I laugh at the truth, not at your pain.
At 3 am:

Fat Cat: HELLOOOOO! I am SO PLEASED to be with you, in your bed!

Me: Whuh? Aren't you supposed to be shut out?

Fat Cat: But I got in again! Aren't I clever?

Stays, also purring mightily, until 6.30, when Sister of Fat Cat appears: HELLOOOOO! Aren't you pleased to see me?

Actually it was really nice to have 2 fat snuggling cats. Then we all got up, Fat Cat was bounced at by Sid, lurking on the stairs, and Hysteria ensued.


I need to get this cat a dog. It might result in a skinnier cat.
You have to get up in the morning to walk a dog, though.
Presumptuous Cat, meet Ezra & Abigail. Ezra & Abigail, meet Presumptuous Cat...

I've been missing the cat vs. monkey dialogues. Gotta love your cat. Cat is so funny. Sorry about your neck pains, tho. Be thankful you just have a cat. We have 2 dogs who both want to sleep in the bed. One is the size of a half-grown moose (she's the puppy). The other wants the pillows (head toward beloved husband, butt toward my face...lucky me).
We have three. I move too much in my sleep so they leave me alone, but there are times when she will have all three piled up around her head and neck. She just lays there and puts up with it. I think they have her well trained.
Last night:

very nearly 3am
Cat: *purr* *purrr*
Monkey: *vaguely semi-conscious* Buh? Why am I awa--ack! *cat head-butts monkey in face*

Cat: I loooove yooooou! *purr* *purrr* *purrr* *walks back and forth on bed* Pet me! Petmepetmepetme!
Monkey: Blergh. *pets cat*

Cat: Yay!!! *purrrrr* *makes biscuits on monkey* *head-butts monkey in face*
Monkey: Guh.

Very nearlyer 3am by about 3 minutes
Cat: Okay, done now! *leaves*
Monkey: ...
My first cat, a 25-pound orange tom named Morris (c'mon: I was four when he was born, and four-year-olds generally don't have a grasp of subtle names), used to do that. Unfortunately, he'd get between me and the wall, and push and stretch, and stretch and push, and before you know it, I'd be on the floor. At the time, I thought I was the clever one for having the top bunk on a bunkbed...
Heehee... I have a 95lb shepherd mix who likes to do this same dance. Somehow, he manages to maneuver me off the pillows and I never wake up.
Cats and small children manage some special waveform thingummy that allows them to take up as much as they like of any bed, despite weighing 20 lbs. or less. Seriously--as a toddler, my daughter could easily crowd me off a California King bed.

The late Queen Shelley specialized in claiming my pillow--whichever one I was on. Because no matter how many pillows she had, she wanted THAT one. With my head on it. Preferably occupied in such a way as to wrap around my head, smother me, and cause my body temp to spike.

And if I could have her back, of course, she could sleep on my head forever and I wouldn't move her ever again.
Heee! My cat does that, but we have one of those sleep number beds and hubby likes his bed very soft (while I need a firm mattress because of a bad back). The result is that I wake up nearly crippled from having my upper torso resting on the hard side and from mid-back down slung over across his side (he's usually up well before I am), which is much like sleeping half in and half out of a pool of quicksand.

Igor walking!
