Hi all, Really hoping someone can help me! In mid-April, I adopted a rescue cat. She’s a year and a few months old, and is a real people cat – she loves being around you, and always wants to interact. She used to be quite clingy, but has calmed down over the past couple of months. She’s perfect in every way apart from one: she will not stop meowing and scratching the door at night. She sleeps in the sitting room at night, with her food, water, bed, toys and litter tray. But she really wants to sleep with us. The sitting room is at the other end of the flat, but we still hear her. She starts any time between 2am and 4.30am and keeps at it intermittently – every half hour or so – until we get up. We have NEVER rewarded her behaviour by opening the door / going in to see her / even talking to her through the door, but she still persists. I’ve tried everything I can think of, including: · Routine - putting her ‘to bed’ every night at the same time, feeding her dinner at the same time, letting her out in the garden and back in at the same time, but that doesn’t seem to help with the night meowing · Feeding her a big meal just before sleep · Crazy play sessions half an hour before sleep, with chill out afterwards · Hours running around in the garden climbing trees in the evening · Feliway diffuser · Sticky paws tape on the door and SSScat (in this case she just meows instead of scratching, which is just as bad) · Letting her sleep in the bed with me (tried this for one night soon after we got her, before we got her into her routine – she was good but still woke me up by climbing on me etc.) · Putting ‘cat tv’ on for her She doesn’t want food / play / to be let outside: she just wants to be with us. I don’t understand why, when we’ve never rewarded her behaviour, she’s still going! Is she just very stubborn, so will take longer to give up? Or is there something else we can try? Honestly, I’m at my wits’ end – she’s lovely but I need my sleep!
