Takes them a few minutes to realise that not only am I not coming after them, but they can't get back in! It is amazing how they all settle down after that.
In case anyone thinks that we're slug abeds, our darling furchild would start this nonsense about throwing himself into the blinds around 5am in the morning. I'm an early riser---DH is not. My aim became quite good,btw, and Bilby, just like you I would lead the Pied Piper procession out of the bedroom to gleefully slam the door behind their butts and you're right it became quiet after that-----because if you let them out at 5am then they'd be waking you up at 4am down the road. By 6-7am I'd be awake and cheerfully let them out by the back door. Hubby would still be asleep, however. Yes, I think a spray or two in his direction would be most helpful, too.

Expatgirl, I am also an early riser usually waking before dawn but if I get up then, the cats will want to go out and they have to wait until it is light enough for them to be seen, probably 15 mins after dawn or so. So I pretend to be asleep for as long as I can. Otherwise they all decide that I will never be letting them out and they really must go to the toilet NOW so they will all take their turns running in and out of the litter trays. That means I'll have more chores to do than normal, so I figure it is better to feign sleep and spare the litter, cos amazingly, they miraculously don't need to go quite so desperately while I am still asleep!
