I love my cat. Very much. But sometimes I want to throttle him.
As most of you know I moved to a new place, and he seemed to settle in nicely. Until I found that he doesnt use his litter box to pee much anymore, prefering behind the tv or on my clothes. I chalked it up to stress and am monitering that closely.
I am not mad at him for that.
Last night I didnt get sleep because of him. This has been going on since I have had him(his whole life practically), and I am finally sick of it.
He is a smart cat and has found ways to annoy me when he is out of food. He has found ways to open and shut the cupboard doors so they make a really really loud noise. He does this whether I am asleep or not. If I am asleep, and I dont respond to the cupboard, he comes and scratches the hell out of me. My wounds have increased this past week.
Last night was the worst. I fed him a whole lot of food, and went to bed. The whole night he kept banging the cupboards and clawing me. To the point I threw him off my bed onto the floor and started kicking him out of my room. This was repeated repeatedly throughout the night. I later find out he was out of water. So I filled his water bowl, but it was to late. My nights sleep was ruined.
Is there anyway to calm him down or stop him from doing this? He is a big cat getting bigger, so I dont like feeding him tons of food before I go to bed. I forgot the water last night, my fault. But even if I feed him tons of food, and his bowl goes empty in the middle of the night, he freaks out.
Its really starting to annoy me. I have been thinking of locking him in my bathroom with his food and water bowl, (the bathroom leads into the storage area, so he would have room to mess around) just so I can get a good nights sleep.
