I am done! Done! Done! Done! And it feels so good. I will not be going to the malls now for any reason until after January 2/2006. I have everything including stocking stuffers and it feels so good!
In addition I bought that rotten cat* a crate. He is waking me up a dozen times or more every night. Some of you suggested feeding him before bed. I wish it were that simple. He goes nutso if there is 10 pieces of kibble left in his bowl because he knows it is getting to the empty stage. He sits just around the corner in the hallway from where his bowl is and darts out and almost trips me until I fill it again. As soon as I fill it he will eat the gratuitous piece of cat food then walk away.
I know he isn't trying to be a bad cat. In fact he is very affectionate at night and that is the reason he wakes me up. He wants snuggles! If I ignore him he doesn't really bite per se. He just puts his teeth to any exposed body part and sits there biting gently. He also walks up and down my body. He will fall asleep on me know matter what way I am sleeping. Being the slave human I am I don't want to move because I don't want to wake him and disturb his sleep. I know, I should just push him off the bed, and I do, but he just looks at it as a game!
So I bought a kitty crate that I know he is going to hate. I am going to put it at the end of the bed so he will be warm and not be locked away from everyone. I will let you know how it goes!
*meant in the most affectionate way possible. I love that little beast.

Update- After much meowing, growling, whining, crying, clawing and carrying on (like I had left him outside in the cold in 40 below weather) Norbert settled in and went to sleep. It really is a nice cozy little crate, just his size with a soft baby blanket to keep him warm. (Ok who wants to bet that I let him by morning because I feel sorry for him?)
Another Update- This evening I caught Norbert resting in his crate with the door wide open. I think he likes it!

Great for you on finishing your shopping - I've only purchased one thing so far. This is the worst I have ever been in years past. As for that little Norbert, I'm happy to hear that he settled in well, I hope you made it through the night too. :)

I had one of those. The little sucker tore up my carpet after I kicked him out of the room and shut the door.

I woke up and tripped over the seam that starts directly underenath the door so now whenever I close it, it gets caught.

Then the brat had the nerve to run away. Oh well, hopefully he found someone else to terrorize. I did love him though.

YAY. I am glad that Norbert likes the cage and that your shopping is all done. I don't get paid until the 16th, so I'll have to do all mine that weekend. YUCK.

I might have to try getting a cage for my own Ollie. He is just becoming awful at night too. I'm jealous you have your shopping done.
