Fortunately I have a friend who is not afraid to clip Marshall's claws so it at least cut back on injury but this has not stopped the pawing. He gets in bed with me and starts pawing me around 4am every morning. I don't wanna shut him out but I can't get any sleep because of it. He doesn't just paw nicely, he basically slaps me in the face furiously over and over. Almost as if to purposely wake me up. If I turn over, he gets up and walks to my other side and continues. I can't take much more! Anyone else have similar experiences or advice?
