Question night time howling

Hi All,

I have three cats, two female one male: Violet, Cole and Beni. All were rescues. Violet is Cole's mother. Beni is a new rescue, and why I'm here today.

Beni is a bengal cat that was purchased by one of my nasty neighbors. She kicked him to the curb when she brought a new dog into the house and the two didn't get along. I believe that Beni has all of his shots, but that hasn't been confirmed yet. What has been confirmed is that Beni had all of his claws removed.

My problem is with Beni's nighttime howling. He likes to get up at 3:00 to 4:00 am to walk around the house a 'talk'. It's very loud. He's not looking for food, and if I show him the door, he isn't interested in going out (I wouldn't let him out anyway, it is far too cold and dangerous given that he has no claws).

Any suggestions on how I can stop his night time antics? I need my sleep!

Thank you,
Catty Lady

Maybe a radio left on, part music, part talk may make him feel less lonely? An automatic feeder that spits out a few treats from time to time? If you respond to his howling by talking/yelling, etc. won't work as that is giving him the attention he wants.
Suggest you check out Bengal breeder Mochas Mommy's remarks on Bengals under the Breeding section of Forums. She may have some tips? All the best!

The natural question would be is Beni neutered? It sure sounds to me like the song of the horny cat.
