I have three stray cats that I am giving all neccesary shots, spay/nueter to then I am going to find homes for them. They are all pretty gentle natured, but the female NEVER stops meowing. If I am in the room she will meow, meow, meow until I stop whatever I am doing and pet her. If I am not in the room she will sit on my bed and meow, meow, meow until I come in and interact with her. At night when I put her in a kennel and turn the lights off she will meow, meow, meow for probably an hour before she finally goes to sleep. Then at about 3am she wakes up and starts meowing all over again. And she doesn't have a sweet little purr-like meow either. Its the 10 second long, whiny, "reeeeOWWWWWWWowwwwww" that echos through the house. At first I thought it was cute. Now after having my sleep disturbed 5 nights in a row it isn't so adorable. She WAS a stray, used to running around outdoors so she probably is complaining some because she wants to go out-which I am not letting her. Is there any way I can quiet her down? I can't help it when I wake up at 3am and start thinking how lovely Boiled Cat Stew sounds. Also, when she starts meowing her two brothers who are normally quiet join in, and I have a cat choir that is in DIRE need of a voice instructor. And I have already checked to see if she is in heat-she isn't. She doesn't show any signs, and I let her out to play with her brothers every day and they show no interest. So...I just really want to find something that will keep a bit quieter.
