    Text - Your cat chose to be with you. I don't think it matters much that you were sleeping. Your cat must have found a lot of trust and comfort in you You took her in and gave her a good life for her WHOLE life! What a privilege. And you might not have realized it, but you gave her comfort in her death as well. Still have a question? Ask your own! What is your question?
