My little Tara, sleeps in her crate. I would love her to be able to sleep with me in bed, but she has this idea that the bed needs to be peed on. Thankfully i anticipated that (i had a cat that thought the same many years and Many mattresses ago) and had waterproof covers on the mattress (so none would ever smell like pee! which is the worst smell in the world IMO). =( Now I have yet another new mattress and I don't let Tara in the room. Maybe when she is older I'll have the courage to try again. She usually naps on the comfy chairs then goes and lays down in her crate. When I go upstairs to sleep, I just shut the crate door. So it works.
