21 Pets That Want To Sleep In Your Bed — And Aren’t Into Sharing

Sharing your bed with a pet (or five) can be cozy, but sometimes our cats and dogs don’t seem to understand the concept of personal space.

For anyone who’s ever gotten up to get a drink of water in the middle of the night and come back to find your spot has been taken, we feel your pain! It’s even worse because they’re too cute to move, and we end up feeling guilty for even trying. These 21 pets have mastered the art of taking over, and we can’t stop grinning!
