Hello, fellow cat lovers!
New here and very happy to be apart of such an active and helpful community
So, I have these three cats...
One of them is about nine months old, and it's a boy. The other two are sisters and are just shy of three months (all strays). I love these guys.
I live on the third floor of my apartment and am usually gone anywhere from 10-14 hours a day for work, not getting home until about 1-2am. While most of the time they're pretty well behaved, sometimes when I get home they go nuts and start chasing each other around the apartment.
Does this bother me? Not in the least. Unfortunately, my neighbors down below don't feel quite the same way and complain about the noise factor. While I definitely sympathize, I'm not really sure what I can do. I've tried separating them, taking their toys away for the night, holding them, ignoring them, changing the temperature, feeding them before bed, but nothing seems to be a guarantee.
I've tried setting up a time to talk to the neighbors to try and explain things, but they refused...
I am getting them fixed later next month (that's when their appointment is), but in the mean time I'm in a bit of a jam. I don't want to yell at them, because they aren't really doing anything wrong. They're just being kittens!
