Thanks for your answers CIA.
Please let me know if she is pushing her tail to one side (Lordosis), especially if you are scratching her at the base of the tail. I ask this
question to rule out any Thyroid problems, if she is doing this with her tail I would suggest that you take her to the vets and have a thyroid panel
performed. Night calling and squawking can also be related to Thyroid issues too.
From what I can gather for the moment your cat is expressing a very deep attachment to you as her mother and feels the need to spend more time with
However, one thing I would definately rule out is that she sleeps with you... a DEFINATE NO NO...
This is a little like giving in and letting your child sleep with you all the time... the child ends up thinking this is normal and will cry and cry
until you give in again and let him/her back into your bed.
I know it is hard to do, but the next time you go to bed, close the bedroom door and ignore her if she starts squawking and scratching at the door.
Even if this is hard on your heart and also maybe a little irritating, you have to continue doing this for a month or two until she finally realises
that her place is not in your bed but in her cat basket (a bit like saying to the teenager "Ok, it's about time that you start to make your own way in
Try during this time to put a couple of ping pong balls or her her favourite toy, or even better , a toy filled with catnip in her basket and have her
food dish always next to it.
Another suggestion : Allocate cuddle time to about 1/2 an hour every day in one go around the same time of day, the rest of the time try to ignore
her. She will get used to this ryhthm eventually.
