Usually at bed time, she will roam around the house and then eventually sleep on either my bed or my mums, snuggling up to my legs. However, in the last few months, she wakes me up between 3 and 5am wanting to be pet or kissed. She won't stop purring (quite loudly) and if I stop patting her or ignore her, she bites my hand or reaches a hand out to scratch at my face (softly enough to not hurt but hard enough for me to wake up).
I've tried ignoring her, turning the other way, hiding my hands and arms out of her reach, but she won't stop! I love that she is affectionate and loves me, but I need my sleep! I have to wake up at 6am for work and being woken up an hour before my alarm is driving me crazy.
I would lock her out of my room but I feel like that is too cruel and her meowing and scratching would wake up the rest of the house, instead of just me.
If anyone could help I would really appreciate it!
(I am sure this has been asked before but I'm new here so apologies in advance)
