Miss Kitty has her own blankie at the end of the bed too - or sometimes a sheet called "the kitty sheet".
When I first got her, I kept her out of the bedroom at night because of my allergies. As I got more used to her (after two weeks I was fine) she jumped up on my bed one night and never left.
She's very funny. She will ONLY sleep on the very end of the bed (I swear I wonder if she's going to fall off the edge sometime), and she always gets up the SECOND I do. For awhile I just brought her to bed with me when it was time, but she didn't like being so reliable...now the procedure is I go to bed, she watches me go in the room, and about five minutes after I'm settled and the light has gone out she follows in. It's almost like clockwork.
Sometimes I'll forget to turn off a light, or turn up/down the TV in the next room (I like to listen to Nick at Nite when I'm going to sleep, hehe), and she'll get right up with me, even if she's sound asleep - and the procedure begins again (she waits until the lights are out, and about five minutes later returns). I've learned to "trick" her a bit - if I block my getting up from her view by piling the comforter up so she can't see me when I get up to do something, she sometimes doesn't notice so she does stay put. Sometimes.
Once in a great while she'll cuddle up to my exposed thigh (I tend to wrap the covers around my torso instead of slipping under them), but 99% of the time she just sleeps down by my feet. She never bothers my face or cries or anything of the sort in the bedroom though - and I have to admit I'd miss her when she wasn't there!
