Good Morning! Early Morning Meowing.
IS YOUR CAT YOUR ALARM CLOCK?
A frequent question I’m asked is how to deal with meowing/yowling at 4 am or thereabouts. The reasoning behind this can stem from a medical issue, so visiting your veterinarian is the first step.
Other considerations are hunger and boredom which can be alleviated by having a play session at night followed by a snack and/or providing kibble in a food puzzle before bedtime.
Another idea is to set up a timed feeder before the meowing typically starts.
Senior kitties might experience confusion at night. Night lights around key resources like the litter box and food are helpful. Provide warm resting spots to ensure comfort.
