My new kitten, Slug, constantly nips at my face. This is extremely frustrating, especially when I am trying to sleep. On more than one occasion she has caused me to be so tired the next morning that I sleep through my alarm and miss class. They are always done in a 'sweet manner'. She purrs and tries to push her nose into mine, then she tries to lick the inside of my nose (I HATE this) She licks at my lips and ears and nips at them all. I realize these are love bites but the only love I need from her at night is for her to leave me alone.
She doesn't seem to get the hint when I roll over as she immediately redirects to the other side, back in front of my face and continues on. I've tried covering my face but this makes it hard to breathe when I'm trying to sleep. I've tried shoving her away and she comes right back. I've pushed her off the bed, and she comes right back, I've swatted her on the nose and she comes right back.
Short of throwing her out of the room, HOW DO I MAKE HER STOP?!! Mind you she wakes me up from sleep and causes me fatigue, I don't have the mentality or energy upon being woken to spray her with a water bottle or redirect her with a toy. Is there a simple solution? Will she grow out of it? I'd like to be able to comfortably cuddle with my kitten someday.
