If you have a cat that sleeps with you through the night, you can appreciate the benefits like being able to share the warmth of cuddling, relieving stress after a long day, and nurturing the bond between you and your kitty.
When a cat suddenly starts sleeping with you, it’s likely because he’s come to trust you and enjoys sharing space with you. The bond between kitty and human is clearly being established, and that has to make you feel you’re doing something right. If you’d like to lure your cat to sleep with you and keep her there for the night, you’ll need to establish a routine and that will take patience and consistency.
Here are eight things to try to get your cat to sleep with you at night:
If you do choose to let your cat sleep with you at night, crack the door so your kitty can access its water, food, and litter box. Scatter a few toys just outside your door as well in case your cat wakes looking for something to do.
Keep in mind your cat’s paws can be dirty, especially if they ever go outdoors (not recommended). For an indoor cat, be sure to keep the litter box scooped daily and cleaned regularly to cut back on the risks there as well. You'll also want to brush your cat regularly and treat her for fleas and ticks.
Snoozing with your cat can give both you and your feline friend a sense of security and that might help you both sleep better! Interacting with your cat lowers blood pressure and your heart rate, which helps you relax even more. If sleeping with your cat is something you desire, you can create the perfect nighttime environment for you and kitty with a little patience and a few tricks. 🐈
