Noisy Roomie

Percy has been keeping me awake lately. When I go to bed,he begins to make a racket. He'll 'MEOW'. And if that doesn't work,he'll begin to knock things down. And if THAT doesn't work,he'll find something to rip up. Last night,I gently told him "Daddy has to get some shut-eye. Go play with your toys or sumthin." For 15 minutes,it was quiet. Then he began loudly clawing at cupboard 51 (off limits). I caved in and gave him a saucer of milk(I poured me a night-cap,too.) I slept great after that,but why does he seem to want to keep me up?

Because he wants to plaaaaaay! Try to get him to do some good exercise before bed time so he doesn't have all the excess energy.

Re: Noisy Roomie

My girls go nuts when we turn out the lights, so we started giving them some food right when we go to bed. We give them three small meals a day, and human bedtime seems to be a perfect time to feed them. Most nights it distracts them enough that they stay downstairs and play. If they come and bother us in bed and tossing them off doesn't work, we'll go downstairs and give them one of their favorite stuffed mice, and that usually does the trick.

But you definitely want to play with the cat in the evening and wear him out - that works better than anything else!

Cleo gets her second wind around 5 a.m. and I have to boot her out of the bedroom.
