Hey! I have two cats. One (British breed) was rescued from bad owners 4 years ago, the second was picked up on the street shortly before Christmas. The older cat is always there, but does not impose its society. The youngest climbs into her arms, purrs. To be honest, when a cat sleeps next to me, then the sleep is somehow stronger, I get better sleep. Although it would seem that an animal close by should cause concern, but in reality it is not.
