Thank you all for your answers. CatloverAmi, my cat does have hearing loss, so that could explain a lot. i'm not sure exactly when she lost her hearing but it could be about the time she started being a lot more 'vocal'. CSdude55, she doesn't have dementia, or doesn't seem to have it. She uses the litter box with no problem, a little too much, really. But with her hearing loss taken into consideration she does act different. I read on another website that a cat with hearing loss will sit and stare, or look confused, and she does exhibit this behavior sometimes, but most of the time she seems very coherent. Alatum, she doesn't act different depending on what room she's in. Yes she sleeps on my bed sometimes. She will jump up on the bed when I go to bed at night, wanting to be petted. So I will pet her and she will lay down for a short time, then she jumps down and goes to another room. She will sometimes nap on my bed during the day too. But when she is constantly meowing at night, the nights she gets me up, she will not jump up in the bed, she will sit on the floor next to the bed and meow until I get up. It's almost as if she expects it. Yes, I know I've probably given in to her too much, and she probably knows I'll get up if she meows long enough. But this is why I was wondering if she does this just for the attention. Kind of like...if she gets her way she shuts up. I don't know if anxiety is the reason for any of this. Unless me sleeping in bed makes her anxious, or moving around the house. I just know the ONLY time she is completely calm is when I'm in the living room sitting in the recliner. Sometimes I think I should just sleep all night in the recliner because that's the only time I have uninterrupted sleep.
