I'm about to move out of my house and start living out of my car because my cat is driving me crazy at night! I don't believe in taking your pet to a shelter or rescue, but I don't know what else to do. I have a two year old male (fixed) cat, who I've had since he was a kitten. He's a wonderful and great cat, however, for the past 6 months he's been keeping me up all night by meowing loudly and banging on my bedroom door. I'm allergic to cats, however, if he doesn't sleep with me I could stand the allergies. So at night when I go to bed I close the door to my bedroom so he won't come in. However, my daughter's door is wide open and she takes him with her to her room so he could sleep on her bed. For the past 6 months, he has woken up at 2am and come to my door and start meowing loudly and banging on my door. I've done everything to keep him from doing this, I've even given in and let him come into my room to sleep on my bed. When I do that he just comes in to Meow loudly and use my mattress at a scratching pole!! He won't shut up until I just get up (at 2am!!) and go into the living room and start watching T.V. That's the only way he'll settle down and relax. Or else he is up meowing until 6am!!! Until the sun comes out he won't stop meowing loud. I've tried giving him dinner late at night, giving him dinner at 5pm, letting him outside to play, not letting him take naps during the day so he can be tired at night, aromatherapy, played with him prior to bedtime, not played with him prior to bed time, giving him extra extra attention in the evening, not giving him any atttention in the evening. I don't know what else to do. I work 8-5p, I'm usually home after 5:30pm so I don't know what the problem is. On the weekends my daughter and I will not let him take naps so he'll be tired. It doesn't work, by 2am he is up meowing and banging on my door til 6am. If my daughter shuts her door with him inside, he'll bang on her door until she opens it up and he'll come straight to my room. I'm not sure what he has against me because I can't figure out what he wants. He is not sick or in pain, because when I've had it I just get up and go wash dishes or start cleaning in the middle of the night and he is just in love with that. When I do get up, he just goes to his bed and watches me and lays his head down. I'm about to give him to a rescuer, but my daughter will kill me. I don't know what to do, I'm running on 3 hrs sleep everyday!!! HELP!!!!!!
