I've a 23 month old female cat which someone found on a industrial car park late one night in December 2017. She's very loveable. However, there's a major problem: I work from home in I.T support. The work is hectic and demanding. The cat thinks I'm there simply to play with her. If I don't respond to her demands NOW she starts whining and it's like water-torture until I give in. I've tried shutting the door but she resorts to clawing the carpet, not to come in but just to know that I'm at her beck-and-call. She's got lots of toys and can go out at will. I dread going out dancing at night because I know that if I get home at 2 or often later in the morning she's going to be wide awake and ready to play whereas I just want to sleep. This never happens as she attacks my toes as soon as I get into bed. My fault at 64 I suppose for enjoying myself until the early hours. Someone has suggested that I get another cat of a similar age to keep her company. However, someone else said that cats are solitary animals. I had a kitten before but he came with his mother who kept him company (and in check), so he wasn't a problem in this way. Suggestions as what to do would be very much appreciated and thank you for taking the time to read all of this.
