How do I get my cat to sleep with me at night?
I bring my cats to bed with me every night and give them tons of affection till they fall asleep on me. After a while it became like an automatic thing. My cats know when I’m getting ready for bed. When they see me checking the locks on the door and turning the lights out and plug my phone in my room they all run and jump on my bed and start hounding me for affection. Just be persistent with it. They will know it’s a little one on one time with you. Rub under their chins and belly rubs until they’re purring away. My youngest kitten is obsessed with super soft fuzzy pillows. So everynight when he goes to bed he gets Gizmos favorite fuzzy soft pillows and puts them on his bed around him she follows him right into his bed and she kneels the pillows till she falls asleep with him. If there’s something they like to sleep on put it on the bed. You can even start with bringing a few treats with you and give them to the cats so they know bedtime I’m getting treats! One of my cats if you pick him up and bring him to bed he will walk away and if u call him he comes right back and snuggles it’s almost like it has to be because he came to me on his terms and not because I brought him with me..lol.. cats are very smart and will become used to it. My oldest cat I got he was very young like a few weeks old we had to bottle feed him he was severely neglected and infested with everything. He had to get shots for tapeworm and treatments for round worms and in this time he slept in the bathroom. As soon as that was over we would bring him into my bed everynight and everynight at bedtime he knew it was bedtime. Sometimes if he got restless and would start being crazy at night I would say “KitKat go to bed” and he would lay right back down and go to sleep..my husband would be like did u really just send the cat to bed?? And he listened to you? How does that happen?! It would blow his mind.
Can my ferret sleep with me at night?
It is possible and i know people that do. Many people say it is dangerous (for the Ferret) as ferrets can get into a deep sleep, some call the death sleep as it seems like they are dead, and if you roll over on it it will not move. As someone else said ferrets have very small short digestive systems and usually do not go more than four hours without eating, drinking, and using the potty. Though ferrets can be litter box trained a ferret will not go far out of it's way to use the box like a cat, it will use the nearest corner so if it can not get off the bed or there is not a box near enough you could end up with a mess. Ferrets are NOT nocturnal. They are most active at dawn and dusk ( I forget what that is called but it has a name) though they can and do adjust their pattern to yours. They still need to get up to eat, drink, and potty every few hours. Also, yes ferret are burrowing animals however there has never been a person found dead with a hole in his chest or any other orifice with a ferret hanging out. If there is a story of such it is a urban myth. Look it up on snopes or whatever that web site is. I do not personally recommend you sleep with your ferret but like I said i know people who do. If you do do not expect to find it in bed with you in the morning. Also as someone else said I would make sure if could not get out of the bedroom and ferret proof the bedroom or you will need to ferret proof your whole house. Even something as simple as the ferret getting into the drawr next to the dishwasher or stove and you use these appliances, the heat could kill it, or it could climb into the laundry and not wake up when you load and turn on the washer, or it could climb into the workings of the recliner and be crushed or cut in half when the recliner is reclined not knowing the ferret is there, the ferret could crawl into a rug or a blanket left on the floor or the seat cushion or pillow on the couch and be sat or stepped on. These are a few things that have happened to ferrets that i know of, please please ferret proof.
Why does my cat sleep next to me every night?
Your cat prefers to sleep with you, rather than in her own bed. That's a compliment. It's up to you whether you want to allow it to happen, and a lot of people do. The only drawback is that your bed will accumulate cat hair. But personally, I would say that's a small price to pay to cuddle with your friend all night.
Do you sleep with your cats?
No, never, and I’ll tell you why…When I was 19 and newly out on my own I found a kitten. She was too young to be without her mother, but she was. She was so tiny and adorable- all black with the most striking eyes. I named her November, after the month I found her. She could crawl all the way up to my shoulder without me even knowing it, she was so light.I took her to the vet, who advised me to feed her soft food. Everyone at the vet’s office was doting on her, and feeding her these soft treats. She probably ate 5 or 6 of them before the staff all left us alone in the room. Within the next 20 or so seconds she started to choke. The treats were bubbling out of her little nose and she couldn’t breathe. I rushed out the door, screaming for one of them to help, that she was choking.They rushed in and grabbed her before running her to the back. I could hear the panicked but hushed voices trying to revive her. After what felt like an eternity they brought her back to me, ALIVE. I was so relieved. November would be just fine.I brought her home and made her a cute little bed on the floor near my bed. I am a very hard sleeper, so I made sure she knew where the litter box was just in case she needed to go. She’d already used it once, so she seemed good to go in that department.When I woke up in the morning, I sat up and didn’t see her in her bed. I glanced all around but she was nowhere to be seen. I got up and checked under the bed, but when I stood back up I saw my worst nightmare.During the night she must have crawled up to snuggle with me. I had rolled over and she had suffocated under me. Her tiny body was stretched out, as if she’d tried to escape. She was still warm, but I realized soon that it was only my body heat.I had a full out panic attack, and had to call out of work. It was devastating. It’s something I’ve carried with me ever since.THAT’S why I won’t let my cat sleep with me.I know my new boy, Sinbad, is fully grown now, and the chances are so slim of it happening again, but I would never forgive myself if it did.Better safe than sorry.
Step daughter sleeping in our bed?
At first I was thinking.... It's only once a month? Is it that big of a bother if she only comes once a month? But then I thought, it's only once a month! Why cant she sleep in her own bed? For one night? Have you two tried having a talk with her....together. Not just you! He needs to be in on this too. She is definately old enough to sleep alone in her own bed. Try tucking her in and reading her a story before she goes to sleep, make sure she has used the restroom and is all ready to settle down to sleep. Tell her this is her big girl bed, and that big girls sleep by themselves because they're all grown up. She might feel scared because it isnt her house and she wants to be comforted by sleeping with her dad. Try giving her a stuffed animal that she likes, or buy her a new one and tell her this is her night time cuddle animal and that it'll protect her and make her have sweet dreams. And maybe that it doesnt like to be squished in with other people, it just wants her to himself....and wants to sleep in the big girl bed.
Is it normal for my boyfriend to fuck me in my sleep?
This really depends.I had a girlfriend once who told me I never needed to ask. I could do anything to her, whenever I wanted.Even while she said this to me, I would ask “like this?” and “what about this?” I stuck my dick in everything. The answer was always YES.For a while, I would wake up in the middle of the night, pull her panties down and fuck her for my own pleasure, without much regard for her pleasure.Then I started fucking her for her pleasure, and I loved the feeling of her cumming on me. I think we probably fucked every night out of the week for months because of that, and whatever few nights we had off, I’d still wake up and hold her close to me.Do you like it? If so, who cares if it’s normal?
Why do cats like to sleep with us?
We’re safe, and we feed cats.Cats are very small and delicate, and very much at risk from scavanger/predators. They generally look for a safe sleeping place, where other creatures can’t get atthem. High ledges are a favourite, or hidden hidey-holes. Failing that, other cats are both an extra lookout, and warm. Even cats who fight a lot will often sleep curled up together.But then there’s humans. We’re HUGE. We’re easily the largest animals most cats ever see. We actively care for cats. The chances of a wandering fox, eagle, jackal, wolf or other wandering danger messing with one of us vast lumbering beasts is remote. So literally the safest place to sleep is on a human. Preferably one they know. It’s another way of sleeping in a place where other creatures can’t reach them.And hey, we’re warm as well. Particularly during the day, when we don’t wear blankets, and where a lap represents safetly and affection and a high inaccessible vantage point, all at the same time,And then there’s habit. Cats often find humans unpredictable. So they tend to find something that works and stick with it. My kitten got attacked a lot by the other cats, and so took to sleeping on me, as I would protect her. As she got older, the cats got along better, and she didn’t need the protection. And generally she wanted to go out at night. So she’s wait for me to go to bed, often hanging around getting more and more grumply if I stayed up late, until I went to bed, and she could curl up and sleep on me, because this was a SAFE SLEEPING PLACE. She’d only stay for about three or four minutes, because, hey, it was night, and a cat has things to do. But she’d wait an hour or two for me to go to bed, for the chance to get those three or four minutes, because this was a STRATEGY THAT WORKED.The other cat also occasionally tried to sleep on me, but I had to shut him out, because he didn’t like my alarm clock, and learned how to turn it off while I was asleep.The third cat preferred sleeping with my housemate, and would only sleep in my room in the early morning when the housemate was away. He would sleep on the edge of my duvet, so that I couldn’t get up without waking him. This was nothing to do with safety or affection, but merely to make sure I couldn’t leave the house without waking him, thus ensuring he could demand to be fed before I left. He didn’t eat the food until later in the day, but he knew if I left the house early, I wouldn’t back before nightfall.
3yo grinding teeth at night?
i was thinking the same thing that heyyyou said, grinding your teeth isn't harmless, it can cause damage and even though they are baby teeth the damage can carry over into the adult set...that is why dentists are concerned about baby tooth decay. my son is about to be three and does the same thing, it really bothers me but i haven't talked to a doctor yet. mostly because i feel that he's so young i can't expect him to keep a mouth guard in all night and i'm pretty sure there are no underlying factors causing his tooth grinding and waking up. he does the same thing when he wakes up, sometimes he even goes to the door and tries to go in the living room in his sleep *he sleeps in his own bed in our room* but i just tell him to go back to bed and he listens. but i think he's sleeping. lol i'm not so concerned with that is it is likely just mild sleep walking and thats relatively normal for kids. it should go away with time, if not you will be more aware of how severe it is when she gets older and able to deal with it then. i bet the two are related, but the tooth grinding is a concern because of the risk of damaging her teeth...so talk to her doctor about ways to deal with teeth grinding in toddlers. best of luck! and hey, maybe you can pass down some tips if you figure out what to do. :)
