I have had a cat now for just over a year. She's 3 years old, came from the pound. She used to always sleep through the nights and be a great cat. She has been waking up earlier and earlier each week, starting at 6am and now we are up to 3am. She will cry until you let her out (she refuses to use her litter box anymore, just goes outside). 15-30 minutes later she is back at the door crying and slapping the glass until you let her in. Then she will run around my room crying until you feed her. She always has some dry food out but she cries until she gets wet. Whenever she's done, she's back in my room, running around crying until she gets to go back out. I used to spray her with water and this would stop it but now she just runs around like crazy and won't stop. It's horrible because I can't get back to sleep after constantly getting up for an hour. What's going on with her and how do I make her stop? I am thinking about putting her in the garage at night, which she will hate. Anything comments will help. I can't function at work everyday sleeping this little.
Drew Weigner, DVM, ABVP responded:
Although this could be a behavioral problem, you need to be sure there's nothing physically wrong with her. One possibility is that she has a urinary tract disease which is causing her urgency to urinate, but there are many other possibilities. Your veterinarian will know how to find out. If it turns out there's nothing wrong, ask your veterinarian to refer you to a board certified animal behaviorist. You need your sleep!
