Where did your kittens sleep?

Is it cruel to leave a 9 week old kitten downstairs so that we don't get woken up by her or will she feel abandoned?

Kittens sleep down the front of your pyjama top.

Dems de rulez.

My last kittens slept curled up on my pillow. They were sisters and beautiful.

My two sleep on the sofa downstairs. They're not allowed in bedrooms.

Downstairs, but there was two of them.

Doesn't seem to have damaged them unduly.

Mine sleeps in kitchen too overnight, but he gets lots of love and cuddles throughout the day. Mine is 9 weeks old too. I think they sleep 20 hours out of 24 at this age. Depends. Does your kitty seem distressed? Mine is ok with arrangement.

In bed with me. smile

AlexaAmbidextra Thu 09-Nov-17 22:45:51

Oh need you ask? Snuggled up with me of course. Every one of 'em for the past 45 years. grin

In my bed.

Mine have all slept with me and dp or the dcs

Do they not pee and poo on you?

I have a cat 2 yes old...got when 5 months and already litter trained...and a stupid dog...

Would love a kitten but only experience of dealing with puppies..

We managed one night of trapping them downstairs when the first kittens came home. They cried all night.

From then on all cats have slept on cushions at the end of the bed - luckily I'm a shortarse!

Aww but this is the best bit of having a kitten! They are so lovely they come and snuggle with you to keep warm. So jealous

My cat came litter trained when I bought him. They said he was 12 weeks but the vet thinks he was 8. They learn straight away.

She’s far from a kitten (she’s nearly 10) but she likes to be close and always has been.

When ours were kittens we foolsihly decided our bedroom was the safest place for them to sleep. It probably would have been had they actually slept but instead they woke up into manic night time fiends! We have a brother and a sister, they were up blinds, in wardrobes, digging to Australia in the litter tray, wrestling on on our pillows, biting feet etc etc etc . I honestly got more sleep with my new borns! Any future kittens will be shut in the furthest away room from ours! (Saying that they do get sleep very nicely snuggled up on our bed 😊)

nightshade Thu 09-Nov-17 23:27:15

Will they go downstairs to a litter tray at that age garden geek?

Justbookedasummmerholiday Thu 09-Nov-17 23:30:09

Dcat 1 on top bunk with dd 1 and dcat 2 on the bottom bunk with dd 2.
Still do 5 years later!
That's wot bedz is 4!!

They haven’t in my own experience, nightshade. If they’re caught short, they just get out of bed, use their tray and come back to bed.

missladybird Fri 10-Nov-17 06:33:26

I'm worried I'll roll over and squash her if she sleeps with me but I don't think I'll be able to sleep knowing she's alone downstairs. I pick her up later, so excited I've woken up at 6.30 on my day off!

Papergirl1968 Fri 10-Nov-17 08:47:45

Dcat slept downstairs for the first night or possibly two nights when he arrived as a 12 week old kitten. Then I took him to bed with the full intention of bringing him down when I’d finished reading. It didn’t happen...‭
I worried about squashing but you’re kind of aware they’re there.
Pics please!

Ours slept locked in the kitchen with a dog bed & all things he needed provided.

He was 17 weeks though when we got him. He did cry the first night.

Marcine Fri 10-Nov-17 09:47:34

At 9 weeks mine slept in a cardboard box in the kitchen - she cried the first night then was fine. From 12 weeks she slept on one of those radiator hammock beds.

I’ve not squashed one yet. (And I’m a restless sleeper.) I think that it’s as Papergirl said. Your brain is aware that they’re there even in the deepest slumber. smile
