My wife is away on business so I decided to leave the bedroom door open Tuesday night and let the cats sleep with me. I do that sometimes when she is away and I always regret it. Chris usually bothers me for a little while and then settles in until around three or four in the morning and then he starts back up with his annoying behavior. Wednesday morning it was three o’clock.
I resisted him for a while. I kept pushing him away or I would pick him up and move him to where another cat was sleeping. (I couldn’t tell who in the dark). My hope was that he would forget about me and bother that other cat. It didn’t work and eventually, he forced me out of bed way too early.
Last night I was tired and closed everyone out so I could get some sleep. That lasted until around four this morning when I heard Chris crying and scratching at the door. This went on until 5:30 when I was again forced out of bed early.
I fed them and went back to bed, not to sleep but just to rest for a few minutes. Chris showed up soon after and immediately started bothering me by biting my nose and scratching me. His breathing was accelerated and he was purring loudly or at least making loud breathing noises. After several minutes of this, I decided to get it on film so at least others could enjoy it.
Don’t get me wrong, I love that Chris is as loving and affectionate as he is. I just wish he could do it less painfully.
he is the feline twin of Phenny… he sleeps on my head (he has 70 lbs now) and to bite in my nose and to give me bitchslaps with his paws is the wake up ritual….
Chris sometimes lies across my neck. He he was 70 pounds he would choke me.

Great idea. Chris can get a job as a nose piercer.
Pretty obvious that Chris has no idea what either “no” or “stop” mean. Secretly, he knows you love this attention and affection which he bestows upon you. Good purr too. You go Chris. We applaud your enthusiasm and persistence. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer
He understands “kitty treats” perfectly fine but “no,” not so much.
OMC this is laugh out loud FUNNY! HILARIOUS!! OMC he is obsessed with you! Had you eaten something earlier to make him keep going for your nose like that? Thank you for sharing, this made my day! You are BEYOND patient!!
My nose has been tasty for eight years. 🙂 Thanks for the great comment.
If we did that, we’d be banned from the bedroom too.
It’s too bad because everyone is banned because of Chris.

That is too funny. He sure is persistent. 🙂
He is like the Energizer Kitty.
Oh my!!! LOL to the max! That is the BEST video I’ve seen in furever. Those are love bites! I love little Christopurr! Such a sweetheart. Love how he grabs your face with his paw to turn it so that he can bite your nose better. He’s one smart little dude and very affectionate! BTW, your nose … I mean your NOs! are very weak … No wonder he pays no attention! Hugs & purrs to you Mr. Chris Cat! 🐈 ❤❣
GREAT video starring Nose Nippin’ Chris! 😺
Thank you. You are right about my NOs. I guess that’s why he doesn’t bother my wife like he bothers me, although he does walk across her head.
Binga is a nose-biter too! My human buries her head under the covers to avoid her when she is being too insistent.
I try that but he reaches in with his claws to pull me out.
“No” and “Stop” are not in Chris’ vocabulary obviously, but we bet “treats” are well known, MOL ! Purrs
I think he hears what he wants to hear. 🙂
That is so hilarious….you’ve always talked about how he loves to bite your nose – now you have it on film…..the boy is nose-obsessed and I imagine all that pawing/chewing/nibbling CAN “get to you” when you’re trying to rest. No wonder you keep them OUTSIDE the bedroom door when possible! LOL
Pam and Teddy too
I should have video on him doing that a long time ago. Actually I think I did but this one shows what I go through at night better. I’ll attach the link to the other video when I’m back at my computer.
Ha! Ha! I won’t complain about my two walking up and down my body and kneading my (covered) shoulder to try to let me know it’s time to feed the kitties! Chris is a hoot!
There is no one like Chris. That’s for sure. 😀
Certainly one of my top ten favorite Internet international kitty celebrities!
Hahaha. Thanks. I never thought of him as an International Celebrity.
That he is, though! Just look at where you have followers. I have no doubt you have people on every continent but Antarctica following you and your kitties. If you are really lucky, you might even have someone on Antarctica! [Once you acknowledge Chris is an international kitty celebrity, you have to give up some of your human rights to assure Chris his rights as a very special kitty! LOL!]
I think we need to keep this between you and me and the rest of the world. 🙂
I’m sure we all can keep a secret. Ha!
