Ugh. It's way too early for me to be awake, but our two MONSTERS
have decided that they wanted to start waking up an hour early. So now, instead of 6:00 breakfast, they want to wake up at 5:00.
What's aggrivating is that when they do wake up in the AM, Binx goes over to the bedroom window and starts pawing at the blinds and curtain...because he likes the sound?? He'll just keep doing that!! AND Skeeter, jumps up ON TOP of the t.v. that sits atop a little bookshelf and just sits there like he's king of the hill. If we don't take this as his sign that he's ready for US to get up, then HE starts pawing at the blinds and curtains!!!!!!!!! AH!!!
We try to kick them out, but Binx starts scratching and picking at the carpet and then, if we don't answer, starts his "Prrrrow? Prrrrrrrrrrrrrow? Prrrow Prrow? Prrooooooooooow?" GRRRR!!!!!!
I am just too stressed out with finishing up grad school/job hunting/and everything else to have to get up so early in the morning with only 5-6 hours of sleep. I need them to just do their own thing while we catch a few more Zzzs.
I just don't know what to do.
We tried locking them in the front bedroom where their litter box is, but they were picking and jumping around...I try to ignore them, but that just makes my heart race and I can't get back to sleep if that happens. So, like this morning, I just get out of bed.
Question: We've been giving them dinner at 5:00 or so, and then a snack of a 1/4 cup of hard food at our bedtime (11:00). Does giving them a snack at night make them more hungry in the morning because their digestive system doesn't take a break? I know that happens to me if I eat late at night. Maybe we should forego the night snack??
Please...any suggestions would be useful. I'm so worn out.
