Kitten meowing all morning? Fertile Mertile + D & C 2 kids; Sumter, SC, United States 37083 posts

How do you get your kitten not to meow as much? we already have one cat, but he's an indoor/outdoor cat. He sleeps in our bed some nights, but doesn't bother us in the morning really at all. Is there anything I can do? right now she keeps trying to climb on my laptop as i'm typing on it, and keeps following my cursor with her eyes. lol she's crazy.

How old is she? Little kittens are loud and energetic.

Some cats are just mouthy.



We had one who just meowed all the damn time from when we got her as a kitten until she was 15 years old. MRAW MRAW MRAW...

Around 12 weeks. They estimated her DOB to be November 17, 2012. Will it just take time? And right now she is in one room with all her stuff, litter box, water and food, and blanket. When should we just let her stay out at night? I just worry she will get into all of our stuff while we are sleeping.

I have two cats. One is chill and quiet. The other is a loud little lady. They are older cats though. Not kittens. I miss when they were tiny like kittens.

My Nina was about 12 weeks when I got her. She yelled in the bathroom all night too. It immediately stopped when I let her out.

Yeah, we just got her a few days ago, on Sunday. They just recommended that at first until she got used to her surroundings. Did your cat get into everything at night? Just a minute ago she was climbing on the dvd's and knocked them off.

We had a big house, and she was an indoor/outdoor cat.



We'd close the bedroom doors, and put her outside if she got crazy.



We also had to put her outside whenever we made food, or she'd steal it (she seriously was a bottomless pit). We found out that she had a thyroid issue and would just eat and eat and stay a skinny little shit. Do you have a room that you could put her in with food/litter box so she's unable to wake you up if you don't feel comfortable having her outside yet?

right now she has been in the bathroom with food, water, and her litter box just at night. But she is meowing really loudly in there, and it carries upstairs. I'm not sure when we are going to let her outside just yet, she's little.

No, she's actually pretty chill. I was afraid she'd claw our leather furniture, but she hasn't (she's 16 weeks old now). You can hear her running around all night playing with her toys and stuff, but that's it. I haven't even seen her on the counters.

Some cats are just mouthy. My outdoor cat(hes 5) is VERY loud and very annoying lol. My indoor cat doesnt meow at all. She chirps and has never meowed(shes 3 this year)
Kittens are very energetic so its possible it may stop with age but it may not.
Is she fixed? That may help too.

The only time Nina meows (since I let her out of the bathroom) is when I take her to the vet and when I call her name. She'll meow back and come running.

Sounds like she has separation anxiety while being in the bathroom. I would just kitten proof the best you can and just shut the doors to the bathroom and bedrooms. Locking her away from everything might just make her worse.

Well there are times when she will sleep on her blanket for a while, and doesn't meow, but then once she gets going, she won't quit. I'm afraid to leave her alone while i'm gone running around the house. She thinks everything is a toy, my laptop, my phone, any cord she finds, my purse, my son's glasses case, everything. Our older cat we found as a stray when he was around 3 already, so he's fairly calm compared to her.
