Well, I recently got a new kitten, Rupert, and for the most part, he's been a joy. Unfortunately, his antics at night in my bed have simply proved too much for me to handle. I simply can't get a good night's rest with his constant waking and subsequent decisions to pounce on my feet, or sometimes if he is too hyper--my head! When tired, he's quite gentle, which is why I originally chose to let him sleep with me. But now that I've moved everything he needs out of the bedroom, he seems to be having some trouble adjusting. He sits at the door and meows almost constantly. I can't help but feel guilty since it's such a desperate-sounding, almost crying-like meow (very kittenish.) I really don't want to respond in any way as a result of his meowing--I don't want him to start thinking that meowing and scratching at the door can let him in. Any ideas on how to get him to settle down and rest--or at least, go and do something else at night instead of sit at my door trying desperately to get in? I want to be able to sleep at night, and I simply can't do that with Rupert--at the same time though, I want him to be happy and comfy too.
