Is he fixed? My cat who turned 2 this April would meow ALL NIGHT, EVERY NIGHT, ALL NIGHT LONG for no reason at all. We got him fixed & finally the crying/meowing stopped! 🙂

Sadly cats are nocturnal, so there night time is play time/active time and daytime is cat nap time 🙂

As Mrs.Estep said, fixing them may help tremendously if they are not.

Also keep in mind he is new to the house, so it takes time to adjust !

@Eva Peron:  I agree with everything you said.  When we first got our youngest, she would rub against any hand that she could find unless we hid it under the blanket.  My old cat still meows at night but when I visit my dad, I just close the door so I don’t hear him.

He’s probably just adjusting to his new home.  Maybe he gets lonely when you are sleeping.  Eventually, he should settle into your routine and may even sleep with you. Hopefully, the meowing will calm down soon.

This might sound weird, but maybe it’s because it’s summer?  I know our cat is usually pretty quiet at night during the winter, but in the summer months he’s loud.  I’m pretty sure it’s because his natural cat instincts have him itching to go outside and hunt at night.  Try opening a window (with a good, secure screen obviously) so he can take in some spring night breeze – I know it helps with our furry friend.

my cat is just loud.  She always has been and always will be lol.  We don’t let her sleep with us because she wakes us up too much.  We close her in the kitchen with her litter box, food, water, and bed every night and she usually gets quiet after a few minutes.  good luck 🙂

Cats are very active at night, so he could be meowing because he’s bored and wants to play. You could try playing with him right before you go to bed to tire him out a little. I know my cats love Da Bird and Da Mouse toys!

When we first got my younger cat, she did this, to the point where we weren’t getting any sleep. She was only 3 months and had really awful separation anxiety (she still does)–she would bring mouthfuls of food into the bedroom doorway and watch us sleep while she ate. She’s much better now, unless she gets her favorite toy, and then she drags it around and cries because she really wants to play. Our bigger kitty isn’t a talker, but he’ll come and sit on you and lick/bite you because he wants to be fed.

Because you JUST got this cat, I think it just needs time to adjust to its new house and people. He’s probably just lonely right now.

He’s probably just adjusting to his new home, but I agree with PP, try to wear him out right before bed.  We used to have this problem with my cat, and we would play with her right before bed and she’d be more tired.

@ERnurse:  I would suggest what hotchildinthecity said.. try to wear your cat out before bedtime. Or you could get one of those mechanical balls that you can turn on that moves around. Also try catnip to make him feel more comfortable.
