"THAT STRAY CAT:" - SOME SLEEPING RULES:

So, you're putting your foot down this time, and will NOT
acknowledge that stray cat that has appeared on your porch.
No way, he will NOT be allowed inside, etc.  Let's see...

You said...

--That stray cat will sleep OUTSIDE.

--That stray cat will sleep outside...

 UNLESS it's raining.

--That stray cat will sleep...

in the GARAGE.

--That stray cat will sleep...

in the house but NOT in the bedroom.

--That stray cat will sleep...

in a cardboard box lined with an OLD blanket in a CORNER of the bedroom.

--That stray cat will NOT be allowed to sleep...

IN our bed.

--That stray cat will NOT be allowed to sleep in our bed...
  EXCEPT at the foot.

--That stray cat will NOT be allowed to sleep in our bed...
  UNDER the covers...

UNLESS we're cold.

--That stray cat sleeping under the covers at the foot of the bed...

will NOT be allowed to chew on our feet.

--That stray cat that has a habit of chewing toes when he
  sleeps under the covers at the foot of the bed...

will find that we've taken to wearing our slippers to bed. 
  Oh, well.

(Ha!  Resistance is futile, isn't it!)

I bet in no time "that stray cat" will have total run of
the house, will have his own toys and comfy new bed, and
his own bowl with his new name on it!  (How long can you
call him "that stray cat?" Don't forget the photos on
the refrigerator!)
