I am at the end of my cat "wisdom" ! Pookie continues her meowing now between 5 and 6 am ! What I do now is jumping out of my bed, feed her, jumping into my bed and put earplugs in my ears ! That allows me to sleep a little longer. Sometimes I can hear her even through them !

She has an unbelievable loud meow never thought that she would become such a loudspeaker. Mr. G. isn't bothered, he has built in earplugs.

Until it's feeding time around noon, she is the old peaceful cat and doesn't say a word meow. She must have swallowed an alarm clock, because she is always very punctual and she eats a lot !

Arthur enjoyed the last sun's rays outside on the kitchen sill

Now it became cold and wet and he prefers to iron my laundry on the radiator.

Rosie spends her days on the top of the sofa

when she is not warming up on the heating. She looks so cute but isn't she hides under the table or chair and slaps on poor Pookie when she walks by. I suddenly see a little paw stretching out ! Poor Pookie makes a jump and then hisses back. That's brotherly (or rather sisterly love).

If anybody has a recipe to make Pookie stop meowing, please let me know !

Pookie's a senior, so it's possible she is either a) losing her hearing, b) becoming senile or c) Bast forbid - both! If she is eating a lot and not gaining any weight along with all her vocalization, it could be a medical issue. Only a vet would know for sure. How to make her stop? If it's medical, there might be a remedy. If it's just aging... I don't know if anything can help!

When Hannah is waiting for her chicken follows me round like a shadow but at least she lets me get out of bed a get a cup of tea first! Is Pookie going deaf so she can't hear herself meow?

Mom says she's always amazed at our internal clocks. Too bad they never seem to coincide with HER clocks!

You could be describing my little Gracie. She is deaf, has been since we rescued her from the woods as a kitten. But now as she is getting older (12) she is just like Pookie-right down to the mousies! I'm sure its her age, being spoilt and maybe some health issues. If someone has any ideas I will be watching too. Love,love,love your posts!!!

When you find the magic recipe to stop old cats meowing, please share it. Charlotte's extra loud midnight meowing makes me want to howl at the moon like an old dog.

Maybe you could buy a timed feeder that goes off a little before 5AM? If it's food she wants, it might help to keep her from yowling.
