    Hi there, mind you I'm not an expert in any way but I would say unequivocally yes!. About 2 and a 1/2 years ago, One of our cats started getting sick with diabetes and so after a month of getting the feeding time correct I would get up at 5:00 a.m. for the 1st feeding, And for the last year and 8 months maybe, my cats wake me up at 2 o'clock in the morning, sometimes they wake me up at 3:30 it doesn't matter , They have totally forgotten all about their feeding system.if I'm on the sofa, or in the bedroom they wake me up. And really it comes down to me and tough love, but they're very tough customers and, About 8 months ago I slept walk for the 1st time because they wake me up so much and I had all kinds of tendinitis type issues because I was just standing up without engageing my muscles at all to get to go feed them. So I would say most definitely I'm still working on those animals but it's really been difficult. Actually thank you for posting that because that's one of my issues that I am here for is a how to deal with the lack of sleep, And I already ready know how to deal with it it's to get sleep.

    I also have a great deal of trouble when my foot nueropathy will act up ,so sometimes that alone can keep me awake, Other than reading, I find streaming jazz music from the fifties and sixties to help me sleep better. But it's a horrible feeling to not get a full night's sleep.
