I am trying to get my former feral accustomed to sleeping in the house since it's cold, and also because he will eventually be an indoor cat so I am weaning him from the great outdoors. Well he is an aggressive player and he especially likes to bite although he plays claws out a lot too. For some reason when I try to sleep he starts biting/clawing me--only playfully--but I can't get him to stop. It seems everytime I close my eyes he does this. I sleep from maybe if I'm lucky 4-6am, but then he wakes me up by pouncing on me and biting. I can't lock him out because when he is indoors he is only permitted in my bedroom as the other people living here are freaked out by indoor animals. I refuse to give up but I'm going to die from not sleeping anymore!! Is there anything I can do? It's not like he's lacking in playtime, I play with him all the time and when he's outside he's playing constantly..
