My cat BabyKitty and I have been best friends for both of our lives and she dosent seem to have any reason to hurt me. During the day, she"s all over me, always purring and using me as a pillow. Recently, I"ve been waking up with more and more scratches on either side of my nose and I can"t find anything that could be causing it. If she is scratching me, it"s not waking me up but I can"t tell if it"s affecting my sleep since I have trouble sleeping anyway. Perhaps she"s hungry at night so she"s trying to wake me up? But if she did try to wake me up I"m sure she"d succeed. What could be happening here? Thanks!

My little girl, Nocturne, is the sweetest thing ever, but she still likes to play at night. Sometimes I wake up, sometimes I don"t, but I know she is playing with my clothes or my feet, ect. She isn"t meaning anything wrong, she might be wandering why on earth I"m sleeping so long or just feeling bored. You could try to get more toys or a fun treat in a ball. I know my cat sleeps better at night if she has a time to play right before I turn out the lights. Then she tends to sleep most of the night through.Hope this helps. Best of luck! : )

I wonder if she is walking around on you when you are sleeping. If you are like me and move around a lot in your sleep then you may be getting scratched by accident. This happens to me once in a while. My cats have now started sleeping next to me more than on me. I guess it is easier for them to sense when I am moving and they do not get startled in their sleep. Hopefully BabyKitty will adjust the same way my cats have and this issue will just go away.

make sure you keep her nails trimmed. long cat nails can very easily scratch, even when they arent meaning to cause you harm.something i did to keep my cats from asking for breakfast, is i got a plate that keeps food fresh for 24 hours.so at 8pm i put their dinner and breakfast down, so they last the whole day with just one serving.
