Sounds like my Cleveland when he was a kitten. I couldn't stand the little cries at my door so would let him in only to get a severe pouncing and toe nipping but now he's a big snugglepuss at night. I used to give him a very energetic play session then a feed before bed and that helped to settle him down.
My mum laughs at me and says I sound like a mother. I remember saying I would never cope with another kitten again, I'd get a grown up cat but strangely those feelings are fading away
