Woke up to the sound of a cat howling outside my house somewhere. I assume it's probably a roving tom looking for some loving. Momma is on the porch, but Tilly is unaccounted for. She could be the one howling, but why would a spayed female cat who is well-fed be howling in the middle of the night?

Anyway, we've had a few cats hang around. I assume, and hope, they are just Toms. Last thing I need is another female cat. I can't take care of any more than I already have.

Turtle got scared and accidentally scratched me today. It just barely drew blood. I put a bandaid and anti-bacterial cream on it anyway. I was in the bathroom putting on the bandaid and she came in there and meowed at me three times. That's very unusual, as she rarely ever meows. I guess she was making sure I was okay. Maybe she was apologizing, even though it was accidental.

My Little Cat tells me when she needs hair ball remedy by jumping into the cupboard I keep the stuff in and knocking the tube out of the cupboard onto the counter. She doesn't need it very often, she only does this once every couple of weeks or so. She is a Very Clever Cat.

I have to ask a question for more experienced cat people. I've really only ever been around male cats, but since Jan, we've been sharing our home with our new female feline, Beatrix. Shes a good kid, only 10 months old, hasn't broke anything, doesn't scratch the furniture (carpet is another story though) and is overall a really cool cat - a great addition to our home.

One thing that is driving me up the wall though, is every day at 4 AM she starts to get really vocal. She doesn't meow that much during any other time, but from 4 AM to 6 AM, its like she's giving us a lecture. If I get up and shut her out of our room, well she doesn't like that at all. So I get up and feed her, which distracts her for a few, but then she is back and conversing with us again.

Overall, it's not really a big deal, we ge up about 530 anyways, and we love our kitty, but is this a female cat thing? Are they more vocal? Any way I can curb this behavior? Or is this just our new alarm clock?

I have one girl and 2 boys, and the older boy is the one who gets lonely/hungry early. Don't get up and feed her. You're just reinforcing it. Other than that, I'm afraid I don't have any answers.

Not a female thing, just a cat thing. Some do these kinds of things, it's just a personality quirk. The only thing to do is ignore her. Don't get up and feed her, don't get up and put her out of the room. That is reinforcing her habit.

Ignore it and her, while she's doing it. Eventually she may adjust to your schedule a little better, and/or you will become so accustomed to it you will sleep through it.

(she is already spayed?)

Just thinking, I believe the boy who wakes us up is part Siamese. He has the flame point coloring, and blue eyes, and is a talker, which is a Siamese trait. Your new kittie might have a more vocal breed in her. How about a picture?
