And now they finally sleep ...

Crumpet is going to be four months old on Monday. She is a spaz of nocturnal energy.

At night Morgan sleeps at the foot of our bed. Crumpet likes to attack his tail or legs which gets them playing/fighting. Or she likes to jump on our bed attacking our toes. Or she'll stick her face in my face and purr.

As much as we love the kitties, we were looking forward to being away for a couple days and sleeping through the night for the first time since we got Crumpet on June 3. Sweet!

Last night we were back to reality ... the kitties wouldn't let us sleep. I sprayed them with water when they played/fought. I even tried putting them in the hall and closing the door on them but they tried to open it by sticking their paws under it and pulling.

I finally gave up about 5am and went to our spare room because I knew they would follow me. At least Gord could get some sleep. But when Crumpet wasn't attacking Morgan who was sleeping on the futon next to me, she was chewing on paper and boxes.

So I moved out to the couch in the living room about 6am. That seemed to settle them down because they both slept on me for a while.

It's now noon and look who are finally settling down!

It's a good thing they are cute :)

LOL! I'm just glad our kittens spend the night in my daughter's room. When she complained that they kept her awake all night I just grinned and said, "Welcome to motherhood!"

Cats can be worse than children! We got a Siamese kitten several years ago and we put her in the laundry room for the night from day one, because we were not looking forward to what you are experiencing. When it was time for bed, we told her and she went in there and she went to bed too, or not, we never knew, thank goodness. And she never destroyed the room either.
Hugs, Cindy

I love so much cat. I have Lola. I love her so much.

Since yesterday I am very saddened by the death of the lion Ariel, he became very ill after suffering a terrible accident.
