Well, my cat is 2 years and some months old. Things seem a little better already, though he is still being a crazy talker. His routine is pretty much this: When I get up in the morning, he can hear me getting in the shower, and it starts. Meowing, meowing, like a "come give me attention meow." My options are to ignore him and shower so I won't be late for work, or to go play with him a little. If I ignore him, he keeps crying and annoys my partner. If I go play with him, it seems he is pleased, but then I go to shower and he cries again.
I try to sit with him in the evenings and play, and sometimes he's into it, and sometimes he's busy running around doing something else. Last night he actually went to sleep when we went to sleep, so that was good, although we had stayed up much later than usual. He just seems to want SO MUCH attention. I love the little guy, but he has lots of toys, and two little dogs to play with! I just wish there was a way to make him be quiet sometimes, and I feel like giving him attention whenever he cries like that is just reinforcing that that's what he should do if he wants attention.
