The Meow Machine

Mother of God. Silvio WILL NOT SHUT UP his incessant meowing. It is making me CRAZY. He wants to go out, but it is pitch black and there is a fox out there. Not gonna happen. But how to tell him? He doesn't understand and he won't shut up! Is there such a thing as kitty prozac? Silvio needs some. Or maybe I do...

Sometimes with adolescents you just have to put your foot down and tell them it's for their own good.

It is bad enough that he is waking up super early and starting a ruckus. Now he's doing it at night?!? Argh.

Ah the joys of catdom... heh heh heh... ;)

Yup, exactly why I don't adopt cats under the age of 2...not that I'm lording it over you or anything...just commenting. I think you should have included a picture of Silvio - just to remind us what he looks like (and possibly to annoy LL). ;-)

fermi,
I responded to this issue on my blog, but not sure if you read it. This article is similar to the one I read when I was going through the same thing with Wrigley. It's odd they are both acting up now, it could be the time of year. Sometimes even neutered males go through a little bit of "antsiness" when they should be in heat. And Kathleen, our cat is FIVE and he still meows all night! (fermi - don't read anything into that. Maybe Silvio will grow out of it...)

LL - err, something like that. Someone is having fun, just not the owners.

Kat - he wasn't this bad as a little tyke. This is a recent development.

Natalie - we've tried playing with him. Doesn't seem to help much. He wants to go outside and doesn't realize it isn't safe for him to do so at night.

Oh crap...Boris was doing that Saturday night. He kept climbing all over me and meowing in my face. I finally figured out that I had forgotten to feed them before I went to bed. I got up, fed them and they left me alone the rest of the night (morning).

Any chance feeding them before you go to bed will help?

Maybe he sensed something going on weather. Wise, c there was that earthquake in aaska, maybe they felt the teticnoic plates shifting here first.

Kat - we free feed, so it isn't the food. I wish it were that easily solved.

Red - who knows? It is something different every night.
