I totally agree with the article sleeping with feet uncovered and have slept in this manner for many years, especially during the Summer months in South Africa.

If I sleep with my feet out, my youngest cat will lick my toes non stop. I don't know what the attraction is. I've had many cats over the years, but never one so insistent on doing this.

I get in bed, both feet are covered and I am asleep in under 30 seconds. I'm very lucky.
