I was wondering................( sorry a bit long..)

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi friends, just have a big incognita .......

Many of you knows that Milky is a Male of 3 years old, of course neutered ...he´s a Indoor cat, but our home has the characteristic that our back yard and our front yard too is soo big and we "give" permision to him that he "explore" both sides of the home... ....AND of course under surveillance of "Mommie"... ( my wife!...), he never go out and not comeback, he always is on our sight! and in general is a good boy.......(Let me clarify this point our home has big walls like "Alcatraz" and the Feral Cats don´t come in or out of home... in other word His kindom is like a buble..... ) and he´s not completle "unplugged" of the world, he looks throw the gate the dogs on the street and my fathers in law has a Siamese called Mopy, that when they came to visit to us, Mopy come with they to Visit Milky! ..........he sleep during the afternoon, awake and take his sunset ride on the Yard and when he come back eat a bit and go AGAIN to Sleep ...I know the Cats need to sleep around to 18 hours at least and he do it!......

This is my question ( sorry but the "scenary" of his live should I have to explain to you ...)A few months ago, we noted that his behaviour has changed in specially during the nights...... ....what he do?, we sleep usually around to 11 or 12 am daily... when we turn off the light, we can hear his "tod, tod" he jumped down the bed and go to "check" all home..............AND HERE´s where daily around to 3 or 4 am begins to say "MEOW", MEOW, MEOW sooo loudly,...like if he has a pain but nothing!!! , the firts time, he awake us and after a concious revision he don´t have nothing.... in fact he was purring! ...................we always left dry and wet food and of course water at his reach, and he eat during the night, but his constantlys and loudlys MEOWS, MEOWS all nights at the same time,( it seems like he has a watch in his arm......) make think....¿what happen with this boy????


A bit confussed Rigel!

Hmm.. that is a good question. Unfortunatley I dont have an answer for you. Sara recently started doing the meowing thing in the morning too. And she always starts purring when i get up to check on her, I guess she just wants me to talk to her and pet her. I have tried ignoring her, but she will go to the hallway where it echos and does it.
I am interested to see what everyone else says also.

Well, cats are most active at night. Mine are awake at night. They run and play but are quiet. They only meow if they need something from me. Perhaps Milky is beginning to get bored. Or hears things only he can and is telling you about it. Try exhausting him during the day. Don't let him nap too much. And of course, if this is a sudden change of behavior, a check up at the vet may be a good idea to rule out possible health problems.

I wouldn't let Milky nap as much either Rigel, because i know Sophie would be crying at the bedroom door to be out if she was wide awake or she'd be running around the room wanting Rosie to play.

They normally have a run around with each other anyway before bedtime, but i give them some wet food about 20 minutes before the lights go out so they have a full tummy, and you know yourself what you want to do when your full like that?..........sleep!!

Sometimes they purr when their in pain as well though remember, so does he have a yearly checkup at the vets?.

Actually, it's a coincidence that you should post this. Guinness has been doing exactly the same thing at around the same time in the morning (atm he has free range of the flat and can go out at night if he wishes because it is so hot).

He will come into the bedroom, sit on the edge of the bed and meeeow really loudly. As soon as I get up, he rolls over for me to pet him or he will bring his toys in and meeow at me. I think maybe in his case he is bored or just wants a cuddle. This could be the case with Milky too? Except with Guin I wonder why he dosn't just go outside? Maybe his friends are inside asleep and he wants someone to play with?

Anyway, I don't mind so much as I am choosing to keep my bedroom door open because it's hot etc....

If you are that worried though, as Susan says, maybe get him a check up at the vets?

My neutered male also starts meowing around 3 or 4 in the morning. Every night! He just wants attention. After a few hushes and "Johnny, stop that" he is silent again for the rest of the night. My other two cats (females) are quiet all night until they think it is time for me to get up (usually one hour to early!)

Yup Susan, I was thinking as well you say, (I mean don´t let take long Naps... .....).....we leave both food...(Dry and Wet) and he eat it!
about the Vet Check, Milky has his card with our vet, he has a file of all kittys that he check and of course Milky has his annually General Check up
But I take Yayi´s and Susan´s Advice and just to prevent I pick up with the vet this weekend...
thank you for replied Chick!

This is a bit Updated about this....

Last weekend, Milky goes with the Vet. he told us that he has good health! and a bit fat! but in general everything is OK!

About his behaviour he told us that he try to cap our attention! and we have to be sure that other cat don´t cross his lands, maybe he saw someone and he try to call him! ...

We are go this week very late at bed, and he take a bit of naps during that lapse... he change again his behavior, cause he awake around 1:00am and succendly go to eat a "midnight snack" and come back to sleep... this last week he don´t awake us with his meows.........

Garfield does the same thing!!! Only when I open the bedroom door... he flops onto his back and purrs like crazy. The first time he did it I thought "This boy woke me up at 5:00 a.m. for a belly rub"!! Now he has made habbit of it and Im used to it. he doesnt do it every morning but pretty often. I try to give him a good play workout right before bed so he doesnt wake me up so early.

I just saw this thread Rigel. I'm glad to hear the vet said Milky was healthy.

Molly went through a stage where she would start howling around 4:00 AM every day. She did eventually stop after a while.

Abby started this not long after we got her. It was around 4:00 also. She jsut wanted attention and food. She had dry food, she always does, but she wanted wet food. After we figured out what it was, we ignored her, and within a few weeks she stopped. We do try to have a play session with her before we go to bed every night.

But Tell Sarah, the other kittys don´t made the same behavior????? Why ask this because I figured the cat´s imitates the behavior from the other or try to get more attention for himselfs...

My enterely life always has been involved by cats, but always ONE´s has the king or Queen in the moment... ...We never has multiple cats in home!
