RE: Pets in the bedroom?
I had two cats for a while, now down to one. So far it has worked out pretty well. Kitty sleeps on top of the cover and helps keep me warm in the winter.

I only have to yell at her if she bites my CPAP hose.
(usually that means GET UP I'M HUNGRY NOW!)

Our dog (3yo cocker spaniel) has his own bed in a nook off the laundry. It's very snug and secure and he uses it quite happily. We have never let cats or dogs share our bedroom.
I'm with you Paul, no pets in the bedroom. Just something I was brought up with.
I could imagine they would be very comforting though.

I don't want any animals in the house, much less the bedroom.

RE: Pets in the bedroom?
I do have a good friend that has a guide dog and she comes over to spend the night once in a while and I don't mind her bringing her guide dog because she has to hav him and he is a very good dog and she does a GREAT job taking care of him. But I had another friend bring their dog down and while we were gone, she chewed through the phone wire, so we had to put a stop to that, just bringing run of the mill pets down.

RE: Pets in the bedroom?
We have 3 dogs and 2 cats. Two of the dogs get on the bed but only down by our feet. One of the dogs sleeps in my spot until I come to bed then he moves. The third dog is relatively new to us and while she will hop up there, she never stays. She is, however, just tall enough to stick her cold nose right into my ear every morning. The CPAP mask really freaked her out the first week or so.

The cats sleep wherever the heck they want to. They can sleep on my as long as it is sleep. They are not allowed to sit on me and clean.

I keep my CPAP fairly high up, it's about level with my head. With the old S7, one of the cats figured out how to turn it off. That's how he would get me up in the morning to feed him. What it got him though was booted out the front door. One of our current cats has figured out how to turn the S9 off but I threatened to turn him into slippers. He's not done it since. Since I wake up so quickly and frantic when the S9 gets turned off, I'm not happy when I find him sitting on top of it.

Mike, the dog I am training to be my Service Dog, used to love to chew the mask hose. I quickly figured out to put it away each morning. But the worst was when he did it when I was up north visiting family. Luckily I had a brand new one at home and had it overnight-ed to me.

One cat, in the beginning of this fun, used to swat at the mask but discovered that resulted in getting put outside. Joella once pawed my face to get the mask out of the way so she could lick me awake. Duh, the paw to the face did the trick.

Really, other than that, the pets are not an issue with my CPAP. As for bed space and the like, I don't wrap myself around them or anything like that. They in my way, they get moved and they know it. They be obnoxious or make noise, they know they get booted out. My other half, however, will sleep twisted like a pretzel because "he looked so cute, I didn't want to make him move!".

It'd great to see that other people share their whole "Home" with their pets. We treat our 2 cats and yellow Lab as members of the Family. Great companions, especially when I'm on the "Outs" with the wife! lol

I won't have the heart to kick her out of the bedroom though.

we have 3 dogs that sleep in our bed. One is a beagle, one is a schnauzer that his hair is allowed to grow during the cold months and one is a long hair mixed breed. We don't have any trouble with them in the bed with my vpap. if you have a younger dog, you may have to watch it for thinking your mask is a toy. none of our dogs have ever bothered my mask and the youngest has just turned 4. They seem to know that none of that is a toy and they leave it alone (my hose is at least 7 ft with the part that comes with the wisp mask).

Yeah I haven't kicked her out yet. She's like my living teddy bear, I'm so used to sleeping with her it's strange not to. She's 10 and not interested in the mask or cpap at all. Though she is scared of face facts Lol!

RE: Pets in the bedroom?
We own one cat. Pre-CPAP he was allowed in the bedroom and usually, but not always slept on the bed with hubby and I. Cat was banned from the bedroom when he stepped on the ON/OFF button one too many times turning the machine OFF while I was still dozing in the morning. The machine going OFF unexpectedly startles me greatly and I just could not take it any more.
