and lick my face.... EVERY morning when my alarm goes off.

See what I mean when I say he is weird?!? Gosh I love that cat!!

My German Shepherd sleeps at the foot of the bed. My Bengal sleeps against my waist and my rescued kitty sleeps next to my neck.
Sometimes I don't get a good nights sleep. LOL

I have a Jack Russell Terrier, These dogs shed a pound a day it seems so you should see my lint filter when I wash the sheets. I would be lost without my sleeping buddy so I deal with the hair.

I had a rottie mix, a rottie and a little mutt, they all slept with us. Cats too some nights.When we built new house I had an upstairs with a 1/2 door so they couldn't anymore, they got used to it pretty quick, then 2 years ago we got our 1st chihuahua, now we have 3 and they all sleep with us, or on us,the rottie is too damn old to even make it upstairs but she has a nice foam bed .

I have 5 dogs and 4 cats.

The one dog Skye hates being inside so she sleeps outside. If I bring her in she cries. The other 4... well... I look after my mentally challenged brother so one sleeps in his room cause she is totally devoted to him.

The other 3 all have a place on my bed. I have special covers I throw over the unused pillows on my bed and one sleeps there. The other is under the covers curled up next to me and the other is near my feet.

Oh and the cats... they have their own bed in the spare room.

My significant other... I dont have one right now and even if i did... the animals were there first... adjust.

I have two dogs, an Australian Stumpy Tail and a German Shepard. They both sleep with me and since there is no significant other, the arrangment suits all of us just fine. Now, if and when there is a man in my life, well..... they might have to sleep on their doggy beds or maybe we can find one huge bed for all of us to sleep on. lol

I have two dogs, a Yorkie and a Westie, they both sleep with me. Who ever gets on the bed first (usually the Yorkie) sleeps at the top, the other at the bottom

My 11 month old American bulldog sleeps with me, he is the first dog I have ever owned that I let in the bed. He has to sleep right next to me, so no matter where I move he is always touching me- sometimes I like it, most of the time I wake up and am stuck in a corner, curled in a ball- wondering why I let him control the entire queen sized bed.

I've always slept with a dog. LOL My whole childhood and my adulthood. Yep, puppygirl sleeps with me. Cats, when I used to have them, sleep on my bed too. I'm a sucker for animals and I baby them. I have a chihuahua and she has to sleep with me. As a kid I had a german shepard and he slept at the foot of the bed.
