    As a germophobe, no thanks. Do you guys even know the amount of bacteria they carry?! For all those who voted yes, you guys need to take care of your hygiene, like seriously.

    I've had pets all my life and even from a young age, I had my cat and dog at the time sleeping on the bed with me. Years on all four of my cats are allowed to sleep up on the bed and most nights they do or they sleep in their own beds or they hiding spots around the house. I've never seen anything wrong with sharing a bed with your pets and I'd be lost without having them within arms length from me during the night or not being woken up with a paw tap on the nose or a wet nose rub on my cheek :love:

    So do/did you guys let your pets sleep with you or if you don't have any pets now, do you think you would ever let your pets sleep on your bed if you have any in the future?
    So I used to have a kitten, I'd always want her to sleep on my bed but she never liked it so I gave up on that dream

    One day when I was in year 6, I woke up in the morning and she was cuddled up right next to me!! I was like that's so cute

    Later on when I went to school I found out there had been an earthquake in the middle of the night, and I can't remember when I put the pieces together but she slept with me cos she was scared of the earthquake!!! And I wasn't awake to comfort her, but she stayed stuck to me till the morning when I woke up!!!

    Omg it's so cute and sad... Poor kitty... She's dead now

    If you're that afraid of germs, I suggest you don't get any pet regardless of where you let it sleep. Or have children for that matter.

    Possibly invest in a plastic bubble as well.

    Incidentally, low level germs can be good for your immune system, living in too sterile an environment can cause issues.

    Er, no... I have pet chickens. Never try to sleep next to a chicken. You'll be covered in shite and feathers and have scratches everywhere. You'll also be lying on some squashed eggs.

    No. I let them on my bed during the day very rarely; mostly only when I'm sad. When I sleep I want the bed to myself ty. I swear, when *if* I get married, hubby can sleep on the floor.

    you're a cat lady? That answers a lot of questions. No, I'm sorry I'm just joking. Cats are great and I let my cat sleep on my bed anytime too.

    Still surprised how close the poll is. I personally don't know many people who don't let their pets sleep on the bed and I know even less who don't allow their dogs inside the house
