March 3, 2007 1:02pm CST
its been a year and two kittens since kitty, our cat .. we are very attached to her .. and now, sid and nancy .. her two kittens .. we moved to a penthouse on the top floor of a building and now kitty has nowhere to go .. and the kittens have yet to set paw on grass .. so they vent .. they vent by playing .. playing hard .. very hard .. which is fine .. and the whole nocturnal thing and all .. they play at night .. night when we need to sleep so we can get up early enough to make it to class .. its keeping us up .. we're losing more and more hours of sleep each night .. and its been making me want to give them all away .. what do we do now that we are attached to them? i hate cats .. ive never liked cats .. but .. i love my 3 cats .. just sucks thinking how life would be like without them .. if there are ways to get them to behave .. i'd be really pleased .. but there seems to be no way to unspoil a cat ..

No, there is no way to unspoil your cats. I have 4 cats and I don't know what I would do without them. I would say, no, don't give them away - your place will be so empty without them. Have you tried to close your bedroom door to keep them out at night? If your cats are like mine, this won't really work very well - my cats hate to have any doors closed and make a major fuss over closed doors. You might try to use a water mister (spray bottle) to disciple them. Maybe give them a sprits in the face every time they wake you up. My cats are very good at night, and do not disturb us. They are older cats and like to spend most of their time sleeping. Another idea is to play with them just before you are going to go to bed to try to tire them out. I hope you can find some way to keep your cats. My husband wasn't a cat person until he met me and my cats. Now he wouldn't live without a cat in his life.
