I was curious to find out if sleeping at my head was a 'dominance' behavior but from all of your replies, it doesn't seem that way. This particular cat has trusted me since day one and it is a kick! It is great to have my cats with me during the night and I enjoy them immensly - but sometimes I feel a little sleep deprived
Another question: I bought a toy for my cats which is a bird that is tied to the end of a springy type string that you put in a doorway and the cats can jump, paw it, etc. I put it away, in the closet when I am not home for safety reasons (ie sometimes they get the string wrapped around their necks - ugh!). Now, whenever I come home, Cisco (same cat as above) runs for the closet and meows until I open the door and/or hang the bird in the doorway. It is like she is incensed/obsessed with this thing and I feel bad when I don't have time to hang it up for her to play with. Will she ever get over this behavior? She seems to play with it for awhile, then the other cat gets a turn (there is definitely a pecking order here), then she gets tired of it for some time but always returns to it. Would she be better off without it?
