My cat does not want to sleep with me like he use to when he was younger - January 23rd 2017, 11:07 AM

It's been like this for a long time now but i'm really missing it he sleeps with mum on her bed he wants to go in there every night but he never comes and gets on my bed with me anymore what could I have done to change his mind he always comes and sits with me if i'm in the living room but never comes on my bed at night. He is an old cat so he doesn't go out much he just wants to sleep at the bottom of someones bed or down stairs on the back of the sofa cause he likes it there cause he can look at the window.

anyone know why ?

Hi Justin,

Animals sometimes change their mind on something quite quickly. My dog used to sleep with me but then suddenly stopped. It might be that your cat wants to sleep with someone else, or wants to sleep alone.

Have you brought your cat into your room at night? That might be something to try.

Either way, don't take it personal.

Hey Justin,

Animals are like humans in the sense that they change their minds on what they like and how comfortable they are. Like my dog loves me and sleeps with me but will lay with my grandma in her chair when we are watching tv.

Maybe your bed might be too high now for him since he is an older cat.

I wouldn't worry about it. I know you miss him but maybe he will come back to you one day you just never know.

I really hoped this helped in some way.
