Ok, this adorable little cat showed up on the doorstep about three months ago. My wife and I took him in, bathed him, got him fixed and all that. He’s a great cat. Energetic, smart, lots of fun. One problem: He wakes us up between 5:30am and 6:00am every morning! He stands outside our bedroom door and mewls and meows. Now, I know enough not to get up, open the door and reinforce his behavior, but sometime I happen to be getting up anyway, so I am afraid he has associated whining like a little baby with getting what he wants. Any advice from you cat lovers out there? I’ve thought about getting the water bottle and spraying him like you would for any other unacceptable behavior, but maybe there’s a better way.
