I enjoy having my cats sleep with me, but some people do not. It sounds
like your mom fits that category. I suggest that you not try to force
your mom to let Marlo in her bedroom. It sounds like she and Marlo are
getting along well, so it's best not to make either of them
uncomfortable by trying force changes. I'm really pleased to hear about
how well Marlo is doing now and to hear about how she and your mother
are getting along together.

I agree, Mary, no need to try to change things up. Marlo will find a
comfy spot to sleep. Buffy sometimes sleeps with me but not always. The
size of the bed doesn't seem to matter. I'm convinced cats increase in
density at night. LOL


Their body heat reaches supernova levels. The area under them can get
extremely warm, and if mine is nestled in the crook of my legs, I almost
have to make him move.


Depends on what time of year it is. Right now we're in a heat wave, so
yeah, I feel the same way. But on chilly nights, the unlimited source of
warmth that is a cat is quite welcome.

GLyN seldom sleeps on the bed, with OR without me,
and when he does, it's usually because it's cold or
raining.

Recently, we had a 'cooler' night, temps got below 60
for the first time in maybe 6 months, so he DID decide
he could spend a few hours napping with me.

But now, just days later, it's 100 daytime and mid 70s
at night, so not seeing a lot of him except when he's
hungry.

True that.

I think they go into some quantum state at night where they are
snuggled into three places in the bed simultaneously so you end
up contorted into a Z with your arm up the wall to make room for
just one of them.



Oh, they don't have to do any advanced physics. You just need to have
enough cats. Nipsy sleeps on my right side, Scooter is on the left.
Marlo (still on vacation at Mom's house) sleeps between my legs.
That's pretty well wedged in.

Actually, Marlo hasn't really been sleeping between my legs since
moving from the old house. Being in Florida now, she doesn't really
need the extra heat. But I reserve that spot for her just in case she
decides that she wants it back.
