My female cat is almost 10 and has always had a problem with pawing at bedroom furniture in the wee hours of the morning for attention. Lately it's been a LOT worse. She likes to sleep with me and my wife, which is fine by us, but she won't lay down on the bed until she is announced. She'll just keep pawing at the dresser until one of us wakes up, then she jumps on the bed and lays down. If she gets up for anything (water, stroll, bug hunt, etc), she'll need to re-announce her presence and wake us up again. Lately she'll do this about 10 times a night. We've tried spray water bottles and even the cat repellant sprays that are furniture safe. None has convinced her to stop doing this. I'm concerned that she's too old to chage her ways and I can't go without a decent night sleep for 10 more years, so I need help!! Does anyone have some good advice or has dealt with this kind of behavior in the past?
