My Cat Sleeps in My Bed -- and Causes Chaos

First, he took over the bed. Then, he wakes up whenever I use the bathroom. Let me sleep, Cosmo!

the cat is a dominant animal, this explains a lot of his behavior.
All cats love to be very spoiled in comportament, nutrition, the environment where they live and enjoy their freedom.
They do not recognize the man as a leader of the pack but only as a parent.
Is only normal that Cosmo has taken total control of the family that adopted him.
Cosmo wants, as they do all too well the cats, an infinite number of exceptions, and I do not think he have ever suffered a rebuke or an outright rejection; these are the results Cosmo has become a tough dictator of the family.
Having a cat in the family is like giving birth to a child unexpectedly, he need to be loved but also he need to be well educated ......
but this is a different story where the man has a lot to learn
very nice break - ty Cher

My animals know I am not an alpha, so I have to resort to underhanded tactics, like sneaking off to my bedroom when they are sleeping elsewhere, and quietly closing my bedroom door. Sometimes this works - other times, I am awakened with them scratching at my bedroom door and must submit !

Solution of course: get a second bed (for yourself). Cats rule!

4 of my 7 rescues sleep by me, that is why I have a large bed!! they can have whatever it is they want as I try to make up for the bad life they had before I found them

when my little dog gets all alpha on me, I get down on all fours, make snarly faces, growl and push him back. It works for me. Its always a struggle for power with Scooter.

Cats always own the entire bed no matter what!
