Feline Sleep Disruption Syndrome

Mackie, now fully recovered from his separation anxiety from my trip, has swung into full-on Sleep Disruption Syndrome. This happens in the summer months, and never in the winter when it is cold and wet.

It manifests itself in an hourly yowling fest that wakes me up out of a sound sleep. It's purpose is to make so much ruckus that I HAVE to let him in or let him out. He just wants to ram around at night and he sees no reason why I can't comply with his every whim. I don't mind letting him out once during the night, but last night he went in and out more than 3 times.

I guess there is just too much excitement in the summer air. And I, stodgey human that I am, just want to SLEEP through it all.
