1. Prepared to provide physical comfort in the pre-sleep period. Caressing around ears, under chin and tummy preferred.
2. Prepared to work around whereever I should choose to sleep in the bed - contortionists preferred.
3. Prepared to be leaned on.
4. Excellent at falling asleep and sound sleeper - must not toss and turn.
5. Exothermic body preferred.
6. Must like being stood on in the early morning and getting up to let me go out for a morning whizz.
7. Any reduction of these attributes will lead to fickle bed-hopping. Deal with it.
