HI
I'm a new cat mummy and need a little help. My baby is a 9 week old boy who can be as sweet as sugar and then turn into evil kitty He's taken a turn of biting and nothing seems to stop him, especially at night time. He'll wake you up about every 2 hours at night by pouncing and chewing on you. It is starting to really tire us out. No matter how much we play before bedtime he is still up at all hours. I'm worried he's younger than we originally thought and has missed out on something with his litter mates. Any ideas?

Sorry, but I think your kitty is just being a kitty. I have one that's four months old and still waking us up to play at night. I make sure there's one of his toys on the bed when I go to sleep. If he wakes me up biting, I give him the toy and he plays with it instead (he's easily distracted!) and I go back to bed. One major thing, don't let your kitty use your fingers to bite on unless you want your kitty to always be a biter. Hope you get some sleep!
ps.. what about getting another kitten for him to play with? I know it might not be an option for you, but it has worked for me they're always cuddling and playing and keep each other company when we're gone.

Maybe you could sell it to your husband by telling him he would get more sleep. Just wait a few more days until he is really sleep deprived and that will sound really good. Try getting your kitty toys he can play with by himself, and maybe he will occupy himself while you sleep.

Just to add fuel to the fire.....a second kitty doesn't cost a whole lot more than one kitty and it will keep the other company! And if you do get another, the better time is when they are small. Things gets more tense when they are older......

If it makes you feel better...my 5 year old kitty STIll wakes me up at night.....usually around 5am by scratching the wall. And if I try to spray her with water, she leaves the room and does it in the hallway where I can't reach her. This will continue til I get up to feed her. Little brat!!

What is up with cats and 5 am schedules?!!my kitty wakes me up every morning, 5 am on the dot. He gets downright viscious about it too. One incident I opened my eyes and at that moment he poked me with a paw. I wore an icepack for 2 days!! I know it's not intentional, he just thinks I'm the laziest human he's ever had!

My cat is the same way, likes to play at all hours.
