Re: Pawing Cat
He is more than likely just looking for attention. He wakes you up, you pet or talk to him, which reinforces the behavior and then he does it again the next night.
Smirkitty's comment about snoring is quite valid, he might be wondering where that awful noise is coming from. One other thing to consider...a friend of mine has sleep apnea and often doesn't wear her mask. She has nights where her cat will lay right next to her face and wake her up several times during the night. She firmly believes that the cat wakes her when she has stopped breathing.
