Our expert says:
You are quite right that your kitten is manipulating you to feed her and it may well get earlier and earlier. Why not close her out of your bedroom at night? As long as she has a comfortable place to sleep, water and a litter tray she will be fine. Once she is out of the habit in a few weeks time, you can allow her in your room again. You can also deter her from scratching a particular spot by covering the area with bubble wrap or other plastic, foil or sandpaper. If you spray her, don't look at her or say anything - pretend it's the bed that's spraying her - ignore her and don't feed her until at least an hour later.
