Sleeping with You
Cats luxuriate in the bliss of sleep, so it’s really no surprise that your feline wishes to share it with you. “Cats show affection by sticking close to their human companions, very often sleeping next to them,” Hovav says. Cats will often find a way to tiptoe into your slumber, curling up among the sheets and blankets, adding her own warmth for cozy comfort. The pleasing weight of a cat nestled at your side may not be a scientifically proven sleep aid, but knowing your cat chooses to share your bed should bring sweet dreams.
Additionally, just as cats choose to sleep with us, they often like to complete the cycle, waking us up first thing in the morning. Though some cats may be nudging their humans to serve breakfast, others simply crave our company to start their day right.
