Why won’t your FH lock them out of the room???  That seems like the clear solution here.

Subscribe to the Jackson Galaxy school.  Wear them out before you go to bed.  Play with them at night until they are tired and they will snooze when you are!

@hiroshymatetrastar:  LOL reminds me of my precious kitty… awww. We kick him out of the bedroom when he gets annoying. He started a new annoying habit – scratching on the door after he’s kicked out. Luckily I think we put a stop to that – he was wanting us to feed him early in the morning and figured that would wake us. We chased him around w. the pillow and didn’t give in to his food request for a couple of nights, and then set up the auto feeder to dispense food (just a little) at 2 am and 4 am. He seems to have stopped the scratching now.

@hiroshymatetrastar:  Get your Darling Husband a rice pack that you can warm up or a heating pad and lock them out of the room! We unfortunately had to do this to our daughter (3 year old cat) because she wanted us up in the middle of the night and would CHEW like a dog on our wood head board from under the bed. GL

Keep a squirt gun or bottle next to the bed. We love snuggling with our cat too, but she isn’t allowed to bite, nibble, lick, or scratch. Hence the squirt bottle. Works well for us.

@hiroshymatetrastar:  Oh I hear ya. I’ve got one who is so obsessed with me, she has to be ON me all the time. She has to lay with my at night, then goes and does her thing around the apartment. Come 5am, she’s climbing over me, back and forth, back and forth until I get up (My alarm doesn’t go off until 6). 


Then we have the other one who we adopted back in February. She’s interesting. She was a stray before we adopted her so she is always very alert, playful but can still be a bit of a beeyatch. She loves to walk right in front of you so you trip over her too, did that this morning! Uhhhhhhh.

But I love them, so much.

– Locking them out of the room will probably make them destroy something. Both of our cats will claw at the carpet.

– Tiring them out is bullshit. We tried this when the younger one was a kitten because she has severe anxiety and would cry through the night. We would play and play until she was panting and heaving…and then she would get up and play some more.

We hide the little one’s favorite toys at night. She’s three, but will still drag her favorites (or random assorted non-toys like travel tissue packs) into the bedroom and cry and cry. The big one is a biter and likes to purr in your ear, stick his whiskers in your nose, bite, lick, etc. because he wants to be fed. He gets fed right before we go to bed, and does it a lot less now (but still does it sometimes, at which point he gets pushed off the bed).

Are they neutered?  If not, that may help.
