It's frustrating for us humans when you're wide awake but your best pal is snoozing away - and this kitten-filled video proves that the same applies for animals of the feline persuasion too.

Trying a series of different tactics to rouse his chum from his slumber - ear nibbling, face licking, tail flicking, mouth poking - everything he can to get some attention.
