kitten wakes up SUPER early

It is 6:35AM and Simba woke up and keeps on crying. I checked if she had food and water and everything was fine so i put her back in her room but she still wont go back to sleep? Is it normal for kittens to wake up so early? And if so should i just ignore it?

Could it be that we fed her cooked chicken for the first time?

It's normal. Jasper used to wake me up by running on me at 3 in the morning. It stopped after about two weeks as he learned my routine.

I doubt what she ate the night before caused her to wake up earlier than usual.

Perhaps she heard a noise outside or someone flushed a toilet and woke her.

Neelix is quiet in his room unless he hears people moving around (either in my own apartment or closet doors slamming in the neighboring apartments) then he howls his little head off to come out.

I can tell you that if you run to her room and open the door each time she cries you're just training her to cry constantly. She'll learn that when she is noisy someone comes to give her attention.

Hey mowmow!

You are so right! I did walk past her room and make some noises which is most likely the reason. And about her crying.. So its best only to open her room door when she isnt crying?

PS: i love the name Mowmow

It depends on the kitten I guess. If I waited for Neelix to shut his mouth he'd never get out of his room... or eat.... or get pet.... or breath. He's just a mouthy little guy who is constantly meowing.

Ideally though yes, I wouldn't let her out until she's quiet.

Maybe she's young enough to still be on her old litter's schedule? Up at 6:00 a.m. to play...

Our boys used to wake up at 5-6 am. On the weekends when they slept with us, they would play with the blinds, our feet, each other, anything they could find to be annoying. Or, if they weren't in our room (weekdays) they would wake up and meow constantly until we got up to feed them.

They sleep with us every night now (we had some time of work where they got used to sleeping with us and we couldn't kick them out again). They are such good boys now - if they do wake up early they just go sit on the windowsil or keep snuggling with us until we get up.

As TranquilityBlue said, I think once they get to learn the routine they are fine
