While the extra body heat can be so tempting on a cold winter night, many people say allowing your pet to sleep in you bed is a big no-no. Not only does it allow them to be in the "pack leader" role of the family, but the hair and dander can be problematic for bed cleanliness and an irritant for those with asthma and allergies.
We're on the fence, because although we love the extra warmth in the bed, our cat tends to want to play about an hour before we're ready to wake-up. But we've managed the hair and dander issues by cleaning our sheets often and replacing our pillow cases even more often. But we do know people who won't even allow their pet in their bedroom because of these issues.
How do you deal with pets in the bedroom?
