my cat goes crazy at night
Usually between 3am -5 am my cat starts running around from room to room meowing and meowing sometimes she will come right up to our face and wake us up from her meowing or from running on us, what can i do to stop this morning madness

Hi this sounds familiar. My own cat used to do the same thing when she was younger. now she just gets us up at 7am.
It is quite normal for cats to be more active at night time and the early hours as this is their natural time for hunting and playing etc. So your cats behavior is quite normal, unfortunately it doesn't fit in with our own lifestyle.
As to what you can do about it well there is not much but these are the things I have recommended before.
Play a energetic game with your cat about half an hour before bedtime to help tire them out
feed your cat a good meal before bedtime to help settle them down for the night
make sure the cat has plenty of things to keep them occupied during the night if they feel like playing etc
keep them in a separate room with the door closed
if this routine is kept up the cat will soon settle down into the new routine and should get used to getting up when you do.
best wishes Kate
