    I've noticed that, too. I grew-up with a male and female cat, and found the male cat to be much more affectionate. Honestly, he was so gentle. He could have done some damage at his size, but was a bit demure, yet so sweet and loving.

    I've had both and I like boy cats. My current one is female and her buddy before, female as well.
    For some reason the boy cats I've had tend to be more secure and have a little more personality.
    The girls tend to be temperamental and sensitive. hmmmm :)

    I love em all, either way.

    And I agree with catfeeder, cat's are by nature nocturnal creatures. With some time and patience you can turn that around. The little kitty is just doing what's comes natural for her.

    Thanks everyone for your replies. Very helpful. I'll ride it out and make sure to give her adequate play time. Just love our little furry companions.

    I allowed my boy onto my bed when he was a kitten. He's 4 1/2 now and I'm afraid to say I wish I hadn't encouraged him, because as much as I love him I never get undisturbed sleep! He wakes me up at least once a night, usually around 4am. He meows for me to fuss him, taps me on the face and insists on sharing my pillow, even if it means literally lying on my head! If I shut him out of the bedroom he scratches the door and makes a racket. I hope this doesn't happen to you!

    We've got two cats, both female. Not by any kind of design. I don't have much of an opinion. Maybe it'd be nice to have a boy just to have a bigger cat. Then again, I was also half joking about not settling for anything other than a tortie Maine Coon, but ultimately settled on the most basic looking of tabbies. Except for her ears. They're satellite dishes.

    We adopted Comanche when she was a few years old and then we adopted Xavi as a kitten hoping Comanche would be a bit less intimidated and more comfortable establishing her own boundaries. That was as wrong as I've ever been. But I raised Xavi from a wee 5-weeks old. She was a huge spaz for the first year of her life, but you'll look back fondly on when your cat was a cute little ****er. She loved sleeping with us. She still does, minus the "us." She prefers sprawling out in whatever nook my wife provides because she's a human space heater. But even though she was particularly obnoxious in the middle of the night as a kitten, I never had the heart to lock her out.

    She doesn't make much of a peep anymore. It's the older cat I have to worry about now. She likes to find random toys at 3am to grab and yowl for us (me) to come throw so she can play fetch.

    Look how tiny she was:

    OMG! Jman, she's adorable! Well, you both are. I just love it when they curl up and spin around like that. I can see that she's a shoulder lover. I've always trained kittens to ride around on mine.

    I fostered 3 kittens from a stray and they learned to climb to my shoulders while I did dishes. I could walk around with them perched there, do housework with them on, they stayed put during bends like perfect acrobats.

    Here's the thing I never knew they learned. All 3 of the new owners sent me Christmas cards with pics that year. The one thing they all had in common was an ability to turn on the kitchen sink!

    They have these cool little blankets that purr and mimic a heartbeat. My girl is older but we still use it on occasion like when we are going to be gone for a while, as she's the only cat in the house.

    I'm overloaded with the cuteness of this thread.
