I have OCD, so I'm forever cleaning...you could probably eat off of my kitchen floor

My Gracie sleeps with her little head right on the pillow next to me...I have no problem with that at all, even though I'm a neat freak.

Actually, if you all don't mind me being a wag here.....you would get more "bacteria' from you boyfriend than you would get from a cat.

I'v had cats sleeping with me for over 50 years. Nothing in this world like a warm, furry body next to you, purring it's head off. If they could bottle that stuff, they'd make a million.

Oh that is so true!! I don't think there's a sound in this world that I enjoy more. It's sooooo soothing. I just love it!

I recently read that spray from the toilet flushing can travel up to 20'. This means that most things in our bathrooms, including our toothbrushes, are probably covered with whatever's in our toilets (as scary as that is, it sounds totally believable to me)... Yet we all brush our teeth and most of us seem to be none the worse for it. I walk around barefoot in my home and probably am just as guilty as my cats when it comes to tracking around dirt, so I don't block them out of places. Even if they are kept away from my pillow, I will still sleep on it and it won't stay clean for long.

I agree 100%
Even my Husband says that hearing a cat purr makes him feel better.

There are little caps one can put on toothbrushes to disinfect them. And one can put the toilet seat down when flushing.

Gizmo also grooms her feet and body very thoroughly before she goes to bed. Her fur does not smell and her company is very welcome.

I keep the toliet seat down ... this also aids in less kittys playing in the water issues...

I sleep with a dog and a cat on me so my pillow is far from sacred ...

OH Cats are far far cleaner than humans so whats the problem, u would allow a mate or spouse to sleep with you

I, too, keep the toilet seat down to prevent Gizmo from playing in the water. That is actually not a problem since she does not like water, and the toilet has little in it anyway. But there's always the risk that she might experiment.
And I miss the little furball at night. Last night I had to go get her to have her come to bed...she'd curled up in the kitty palace instead and I missed her!

The point I was trying to make with the toilet story is that there are plenty of things that are dirtier than we could ever imagine. As a result, I choose to make indoor-only cats the least of my worries. True, you can put toilet seats down and put a cap on the toothbrush, but how many people do it 100% of the time and in the right order?

I'm thinking the pillow issue is of no more concern than living with a pet in general. My cat is pretty much everywhere, and for the most part welcome to be where she likes.

My cats are happy to share the pillow with me, but say that if I don't want to share I'm welcome to sleep elsewhere.

LOL! I caught Duke on video splashing around in the toilet! He made me promise not to show it to anyone else though. We try to keep the seat down now, but I live with a grown man... In otherwords, it ain't happenin'! I'm always checking the bathroom to make sure the lid is down. I also keep a little tray of water with floating toys in the tub for Duke to splash around in.

He sleeps on my pillow all the time and I love it. How could I turn him away when he nudges me and curls up under my neck!?!

i usually have 1 if not 2 cats crowding me off my pillow at night.

we keep the toilet lid down too. not only do i not like them drinking out of the toilet, it's just plain gross. no matter how clean i keep it, i still know it's a toilet. we lived with my in-laws for a brief period, and they let their cat drink out of the toilet. i thought it was so gross. even grosser, my cats couldn't balance so they'd put their front paws in the toilet! so that's why the lid's always down at our house.

I would certainly put my face on my kitchen floor because I clean it 3x a week. Hell, I've even gone to sleep with my head in the toilet bowl before after a night out.

LOL! I see why your username is 'Wickedkitten'! I agree though, if I were worried about my cat tracking things around the house, I wouldn't have a cat! I wouldn't try keeping Duke off the pillows, even if I thought it would be remotely successful. I like my kitty cat good and spoilt!

I make our bed EVERY morning and EVERY night when I get home the covers have been "clawed" down and a nice little napping spot has been created between the pillow and the pulled down covers. I sleep with those covers under my chin and Bijou's face on my pillow and often on my face (sleep is only allowed of course after he has kneaded the side of my face and neck while he had his little suckle on my neck before he sighs and puts his head on the pillow to go to sleep). It's the cutest thing - when he's ready to go to sleep he lets out this huge sigh and then settles down.

Actually, I wouldn't have a problem putting my face on the kitchen floor. I invite my kitties up and miss them when they aren't sleeping with me, whether it be on the bottom by my feet, on my pillow, or on my body. If I was worried about catching something from my cats, I wouldn't have any. I'm actually more worried about them catching something from me

I do believe that Gizmo is allergic to me.
