Cat attacks feet

My Cat attacks feet and legs when they walk by. Nermal is a rescue I got from my brother-in-law a little over a year ago to keep our shepherd mix Zephyr, company (we had recently lost our other cat). She was always strange but now that she is older,she is very vocal.

Now the weirdest thing she does is when she thinks I should feed her and I don't think it's time,is to follow me around the house and bite at my ankles and feet. She also has the habit of just biting me in general if I am reading or busy and she thinks it's dinner time.

She has a cheap stuffed mouse that she FETCHES if you throw it. Of all the high priced toys she has that's the only one she plays with.$.79 cost.

hunting instinct

I have a 3 year old short haired tortoise shell cat named Lucy. She belonged to a bodega in the neighborhood and I've taken care of her since she was a kitten. She is very close to me.

Anyway, I have since taken her into my home, trying to make it as loving and comfortable for her as possible. She likes to cuddle with me, and when I go to bed at night, she jumps on the bed and kneads all over until she will finally curl up next to me.

Now the problem... I have circulation issues in my legs, and can't keep still for too long, so I constantly wiggle my feet and toes during the night. When she hears this, and sees My toes moving under the covers, her hunting instinct kicks in and she will attack my feet.

I have scratches all over my feet. I love when she sleeps with me, but the foot attacks are driving me crazy! I don't know what to do, short of wearing many pairs of socks to bed.

When I wake up in the middle of the night, Our Cat Sasha bites and bats at my feet while I'm walking. It seems as if she is just playing, it's cute and doesn't hurt but I wonder before how-long she will make it hurt.
