I have two cats that I absolutely adore. However, when it is time for bed, they are closed into our laundry room that doubles as their suite until morning. While some people feel they sleep better with their pets, it is important to do an honest assessment. Ask yourself if your pet frequently moves around or jumps up and down from the bed, disrupting your sleep. If your pet interrupts your deep sleep even once a night, it could have long term health consequences.
