VCA SFVS neurologist David A. Geiger, DVM, recently answered a San Francisco Chronicle reader’s question about a kitty who’s suddenly become a middle-of-the-night nuisance.
The Ask the Vet question: Recently, our 16-year-old cat has begun waking us up every couple of hours. She stands on me, meowing loudly, and if I don’t get up right away she knocks over objects until I get up. She and her two sisters have lived with us since they were 8 days old, and she lost one sister in May. We’ve taken her to the vet multiple times, and she’s had some teeth pulled, but she’s eating and drinking and doesn’t seem to be in pain. I love her, but this schedule is exhausting. What can we do?
