Hi Penny, Welcome! How old is your new baby? We would love to see pictures, if you have them.

Lots of people have kitties that have special ways of waking them up. Mine likes to "mrr" early in the morning, and tickle me with her whiskers...usually followed by a kiss on the lips :confused:

Actually, I think there is a recent thread on this topic

Is the kitty using nails? If not, be grateful. The little stinker is trying to get your attention! Be aware the kitten is in the early stages of training you.

I forgot to say Welcome. And he is trying to tell you something -- he's saying, "play with me, feed me, bow down to my superiorness, fetch" LOL. He is merely training you to be his personal servant.

Welcome Penny! As the others have said, your kitty is just trying to get your attention so that you will play, feed, love on him. I'm sure you will find his behavior included in this video:
