    My grandma's cat used to do that all the time... Besides you kicking him, I don't think anything such as suffocating would happen because it is very very hard for animals (even humans) to smother themselves because their natural instinct is to find air. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Jade is right. One of my cats sleeps upstairs under a heavy bedspread all day. He always shows up for suppertime! He feels safe under there, probably, and it's warm. (It's like a "den") I always have to watch for the lump under the spread before I sit down on the bed! He CAN breath under there, 'cause like Jade said, if he couldn't he'd come out. The worst he can do is like what my Izzie does to me and chew on your toes at 1AM!

    No, he will be fine, sweetie. He instinctively knows when to get air when he needs it, so it is not a problem. I used to worry about that too, but I don't anymore!

    Cats are much smarter than we are. I would say, if he is going back there, time and again, he's fine. :-)

    When Skitzee and Sparky were young they both slept under the covers at the foot of the bed. Max and Zoe also sleep under the covers - but i am required to make a "tent" with a pillow and my body so they can snuggle. Lucy also sleeps totally under blankets. They just want to be warm, and near you! Enjoy it....nothing like a little (or big!) furry heater in bed with you!
