The cats and I have a pretty regular routine at night. We go upstairs, I read for an hour while they settle down and fall asleep. Jack will join us if I let him stay.
Jack will pretty much just sleep. He may change positions once or twice , but that is all.
For Tiger, any attention is better than no attention at all. He does things purposely to wake me up, knowing he will get a negative reaction from me, such as biting Motor, scratching the window screen, etc.
But Motor does not want to go downstairs with him. I think Tiger plays too rough with Motor and so Motor would rather stay with me. The last few nights, I have wanted Tiger out of my bedroom after his antics. When I come back to my room to get Motor, he is curled up in a ball like he is sleeping. And so, push over that I am, I let Motor stay, which means I have to let Tiger back up again.
I get up and down about 3-5 times every night with them. It's exhausting.
I know, I know, easy solution. Keep them out of the bedroom at night. When I get tired enough, I do, for a night. Then we start the ritual all over again.
What is your nightly sleeping ritual?
