1. Strange Cat Behaviours: Crying In the Middle of the Night?
What is strange cat behaviour? Crying in the middle of the night or the early morning can usually be traced to two things: the season, and well, you. Cats’ circadian rhythms adjust just as ours do. When summer approaches and the birds are up earlier, so is your cat, wanting to do exactly what predatory creatures innately want to do: hunt.
But not all pet owners will be okay with releasing their cat into the great outdoors, so if your indoor cat is inappropriately waking you up for food, you need to take action. Feeding your cat when he cries reinforces the bad behaviour, while not responding to the crying with food teaches your cat there will be no reward for early-morning wake-ups. Figure out when breakfast will be and stick to the schedule.
