ARCHDALE, N.C., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sealy Snooze Report, in its quest to answer all questions surrounding sleep, today finds two out of three dog and cat owners (67%) routinely bed down with their furry friends. For years, dogs and cats have worked their way into our hearts, and now they've found their way into our beds.

Considering what your furry friends may have been digging up in the backyard, do you really want to share that space with your pet? Or, do you throw open the covers selflessly and generously share a spot on your Sealy Posturepedic? Toss'n and turn'n. Sealy asked men and women who's more disturbing to your sleep: pets or partners. Overall 51% say it's their partner who's the disturbance, while 38% feel it's their pet. May we suggest a king-size mattress? Gender Gap. Men apparently need a lot of space from both, pet and partners, 14% were unable to decide who is most annoying. However, women were much more decisive, 55% said their partner was far more annoying than their pet. Studies have shown that women have a harder time sleeping than men ... wonder whose fault that is???? Solitary slumbers. Of all polled pet owners, 33% stood firm that there is no room in bed for man's best friend or their feisty felines. These respondents said they NEVER allow their pets in bed with them. No matter who you sleep with, dog or cat, or, lack thereof, Sealy wishes you continued sweet dreams!
