“Cats who slept in their owner’s bed were reported to be equally as disruptive as human partners, and were associated with weaker feelings of comfort and security than both human and dog bed partners.”
To explore the associations between pet ownership and human sleep, nearly 1,000 adult women living in America participated in the research. “Fifty-five percent of participants shared their bed with at least one dog and 31 percent shared their bed with at least one pet. However, 57 percent shared their bed with a human partner.”
Dog owners had earlier bedtime and wake-up times than persons who had cats but no dogs, according to the report.
