Re: Help! Cat won't let me sleep at night!
I used to, while half asleep grab my cat and hold her/him like a teddy bear and go to sleep, they would either give in and sleep to or go run off. I did this a few times and that seemed to work. I also put a thick blanket at the foot of the bed over my feet so that they could still play and attack my feet but I felt nothing. I got my kitties around 9-12 months I think, and it took about a year and a lot of sleepless nights before they stopped. But just like anything else you get used to it.
You can also take the ignorning appraoch. As in trying to lay still and ignore it. If your cat thinks your toes wont react to it, they may find something else to play with. You could also play with them before you go to bed to tire them out. I used a laser pointer. Id have them running up and down the hallways, hoping off of walls doing some matrix moves. They were definitly too tired to play with my toes and often would just snuggle up with me in bed.
