Cat Meows at night
My cat Simba (boy) has developed an annoying habit of meowing outside our bedroom doors at night. I would imagine its because hes getting bored, but is there any way to make him not meow?
i have a cat door on my door, and he used to be allowed free access anytime... until he developed a habit of playing with the door at night... VERY noisy! we now shove a towel in it at night.
Im guessing he gets bored and wants us to get up. But the thing is, for one, he generally wants nothing to do with us (except once in a while when its his idea), and is silent, during the day, and for 2, he feels like he succeeded everytime - because when we wake up by his meows, we realize that we have to pee and therefore come out of our rooms.........
How can we get him to not meow? or at least, to meow during the day when it doesnt matter? why exactly could he be meowing? If he does want in my room, how can we get him to not play when the cat door? (or silence it lol)
our other cat Boo (female) is perfectly fine at night. she is quite vocal during the day, but relaxes and rests at night - or at least is quiet about whatever shes doing.
anyone have any advice?
