What about bells? I have Sophie trained to ring the bells at the door to go outside but I think it being a different noise than she is used to she might be intrigues by it and come to you. The other thing might be a clicker? I know they are used mainly for dogs but once again it is a different sound.
I know one thing foe sure that will get Smokey running to you and that it the sound of a can opening, too abd you couldnt tape record it and replay it when needed.
Have you tried giving her a tablespoon of food before bed? It might extend her hungry tummy giving you a little more extra sleep. It works for some and not for others.
She is precious BTW!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
