67 Percent Of Americans Sleep With Their Pets

ARCHDALE, N.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A lot of Americans like to take cat naps with their pets.

That’s according to a survey by Sealy mattresses, which found 67 percent of people regularly bed down with their cats and dogs – and many say their furry friends are better bed partners than the human variety.

In fact, 51 percent say their sleep is disturbed by their partner, compared to 38 percent who claim their pooches and pussycats wake them up constantly.

Women are more inclined to prefer pets in their bed to men: 55 percent of ladies say their man is more of a bed hog than a dog or a cat while 14 percent of the guys can’t decide if a woman or a pet is more inclined to keep them awake at night.

Finally, 33 percent of Americans are doggedly determined to keep pets out of the bed no matter what.
