Nemsis just loves licking us in the face at 3 o'clock in the morning. Then she starts nibbling, then back to licking. She and Blix come to sleep with us at night. We put them in their beds (which is in our bedroom) but they never stay there. Their 4 months now, and I'd hate to shut the door on them or have them sleep in another room (maybe that's the right thing to do). I'd hate to wake up, go downstairs and have our living room, dining room and our kitchen turned upside down cause they had one of the "crazy" episode. Any idears ?

    Donny and Marie's mommy here: We were faced with the same problem and worse: they thought playing chase on the bed (and us) and pouncing on our feet were great fun at 3 am! We chose to close the bedroom door to keep our sanity and sleep, knowing we could be in for a "surprise" every morning. We minimized damage (but not always the surprises) by securing or hiding anything fragile, small and moveable, papers, etc. before we went to bed. We still had to deal with some surprises in the morning but at least nothing important or valuable went missing (except maybe the shift key on the keyboard when they dropped it onto the floor and Marie probably picked it up and hid it). Unfortunately there's no ideal solution, just picking a lesser evil. There are two good things that come out of this: if they are tired of playing chase, they'll just sleep, b/c they don't have an audience (ie. you) to attract attn to themselves. And they get less crazy when they get older. Donny and Marie calmed down quite a bit after 6 mths (give or take). Hope it gives you some ideas and reassurance. Good luck!
