Why must they choose the cozy position at the very top of your head and then wrap their loving limbs and paws around your face? Believe it or not, there is a reason for this believe it or no. Not only are our pets eager to show us love by sharing the bed but they also gravitate to warmth. Most people lose body heat through their head so cats snuggle up to your head because they can feel the cozy temperature.
