Will Bengal Cats Sleep With You?

There’s nothing quite like snuggling up with your cat.

Cats love it, humans love it … what’s not to love?!

But will Bengal cats sleep with you?

After all, Bengals are noted for their unique personalities and temperaments … how does this translate to them sleeping with you at night?

Long story short, Bengal cats will sleep with humans. They will cuddle up and snooze away, just like any other cat.

In fact, most Bengal cats seem to rather like curling up in bed with their owner(s)

There are just a couple of things you need to be aware of:

1. In our guide to Bengal cat affection, we explained that Bengals are very much affectionate on their own terms. Don’t forget this and don’t be annoyed if your Bengal doesn’t want to sleep in the same bed as you … this isn’t really something you can force on them.
2. Bengals (like all cats) can often be rather active at night ,especially when younger. As you are getting ready for bed, your Bengal may be getting ready to play! Be wary of this if you are someone who doesn’t cope well with an interrupted sleep pattern.


If you’re wondering if a Bengal cat will sleep with you, then the answer is “probably”.

Bengal cats can be snuggly, cuddly animals when they want to be. It will just be on their terms.

Also bear in mind that Bengals (especially younger ones) can be quite active during the night so you may not actually want them in your bedroom – it could become rather irritating!

Don’t say we didn’t warn you when you are stuck wide awake late at night with a playful Bengal that won’t go to sleep!
