He taps my face with his paw as if he is saying, "Time to get up and feed me!" which only produces a groan as I drift off back to sleep.

And that was no matter what position I was sleeping in. So if I was on my side, she'd be on my hip, if I was on my back, she'd sleep on my crotch or stomach, if I was on my stomach, she'd curl up on my lower back or butt.

And when I would turn over, she would stand up, walk like she was walking on a log and settle down as soon as I did without getting off of me.

one behind my knees, and the third on the lower right corner of the bed.

Always the same cats in the same places.

... but in the winter, she would snuggle in under the sheets on my chest
with her face right in mine.

This is where she'll sleep when I'm in bed. Otherwise, it's my lap. She will sprawl across it, with her front legs sticking out like Superman's arms when he's flying. That is where she is now...
