I think it's time we had a talk. You've been acting out a lot in the last few days, and I suspect it may be a cry for attention. If you want attention, you know I'm more than happy to scratch ears and belly when you jump into my lap without clawing me.
Last night, for example, you though it necessary to hunt my rug at 4am. Getting sleep at this time is very important to me, and you should know that I can't sleep through that much noise. It rubs salt in the wound when you mew until I get out of bed and then take my warm spot and fall asleep once I get up, thinking you have to be fed.
What can I do to accommodate your sleeping through the night? You seem to have no problem sleeping 8 consecutive hours at other times of day. We're adults in this household, and being able to sleep through the night is critical.
