I have just gotten my first indoor cat, Teddy, a week ago, he is a 10 mo old Bengal. He will not let me sleep through the night. I wouldn't mind having him share my bed however, it seems like always wants to play or wants active attention when I am ready to sleep or already sleeping. He will walk all over me and then put his face on mine and rub against my face and end up laying down on my head or sitting on my shoulder and kneeding his needle sharp claws into my skin. I am currently staying at my parents' house until I find my own place within the next month. my "bed room" is just a walled off area in a larger mini apartment type area in the basement and it isn't completely closed off. If i shut the doors, he jumps the wall which is about a foot from the ceiling. Also, if for some reason he decides not to jump the wall he will make alot of noise or scratch at the doors. He gets plenty of exercise as I have three sisters who play with him all the time as well as myself. I just don't know what to do and I am suffering from sleep deprivation. Please help.
