Keeping the noise out.

Sometimes I need to get to sleep well before the 1 AM noise cutoff for the shared house I live in. SleepPhones seem to come up in a lot of Ask threads about this sort of thing. Has anyone tried them, and are there cheaper alternatives for comfortable, sleepable headphones? [more inside]

How to prevent our cat from yowling in the middle of the night.

Kitty downers? One of our cats is an older ragdoll. He's generally very sweet and lives to snuggle. About a year ago, however, he started up with night crying - around 3 in the morning he wakes up and will. not. shut. the. &*@#. up. He has access to food, water, clean litter; the vet says there's nothing physically wrong with him. The cat's been sleeping in the basement so that we can sleep. He's not happy with this and yowls disconsolately most of the night, so loudly that we can hear it two floors away. I'd really like to get him back to normal. Any ideas? Experience with kitty sleeping pills?
