I only recently started letting Kyleigh on my bed (it's one of the safe spots for the cat!)
I read for about an hour every night in bed, and this is when she's allowed up. She's been really good about it ... but letting her sleep through the night? LMAO NOT A CHANCE:
1 - she takes up too much room
2 - she likes to roll around and give herself a body rub on the bed
3 - she usually drops about 1/2 pound of sand (and this is AFTER being brushed)
4 - after about 10 minutes she gets too hot, and starts panting and shakes the whole bed - makes it hard to read your book!
I waited until she was over a year because I wanted to ensure that she realized "her place." She's been great, no issues. If I noticed a change in her behaviour, no more "bed time"with me ... However, given that she's only ever up there for about 10-15 minutes, and then I'm kicking her off, I really don't foresee any issues in the future!
