Yep I'm talking about the bedroom antics of the kitties!

For the first few weeks we kept the kittens out if the bedroom, but they recently started scratching the door and pulling the carpet and being a rented house don't want them demolishing the place!
They used to start scratching anywhere between 5-6am.

So recently we've let them have free run of the house and the first few nights they both curled up on my legs quite happily, but now isabelle has taken to sleeping a couple hours then walking all over me, purring in my ear, or running round possessed :rolleyes: this would be normally be ok, but not at 2,3,4,5 am!!

any idea how to get her to sleep longer? I'm feeling like a new parent with a new born baby! LOL

My Dora comes up onto my bed in the early hours,tramples all over me,nips my face and then when she's sure i am awake settles down to have a snooze,usually on top of me. Its one of those cat things i'm afraid.

Try feeding before bedtime, makes my boy bo bozed. But he still wakes me around 5:30am. Welcome to the wonderful world of kittenhood. Soon passes (I hope) 

Seb has come to bed with us from day one. His first couple of nights he was very good, not a peep out of him :) Then he started running around the bedroom like a loony, biting feet and the usual kitten stuff and me being woken up and getting up at 2-3am.

I started to play with him later in the evening about an hour before we went to bed and also feed him after the playing. This defiantly helped him settle down and go to sleep, he was sleeping later too :)

I still get woken up between 4am and 5am which I don't mind as I need to be up at 5.

I've only recently started letting Henry in my room at night and he usually settles down and goes to sleep when I turn my light off, but he always wakes me up around 3am for some attention! He nudges my hand and purrs in my ear until I wake up and give his a scratch under his chin and around his ears. If I ignore him, he'll give my fingers a little nip. He'll settle down again after 10mins of petting.

The good thing for me is that since I've started letting him in my room, he's not getting me up so early in the morning. He used to sit outside my bedroom door crying for me to get up from about 6am. When I'm at work, this wasn't too bad as I get up at 6.30, but when I'm not at work, I didn't want to be woken up this early! Most mornings when I get up, Henry isn't in my room, he's either in the living room or in the hall, but he doesn't feel the need to cry! I think it's because he know's where I am and can come into my room whenever he wants. :D
