    If I'm interpreting your post correctly...

    Yes.

    I often let my two cats (both weigh about 10ish pounds) sleep on my legs. And they almost always fall asleep (both the felines and my limbs). :eek:

    I used to.. but then it dawned on me that if I move my legs, the cats simply flop over and go back to sleep. They don't care. I was projecting my human needs (to not be woken up) onto them. However, they sleep ALL DAY when we're at work. So I'm not depriving them of anything.

    There's a saying:

    Dogs have owners.
    Cats have servants.

    Break the habit. You're the boss. Your cats will still love you.

    Haha. My cats don't just flop over... one will claw me and then jump away. The other will jump away watch me out of the corner of her eye as she 'grooms' and then saunter right back onto my lap. :rolleyes:

    My gray kitty didn't still love me after I rubbed her flea medicine in. :( She wouldn't come within five feet of me for two days.

    I'd rather have cats then a stupid dog. I think cats fit my personality much better.

    My fiancee complains that I'll lay in one uncomfortable position all night in order to accommodate our cats but I can only last ten minutes with her sleeping on me before I have to move.

    HAHA. Thanks for that laugh. HAHA, sorry I'm still laughing. :D

    My boyfriend makes a similar complaint. I wind up sleeping in a 'Z' formation to avoid my two cats (who both love to curl up in the middle of my tiny, twin-sized bed.

    I doubt it. Cats are boring and pissy. Dogs are playful and fun.

    Well hes not ordinary. He is very playful and very fun. Never pissy like our other boring cat. Ill take a string and can make him do all sort of flips in the air as he tries to grab it. He fights and chases my uncles annoying terrier. He will dive bomb the pissy cat from like 10 feet up. He'll sit perched on a bookcase and when she walks by he'll fall down on top of her and bat her a few times with this paws and then run away. He also gets into mooods at night where he sprints from one end of the house to the other jumping over things running into things and is very fun to chase when hes like this. So much quicker up steps then I, but I can keep up with him otherwise.

    I miss my iguana, when it was warm sometimes I would take him outside and watch him whip my golden lab with his tail. :D I wish I had gotton a leash for him before I moved and had to give him to someone else, they're good animals to take for walks on occasion when the weather's right. They also like to go swimming sometimes.

    Cats may be pissy, dogs may be dumb but lizards can kick your ass! :eek:

    When my extremities begin losing blood due to the position and weight of my pet, that's when the animal is rudely awakened so I may move.

    I'm not putting myself to discomfort so a cat can tenderly slumber undisturbed.

    Serves it well too; I can't recall a time when my cat decided not to jump on my stomach because I was sleeping. It just jumps up, and begins pushing its claw-bearing feet into my stomach.

    No reason not to treat it the same :)

    On really cold nights (rare events in Mississippi), I've been known to fall asleep in odd positions with as many as four cats on me. ...warm, warm, warm...

    If I move, they generally adapt themselves to whatever space I allow them on the bed or on me.

    I am the crazy old lady with all the cats...

    My cat enjoys sleeping on my legs in the morning....he's not heavy enough to put them to sleep, but he can be overly warm (my windows face east and in the morning Warm Rivulets of Buttery Sunlight™ caress my face). If I happen to roll over while he's there (usually curled up on my calves/shins), he gets up and runs around the room wailing and screeching until I get up and sit him back down on the bed. :rolleyes:
