I hope to adopt a kitty soon I miss my old guy Spike he died 1.5 years ago but it still makes me so sad, I had him for 17 years.

I love seeing all these pics Sicy, those catwalks are great they would be perfect for my mom's cat Heiny

cydewaze,
Siamese are known for their excessive loud meowing, I think you are SOL.

One thing you can do is try to play with her very hard right before you go to sleep, hoping she will sleep through the night. Wear her out as much as you can. If you have the laser pointer, that gets em tired real fast. I still get woken up sometimes at 5am by Saki licking my earlobes lol.

Worf (my siamese cat) woke me up several times last night .

She's lucky she's cute .

I agree with Sicy. Try to wear her out by playing the evening before you go to sleep.

What happens is this: Sometime in the morning she'll just decide I need to be awake, and she'll start making noise and walking all over me - including on my face. If I put her outside the door, she'll moan at like 80 decibels. I don't want to have to lock her in another bedroom, and even if I did, the moaning is so loud I'd still be able to hear it. The only other option would be to lock her in the downstairs bathrooom with her litterbox and some water, but I don't want to confine her to that small an area. Over the weekend I successfully used earplugs, but I can't do that during the week or I wouldn't be able to hear the alarm.

Basically I've been limited to 4-5 hrs of sleep each night this week, and it's causing me to nod off at my desk in the afternoons. I don't know what to do. Anyone have any ideas?
When our cat's start acting up we just put them outside! But if she's an indoor cat then try putting on a small light on in the apartment and that might calm her down. Coz that's what we do sometimes when it's too cold here to let our cat's out, and it usually works. Don't ask me why though!
Say "HI" to Jess from me and thank her for the e-mail!

Paul, when are they fed? I feed Rosie in the AM and PM and she usually sleeps until I get up. Good luck!

We're keeping Eden out of the cage, in the cat room. She's taking the meds for now since I suppose we have nothing to lose by trying (although she's been REALLY groggy and walks really stiff). Maybe she will just have to stay in the cat rooms forever, since she doesn't pee on the floor and I've seen her use those litter boxes. At least two rooms are better than a cage.
My friend with the 8 cats tried Amytryptiline/Elavil and the same thing happened...what you need is Prozac, that's what helped her cats, and no side effects like this.

play real hard before bedtime and a large meal of canned food right before bedtime too.

I had a cat that acted the same , hard to find out exactly what they want at that time of the morning. It stopped after a couple of nights of harsh words and a small feeding before I went to bed. If your cats fussy about the freshness of the wet food then try some dry food left out overnight. my other cat gizmo (see journal) is now 16 and justs wants attention some nights and wraps himself around my head, most of the time I dont notice till i am waking up, other nights he yowls and we asked the vet about it. the vet said either going senile or he is just letting no one in particular know that he is home and its his turf. When I turn off all the lights and go to bed he has a routine; some food then a drink , goes for a pee, yowls his head off , then goes to bed.

I wish I knew why Mia was so chatty.... I play with her when I get home, but she's always mewing for me and at night she constantly jumps on me and cries.

I hate it.

Lies, when I put cats on Elavil I usually start with 1/2 tablet once a day, in the evening so if they are drowsy the worst of it should be at night when everyone is sleeping.

Paul, you might have to consider not letting the cats have access to your bedroom at night. Tough love may work too, if you completely ignore her pestering you - no rewarding with food/breakfast until YOU are ready to get up, no scolding, no petting - NO response (because any sort of attention, good or bad, can reinforce the unwanted behavior). The other suggested ideas are good too, for a bedtime snack and extra playtime in the evening.
