|Licking - Jarrek is either telling you "I like you" or "Get up and play with me". Either way, if you just ignore the licking when it's inappropriate, and lavish with praise when it is, Jarrek will get the idea and lick you more when you're more likely to respond positively.
Necklaces and other jewelry - they dangle. What's not to like? I love it when mommy wears a necklace, I play with them all the time! Mommy doesn't wear necklaces in her sleep though, which was a rule she had before she got me. Her neck is very sensitive, so she has woken up sore from them before. This does cut down on my tomfoolery with them a little. As for playing with bracelets, do not pull them away from their mouths, it becomes a game with no end. I played with mommy's silver watch all the time at first, but I grew bored of it once mommy stopped tugging it away from me and let me paw and lick at it (she did say it was disgusting, but at least I wouldn't claw at it if I had full access).
Sitting on your chest while in bed - daddy wasn't pleased with my tries to do so, so to discorage me he would roll to the side and I would fall off, then I would get scared that daddy would keep rolling and crush me! It made me a lot more respectful of daddy's personal space. Mommy isn't as bad, but I know she doesn't want to be messed with if she turns her back to me while in bed. I figured that out over time. And if I'm persistent, my mommy and daddy have a can full of coins with the opening on top taped up for safety. They shake it near enough to make a jingly sound that scares me a bit, which gets me to back off. As I've learned what things made them shake it, I've come to do those things less.
