For the last 5 days I have been unrelenting. The animals are not allowed to come into the bedroom and lie in the bed with us. The dogs have 'got it' and are no longer making pests of themselves in the morning. Barbie asked to go out for her poo at 6:45am and then didn't bother us when I went back to bed. The cats still keep trying. Nic didn't shut them away last night and both Mittens and Froufrou had a go at waking us up! Froufrou is the worst because she doesn't give up and she claws at the carpet. Laundry for kitties!!!!
