My cat is driving me insane!

Many of you have seen my videos of Chewie and think he is the cutest thing. In fact, some of you have told me that you would love a cat like him. Well....after this week, you can have him! He is driving me insane.

Don't get me wrong, I love my cat. He is very sweet and cuddly. He snuggles and has this really cute snotty sounding purr when he is really happy.

I have been trying to monitor how much he eats because he is starting to get a little heavy and has a kitty belly. According to the new bag of food, he should be getting about 3/4 - 1 cup of food a day. SO....I am using a 1/4 measuring cup and feeding him 3 times a day. Well, that was the plan, he's getting fed about 4 times a day because he keeps whining. When I say whining, please translate that to mean - caterwauling, jumping on top of me, trying to get into his food in the kitchen, and doing things he knows he isn't supposed to do. I'm sure you know what I mean if you have children. He does that thing where they think any attention is good attention. Chewie's particular bag of tricks includes chewing on my shelves, chewing on the metal handle that opens my window, licking my pictures that are accessible to him when he squeezes his head in a drawer, etc.

He does this, like clockwork, at 5 AM in the morning.....every day. I am trying to not "reward" him when he is being a pain so I have to wait until he shuts up for at least 2 minutes before I feed him. At 5 AM, those minutes seem to last forever. Why can't he be good like his brother, Tigger?
