I recently adopted a new kitty who at first seemed too good to be true. He's extremely people oriented--in fact, so far he's totally uncomfortable seeming unless you're giving him attention. I hadn't heard him make a peep (aside from purring) until the first night. He slept on the bed with us for about an hour, and then it began: this cat spent the entire evening walking around the apartment meowing. Wouldn't stop unless given attention, and yet he wasn't meowing specifically AT us, but rather all around the apt. It isn't a yowl, but rather an ordinary meow. Yes, he had food, water, a clean litter box, and yes, he is an indoor cat (and neutered) and according to the prior owner always has been. Needless to say, we only got about an hour of sleep.
My plan for this evening is to provide him with a window perch, and lots of toys. Before bed I will try to entice him to play for as long as he will tolerate to wear him out (although so far he seems uninterested in playing). I also plan to give him a cat calm supplement with his evening food, and have already been spraying the house with cat pheromones.
I am wondering if anyone has other suggestions as to what to do, or what might be causing his behavior. I'm hoping he is just anxious in his new environment, and believe this is probably the case. On the other hand, if we can't resolve the problem then we will have to re-home him as we live in an apartment with paper-thin walls and I'm sure he's waking the neighbors.
Any suggestions would be fantastic. He's a perfect cat in every other way, and I'd hate to see him go.
