    ok....last night....my DH and I are asleep in our queen sized bed....neither of us are bed hogs and never been a problem.

    Well...................

    last night I wake up in the middle of the night and my husband is kinda hogging the bed so I give him a little poke in his back with my elbow and say honey....move over a little...you're kinda hogging the bed....and he says....half asleep

    " I can't"

    I say "why not?"

    He says "because Alex is sleeping on my side"...."why don't you move over"

    seems reasonable .....yes

    so I say, half asleep...."I can't move over, Tabitha is sleeping here"

    Well we both go back to sleep, crammed in the middle of the bed like contortionist.

    In the morning, when we were finally awake...we both laughed...and said.."did what happened last night really happen?"...."well as long as the furbabies are comfortable"

    Tooooooo funny.

    I know all my fellow pet lovers would understand and get a chuckle

    That is why ours sleep in their own beds.

    I am in the minority here. I never let pets sleep in my bed.

    That's why my husband and I got a KING size bed. we have 4 Chihuahua's (two that sleep with us) and had to get the bigger bed to give US room to sleep. How can little 5 pound dogs take up so much room?

    When the DH is home, they usually don't sleep with us, but when he is gone, it's fair game on his side of the bed. They both stretch out like it's heaven (I have the mattress pad warmer still on, lol)

    I can relate. Many times have I woken up in a fetal position due to Cici (tabby cat) curling up against my shins. (and I have a full-size bed)

    Tink is very pushy at night...she just takes those little feet of hers and pushes on you till you move to give her as much room as she desires....She sleeps with her head on the pillow but her body is across the bed...she takes up as much room as I do,,,brat!

    Tink (your avatar I assume) is the cutest little thing. Tabitha and Alex are both cats.....Alex is daddy's girl and Tabitha is mine. They both sleep next to our tummies and its like having furry hot water bottle....laugh

    Same here except we have a king size bed, but the cat must be comfortable!

    I remember when our cat,Patch's, use to sleep with us.... One nite DH is on this back with legs separated.. She decided to sleep there,bad mistake........ When he decided to turn on his side...well, there Patch's went..... screaming and in mid air....!!!!
    She even hit the wall!!!!.....DH felt terrible!!!! She just looked @ him like, What did I do????
    She got him back.....The next morning @ 4:30am ,he didn't get up to go to work[day off].... She came in and started licking his head.....Time to get up!!!![ She was better than the alarm]
    He had to get up because she wouldn't stop!!! He went in and started making coffee and was looking for her...... She had gone back to the bedroom and gotten in bed with me....... Her mission was accomplished. LOL LOL LOL

    I can relate to that. If they are not on my bed I feel out of sorts. I like knowing that they are there when I wake up during the night.

    With 2 goldens we have been there too, in a king size, with the darlings spread out in the middle and my DH and I hanging on to the edge of the bed. Now they are too old to jump on the bed and we kinda miss that.
