Stop inviting the cat to play when it comes to bedtime, the goal so that the cat understands he must also be prepared to sleep.
2. Invite the cat to play several times a day
Cats are spoiled animals and always need attention. If you get less attention, he will “disturb” even when you want to rest. Invite to play several times a day. Games that can drain energy for 10-15 minutes are enough to make a cat calm.

Provide a snack or dry food at a food dispenser. When a cat wake up and feel hungry they won’t wake you up. Average of cats wake up in the early morning.
4. Neat the cat bed
