She's not very playful, I can get toys out and move them around and she just looks at them like she's saying "and what do you expect me to do with that? It's a toy. It's not real, Mum"
Tigger, on the other hand, her reaction is "Yay! A toy! I got to kill it!" and she'll play with a toy for as long as I move it around for her and she often snatches the toy and races round the house with it.
As I said in the OP, I'm not sure whether it's nightmares that wake Ebony up or whether she hears something that scares her or what. I will get some Feliway though and see if that helps (I did have feliway for a cat a few years ago but he decided the diffuser was something to pee on)
