When the bed just isn't big enough anymore

I have no idea how some parents co-sleep, especially if they have a brood of children.  I am currently relegated to the spare bed as hubby and I and two cats just are too many beings for one queen sized bed.

It's funny how cats being such small creatures take up so much room. In Summer they lie across the bed stretched out to keep cool and in Winter they snuggle so close they are almost claustrophobic against you.

With my arthritis I am often awake and moving around to try and get comfortable, Max follows me, snuggling close.  More often than not I end up with a sliver of mattress right on the edge of the bed.

So I gave up and retreated to the spare room some nights ago.  Max has followed and he is currently snuggled up next to me, taking up half of a double bed, snoring his little head off. I can take some comfort in that at least I have the other half and not a sliver!!

Mind you he is a comfort given I am awake at 3 in the morning in pain and struggling with anxiety at the same time.  But more on that in another post.

How many beings share your bed?

Thanks for popping by xxx


  1. I so understand you comment about the amount of bed a cat can demand.
    At the moment it is usually two adults and a cat in our bed. Jazz will not allow Jewel to share the bed with us so I have bought her a comfortable cat cave.
    The nights when like you I am wakeful in pain/anxiety or both of the above I prowl the house. I am often joined by both cats. Sending cyber hugs. Always.

    1. Your cyber hugs are greatly accepted, and here are some right back at you xxx

      Hoping you don't have too many nights on the prowl. xxx
