How many of you cat people have cats that just can't settle down in your house? Do you have a cat that no matter how calming or quiet you are, it randomly jumps around like it's seen a ghost and runs across your face while you're asleep, scratching you in the process? Yeah, I have one of those. She's almost five and she still does this. Aside from locking her in the laundry room at night, I don't have a fix, which is sad because she's a sweet sleeping companion when she's not randomly scratching me to pieces. She's been looked at by the vet (she was a humane society cat) and found to be healthy, so I'm not sure what to do. Maybe some toys to wear her out?
I also have an almost year-old who is constantly yowling, clawing, scratching and upset, but I'm pretty sure it's because she's in heat and she's my last to get fixed. Hopefully that will take care of a lot of this nonsense but for now, putting her in an open cardboard "calming box" seems to help, at least temporarily!
