Damn kitties

They chase each other around the apartment all night. Jump on me in chase or pursuit...all very cute stuff.

So i finally get up, and what do they do? SLEEP!

I gotta get these buggers on my schedule.

When they grow a little bigger you can make slippers outta them. I'm waiting to make a scarf outta mine.

Lots of kittens and young cats do that. As they get older, they usually adjust to the waking/sleeping schedules of the people in the house.

My two year olds sure haven't. I take that back, only one of them. He thinks I need to get up at 4:00 seven days a week. He'll get on the headboard and jump in the middle of me, walk all over me and try to claw his way under me until I get up. Not my wife, just me. Then he finds a spot and goes to sleep! ANd he'll let me go back to bed too. I think it's just to prove he's the boss.

TQ, your cats are adorable.

Mine like nature shows, especially with birds. They go around back trying to figure out how to get the birds.

Mine just likes to lay on me and purr and knead my shoulders until I get up.

Those are some cute kitties. They're like the exact opposite of mine(he's solid black).

Zeo, the 12 year old Sumo cat at our house, gets locked in a room by himself at night. We would never get any sleep otherwise. I think he sleeps all day while we are at work and wants to play at night.

SWMBO decided that he needed to have a collar since he slips outside on a regular basis. I told her I was not going to get him some sort of sissy collar. It had to be a macho, he-cat kinda collar. I found it at PetSmart: an orange and black Harley Davidson collar with a black bell on it.

our kitties slowly got better.

they used to start playing around 3:30-4am every morning. streaking around the apartment, bumping into things, etc.

we would usually try to grab one of them and put her\him in the bathroom to seperate them. then, of course, the scratching at the door started, and if we didn't answer right away they would ram the door with their bodies making all sorts of noise.

then, slowly, they started to chill out a little. it was gradual, though, over the course of a year i'd say. we also took their toys away every night before we went to bed and returned them after we got up. that seemed to help.

now, they almost always sleep right when we go to bed and start playing around 7ish. it's not perfect, but it's sure as hell better than 3:30 in the damn morning.

I don't particularly. They're not friendly enough for me for the most part, and I don't like the way they respond to contact. Dogs for me, I want a pet I can take hiking or swimming.

I used to share your opinion. Then my Avatar of Evil decided I was to be her person. Major paradigm shift... I still love dogs, but I appreciate cats now. This is good, since my life isn't a healthy one at present for a canine to be a part of it.
