My fiancee and I have two cats about a year old, we got them from a no-kill shelter. They're both calicos and female, supposedly sisters. Cinnamon is the taller and longer one of the bunch. Cocoa is fluffier and smaller. They were both the same size when we got them. We've had them for a little over a month now. Cocoa is fixed, but Cinnamon isn't. Cinnamon has seemed to grown at least 1/3 in size in that little time we got her. She's very needy for attention. She walks around the apartment meowing for long periods of time at all hours. She jumps on everything and gets into everything, while Cocoa just chills. We are taking Cinnamon to get fixed on friday. I was wondering if this sort of behavior is going to taper down after or is she always going to be like this. Does anyone have any experience about this? Ever since we got them, Cinnamon has never given us a good night's rest. We've tried keeping them both up from the moment we're home until we go to bed (about 4 hours) and keeping them up all day on the weekends, but nothing seems to work. We've even tried with a water bottle, but it only works temporarily. Locking them in the bathroom is not an option, because that's just plain mean. If anyone has any advice, please please help us! Also she likes to knead her claws on us and headbutt our faces when we're sleeping. We've also tried playing with her for hours, but that didn't work either.
