You stop hearing him Seriously there are ways you can guide his behaviour, but what a cat wants to do, in the end they'll do! Perhaps he thinks he's singing you a lullaby.

Is he sleeping with you or separated from you? Maybe he's a sad little boy who'd like to sleep with you!

Mine meow at night when they don't get enough play in the daytime. They get restless.

He's probably just bored then. Get him a cat tree, and some cat toys to bat around at night, it should help a lot.

On a related issue . .

meowing I could probably take (I think). Don't know about 24/7 though!

But how long after being neutered does it take for the caterwauling to cease?
It's only intermittent, so I can put up with it, but my neighbor isn't very happy. I understand that it takes some time for the hormones to "pass through". I am amazed at the volume of noise that can come from a small animal!!!!

I have a box fan, that I turn the oppisit way from me. I turn it on high and sleep with my bedroom door open. I dont hear Mia when she is playing at night and she can come get in bed when shes ready to sleep. Works great!

We got Bertie neutered about 3 weeks ago and he was awful at first for waking us up in the middle of the night. I'm glad to say he's mellowed out a bit now, and only meows in the morning just before we get up.
So judging on our experience, I'd say give it a couple of weeks? It was really bad right after he was fixed, and much better now.
