Spencer slept with me the other night for the first time since Joe and I moved in together (about 4 years). When I was still living at my parents’ house he would sleep with me almost every night.
For the past few months we’ve been keeping the bedroom door closed all the time and the cats and bunnies out of it (for my allergies). That night Spencer cried and cried at the door when I went to bed. After a half hour I finally gave in and let him in. When Joe came to bed several hours later Spencer was sleeping on his side of the bed. He put him out of the bedroom but Spencer just cried and banged at the door again (hooking his paw under it and pulling). We let him in again and when I woke up in the morning I was sandwiched between Joe and Spencer.
I don’t know why he was so determined to sleep with me that night. He hasn’t done in the nights since.
