my cats are the same way! they chew on my charger but I just shove it under my pillow and they forget about it and can't get it. your kitten wants to be with you but if you really need sleep then put your cat outside your room. have another bed or couch so your kitten can sleep on it. if you put a blanket over your head for awhile, your kitten might leave you alone and eventually fall asleep, then take the blanket off and sleep. just a few things I do with my hyper cats haha. don't feel bad, if you desperately need sleep then do it. hope that kinda helped(:

Yeah, you need to man up to your cat at once. If you want proper relation with it, teach it the boundaries early. For the power cords, I can recommend putting some chilli powder on them, the animal will smell and realise they are bad. And spray a little water on it if it goes in your bed?

My cat use to chew on electrical cords to make me get out of bed. He learned that I had to stop him which of course meant I had to get up. I unplugged everything I could and got whatever battery operated electrical items I could. As for your phone, maybe you could charge it somewhere else. You could also buy some kind of plastic tube like PVC pipes and put the wire in the tube limiting the amount if wire your kitten can get to. Stop her habit now so she doesn't do it as an adult cat.

We don't let our cats in the bedroom.
My husband is allergic and we don't want them in our bed. They are fine!!
Your kitten will learn your routine and adapt. My cats know as soon as the coffee maker goes on that it's time for us to get up! I give them treats in the morning while I drink my coffee. I think it is fine leaving your kitty out.

If you intend to keep your kitten out of your room, I'd get a second kitten so the one won't feel lonely. My cats all (3) sleep with me. I also have a kitten who thinks bedtime is playtime. I have to tire her out before I can get to sleep! Kittens don't stay kittens for long, enjoy her while you can! Just remember that it's temporary, also this is preparing you for future parenthood!

It's wise to do what you need to do to keep your pet safe. I don't know why cats are so fond of electrical chords..Very common problem. My concern would be the rest of the house now is an open playground to get into trouble .. electrical chords and all.
