Ask a vet: What's up with my cat's sleeping habits?

Q: Why does my cat always want to sleep on me, with her face so close that her whiskers touch my skin? She cries and cries when I move her. Help!
Liz Wright, King City, Ont.

A: It's likely because you are warm and relatively soft. The gentle up-and-down movement of your chest and the comforting rhythm of your heart lull her to sleep. Any inconvenience to  you probably doesn't matter to her, but it does matter to you (unless, like her, you can nap through the day).

Buy her a cosy cat bed and a fuzzy hot water bottle. Buy yourself earplugs and shut your bedroom door at night. After a few weeks of tough love, she will get over it.
