Re: Please Help me save my puddy!
I think there's two possibilities here:
1. Your cat is very old and may be experiencing a form of dementia or alzheimers, it often manifests itself with wailing during the night.
2. The cat did it once and your mom got up and fed and petted her, she tried it again and what do you know same thing happened. So now she has you mom well trained. The only way to break this cycle is to ignore her. Completely ignore her, don't talk, don't pet, don't get up etc. How long it takes is usually related to how long this has been going on. But typically not more than a couple weeks. Your mom will have to be tough to resist responding but that's the only thing that will break the cycle.
I do suspect your cat is feeling lonely given the change in number of people around. I hope your mother is giving her extra love and attention during waking hours.
