my cat wont stop crying!
(los altos, ca)
my cat cries to come in, when i let him in he just cries. I pet him and he seems good then a few minutes later he is crying again... then will go to the door to go out again. this pattern can go on and on. Or he will come in and just cry at my daughters doors. then go down the hallway and cry in my room but won't come up on the bed and then cries more to go out? He will also cry at all hours of the night to come in. .. then again cry to go out. He is the most confused cat i have ever witnessed!
Does any one have any suggestions???? i am 9 months pregnant and I can't see this continuing with the baby coming. It is too disruptive and frustrating. I feel for him and don't know what it means or what to do! HLEP!

Hi, this is a learned behavior and he will do it more and more if he gets attention every thime he does this. unfortunately the only real solution is to ignore his cries, this can be very very difficult but is the only way to teach him that crying does not get rewarded. It is a sort of attention seeking thing and in a human cat realtionship he is taking the role of the baby. Please see my page about exessive meowing for more back ground info. http://www.our-happy-cat.com/cat-meowing.html
