Hi everyone, thank you in advanced for your responses. We have two cats, two brothers in fact, of about 2 years of age. Just recently (2/3 months or so), one of our cats changed it's daily habit of going outside during the night to going out during the day. We think he may have gotten into a fight or been spooked by something, as he is often keeping a close eye on the cat flap. Since this has happened, he has been spending nights inside the house. The problem: every night, around 4am, he comes into the bedroom and actively tries to wake myself or my partner up by tapping us on the face - and he's persistent! My partner is very good at turning over and ignoring him, but once he's woken me, I get wound up and can't go back to sleep. I made a mistake of feeding him the first couple times, so in a way reinforced the bad behaviour - something I would like to try and undo now! Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Our house has no internal doors except the one to our bedroom - it's a catch 22 as we would have liked to put a door to section off the kitchen where they are fed, however, the house is currently on the market so this is a no go... On the same note, we can no longer keep the bedroom door closed; as if he can't come inside, he howls and begins clawing up the carpet by the door (not good for selling the house!). I have thought about putting him outside overnight after feeding and letting back in when it's morning now that the weather has began perking up - but I feel bad for our other cat who is very well behaved. Thank you.
