Things That Go Bump in the Night

By "things" I really mean "thing." Thing = Bailey. Between the hours of 2 and 6AM, I am woken by at least one of the following sounds (brief descriptions included):

  1. Clunk...clunk. Clunk. CLUNKCLUNKCLUNK.
    • Bailey's collar when it hits the floor because she is spazzing out over a piece of dust or similarly stupid thing she found.
    • Kitten may be rolling around or sniffing on floor, a table, or a counter. The latter two of which she is NOT allowed on.
  2. Jingle! Jingle!! JINGLE!!!
    • Bailey's bell that is on her collar. Makes this noise when she scratches herself, when she runs, or when she jumps.
    • Kitten may be jumping onto a table or counter. Grr.
    • Very loud when it is right next to my ear. Which is 70% of the time because she is spazzing out next to my head, trying to wake me up.
    • Bailey's paws on the floor when she decides she REALLY NEEDS TO GET TO THE OTHER END OF THE APARTMENT SUPER FAST OMG.
    • Usually accompanied by noises 1 and 2.
  4. Scratchscratchscratchscratch....SCRAAAAATCH!!!
    • Bailey scratching on her tower.
    • Usually comes after noise 3.
    • Bailey has just fallen off from her tower, the windowsill, the couch, a chair, a table, etc. while spazzing out.
    • Followed by a long-awaited period of silence while kitten pretends like nothing happened and she is still totally cool and definitely fell off on purpose.
By the time I give up on sleep and get out of bed, she's a perfect angel.

Bailey, I'd like a full night's sleep. Thanks.
