our kitten (about 6 months old) wakes us up every night yowling and crying. He has food and everything so we can't figure out what the deal is. how do we make him shut up?

Otherwise I think he's just playful and probably is doing that to wake you up so you will play with him. You can get up and play with him, but that will also teach him that if he howls he'll get his way.
If you ignore him, he'll eventually learn that you won't get up and will stop.
Play with him for a good 30 minutes before you go to bed. Maybe feed him a little catnip before bed every so often. Might help get you and him through the night.
Also, check out the behaviours forum here on TCS, I'm sure there are tons of other posts similar to this!!
