Are Cats Happier If They Sleep with You?

We often suddenly touch the soft fur when we are sleeping. It is your little guy sneaking into your bed to sleep together while you are sleeping. Or when you wake up at some point and find a cat nuzzling you, or sitting on your belly or head! Why do cats like our quilts so much?

1. Safety

Although cats are small carnivores, they are at risk of being hunted by larger animals and must remain vigilant. When your cat sleeps, it is vulnerable and most likely to be attacked by an unsuspecting predator.

If predators attack at night, sleeping with you can provide them with a sense of security and extra defense. They sleep with you because they trust you, they know you're not a danger, and you can provide an extra layer of defense if needed.


2. Warmth

Cat's love is warm. If you have a warm spot in your home, it won't be long before your cat finds it and takes over it. A cat’s body temperature is as high as 102 degrees (3-4 degrees higher than human body temperature), and its tolerance and desire for warmth far exceeds ours. A warm body is the best place to sleep at night, especially the head or feet (where most heat is lost).

3. Territory

Cats are very territorial animals. Therefore, they may consider your bed to be part of their territory. Cats form their territories by rubbing their heads against objects and walking on them because they have glands on their feet and heads that release pheromones, essentially marking the area as their own. Walking around your bed and bumping heads with you is one way your cat marks its territory.

4. Companionship

Finally, your cat may enjoy sleeping with you simply because they like and trust you. Your cats know you take good care of them, and they think you're a great sleeping companion! Contrary to stereotypes, cats love companionship (on their terms). Cats are generally thought of as independent creatures who are happy in their own company. But your cat may feel lonely. Interacting with the people they love helps enrich their lives (and yours). If your cat sleeps with you, it's a sign that they enjoy your company and want to spend time with you.


Benefits of sleeping with your cat

When your cat feels content, they usually purr. It’s said that a cat’s purring is not only good for their health, it’s also good for yours. The frequency with which a cat purrs helps promote the growth and repair of fractures and fractures, as well as ligament and muscle injuries! It also makes a great pacifier to help you both relax.

Sleeping with your cat not only keeps them warm, it also keeps you warm. In colder climates or during the winter months, your cat may become a welcome addition to your bedtime routine.

Sleeping with your cat can be a great experience, depending on you and your cat's sleeping habits and preferences. As with anything, consider your and your cat's lifestyle and don't force your cat to sleep in your bed. Likewise, if you don't allow your cat to sleep on or in your bed, be sure to offer other options, such as self-heating sleeping pads, cat condos, pet beds, etc.
