post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm beyond frustrated right now. it's 2:15am, and I have to work in the morning. Winston, my 5 month old Russian Blue/Siamese mix, kitten won't keep his mouth shut. He's due for a neutering on September 15.

As of now, until the beginning of September, Winston is bound to my bedroom for the evenings. It wasn't suppose to be like this, although my first apartment fell through, and I've been stuck here since May.

In the mornings (around 5-6am) he sits at my bedroom door and cries to go out... It's so agrivating, that I let him out. He will not stop until I do. He gets to run around for a bit before he's back in my room while I'm at work. When I get home, he gets to run around a bit more. My sis doesn't want him to ruin anything though, so that is why he's not allowed alone in the house while no one is home.

Just recently, he's picked up this habit of wanting to go out during the nights. He sits at the door crying for me to let him out, I don't of course. but how can I get him to stop this god awful behaviour?

I;ve resorted to sleeping in the hallway myself to escape this insanity!

It will be better when he is neutered. I know this who am lucky owner of two RB males - they being also Sirs.

Try with ear-props (put something suitable in ears).

Are you letting him be outside? A probably fertile male??
OK, I understand you dont have much choice.

Perhaps consider a quicker neutering.

And russians are usually careful, they are lively but usually dont destroy much.

I think she just means 'out' of her room, not outside, and that's good, because however awful things might be for the next few wks, they wouldn't be as awful as they would if she let him go outside now, when he's going crazy to mate, and never saw him again, or saw him only after he been hit by a car or something. Lisa's doing a great job with what she has (you are!) and I hope she can just hang in a bit longer. My RB male (now 12) has given me more sweet affection than all my others put together over the years, and that's saying a lot! They are high strung, but there are advantages to that too. Good luck.. but do remember that it'll take a few wks more for him to really settle down, though each day will be easier.

I feel you pain! Scratch and Bit both used to do this at that age. Try a big play session right before you go to bed. Make sure that you tire him out in a big way. As for the crying, that should mostly go away after the neuter, but you may want to ring your vet to see if it can get done sooner.

Also is there a way you can make your room seem like kitty paradise? Bring in a ton of toys, scratching posts, and a cat tree. Give him things that will keep him occupied and make the room seem like more fun than the rest of the house.

Call the local Spay and Neuter Clinic, or another Vet in your area and get him neutered sooner. That's why he's crying.

Poor thing.

This is the third post of the evening in which I tell people it's okay and even good to have them spayed young.

Early-age spay/neuter
Some people delay spay/neuter for their pet because they've heard the animal must be six months or older. Although many older veterinarians were taught that, a number of studies show that cats and dogs as young as eight weeks have no problems later in life due to early- age spay/neuter. Plus, young kittens bounce back faster from the procedures than older kittens or cats. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) endorses early-age spay and neuter.
Due to traditions in some vet schools, some veterinarians are not familiar with the procedure or have no experience performing the surgery on younger kittens. Also, the procedure requires the safer and more expensive inhalant anesthetics such as isoflorane.

I apologize but just cannot locate the link where I found the above information.

Aww, I feel for you omg.lisa. Before Oscar was neutered, he keeps everyone in the house awake til at least 2am, and me, til heaven-knows when, that I resort to sleeping during the day just to babysit him and tend to him at night.

The first thing to do is have him neutered, it's good he's scheduled, that solves 90% of those cattitude problems.

I agree with lookingglass, keep him busy before bed time, play with him, I do that to Oscar before, I play run and hide with him so that he'd be exhausted enough to just go out during the night.

Out of your room is ok I guess, just try to be sure he doesn't go out of the house, unneutered cats would walk miles just to seek a mate. I hope he gets neutered soon

I also highly suggest neutering him much sooner. I don't knwo why people wait so long. If you wait until then he could very well start spraying by then and then it will be even harder to get him to stop. I would find a low cost clinic, a mobile clinic, neuter scooter or simply another vet that can get him done sooner. I would n't ever wait until 6 months with a male because then all the not so nice male habits kick in.
