Needy cat â€“ cute yet annoying
The reason I picked out my youngest cat at the shelter was because she more or less picked me. While all the other kittens slept she sat at my feet, looked up at me and mewed until I would pick her up.
6 months later she still loves affection and follows me wherever I go. If I am brushing my teeth she is up on the sink with me just staring at me. If Iâ€™m blow-drying my hair she sits on the floor or on the toilet seat waiting until I stop so she can meow and I will hear her.
A couple months ago she started this weird habit of crying at the bedroom door at pretty much the same time every morning (6am). She has become a sort of rooster. The obvious problem is that she is really loud and wakes us up when we want to sleep in. She will also claw under the door in an attempt to get in.
When we do let her in she just jumps up on the bed and looks for any protruding hand to nuzzle and force us to pet her. Although this is adorable, itâ€™s getting to be a big annoyance and Iâ€™m hoping sheâ€™ll grow out of it. Suggestions? My older cat grew out of it, will the little one as well?
Sidenote: The reason my cats donâ€™t sleep with me is because 1.) the little one still gets into things that we donâ€™t want her to and 2.) I hate moving them when they are cuddled up next to me, therefore I donâ€™t sleep well.
