Well she's 12, a senior cat, and they do get set in their ways. As long as she is happy, I would just let her do her thing, as you can't force to remain upstairs anyway. Hazel's friendly to all the members of the house and the St. Bernard, so that is a ++. She's "eating fine, using her litter box" and that one of the most important things. If she were unhappy or very upset she likely would not be eating as much and may be having litter incidents. She sounds fine to me, and maybe eventually she will want to be upstairs. Maybe a scratching post upstairs rubbed with lots of catnip, and a few catnipped stuffed toys can entice her to stay upstairs. Worth a try, but it will be on her terms whether she wants to stay upstairs or downstairs where she feels more comfortable.
