I recently adopted a one year old female from the SPCA. She is spade (not sure if that matters or not in this case). However, I work all day and come home around 12PM. Since I'm not home to play with her during the day, she sleeps through it until I get home. I often have to get up early in the morning for work. Unfortunatly, I only have a little bit of time to play with her and 'hang out' with her before I head off to bed. She lays in the bed with me and will fall asleep for a little bit. Around 3 or 4 am (never fails!) she wakes up, and starts meowing really loud. She will play with everything, running all around the house. Ive tried just having my bedroom door closed and letting her sleep in just that room, but she does the same things. She also plays in litter box for the longest time (she likes the sound of the litter rubbing against the walls of the litter box) and will scratch at it for what seems like forever. This only happens in the middle of the night/early mornings. After that she'll scratch at the carpet. I do have a scratching post, but she prefers the carpet. So, to make this into a question, Is there a way I can make her stop being loud in the middle of the night, and instead, play with her toys during the day so shes tired at night and will sleep, instead of keeping me up?!
