Many cat owners have felines that like to cuddle up with them at night. While it might seem natural and comforting to sleep with a cat each night, you might not want to share your bed with your cat after all.

Beyond the cat crawling all over you and keeping you awake, you also have to consider litter and dirt on the cat’s paws that might get in your bed as well. Also keep in mind that cats could spread germs to you while you’re sleeping.

Still if you love your cat, you’ll likely let it do anything it wants anyway, so you might as well sleep with your cat if that’s what it wants to do.
