Fred is driving me nuts! As winter approaches he has started wanting to climb in under the duvet with me at night. He insists in sleeping between me and my arm – basically with his nose in my armpit, no matter whether I am sleeping on my back or front.
I can’t imagine anything worse than sleeping with your nose in someones armpit – no matter what it smells like.
If this was all, I am sure we would both get a good nights rest, but the silly fellow needs to regulate his temperature so after lying under the duvet for a while he gets out again till he has cooled off then wants to get back in again. He has learned that I sleep quite deeply so when he wants re-entry he meows and gently digs his nails into the soft flesh near my armpit so I will lift the duvet for him. Again, and again….and again.
I love my sleep and I love my cat. I could banish him from the room but I can’t bring myself to do it. I guess I will have to get used to less sleep.
