I would say she’s getting bored being confined to one space. I know you are trying to give her what she needs but it sounds like the one thing you can’t give her, space, is what she’s crying for. Sorry you’re having a hard time with this!

Our cat will meow nonstopped if we confine her to our bedroom (that’s where we keep her litterbox and we have a rabbit who likes to pee on our bed, so if we leave the door open he goes in and pees, but if we close it, she can’t get to the box, haha).  She knows she’s being locked in a room and I think that’s her problem.  When we let her out she just sits in a window or plomps on the floor (she’s quite the plomper).  She just likes being with me and Fiance and bunny.

Has your Fiance looked into medication for his allergies?  I also know that they have wipes for “wiping away the allergins,” maybe those would help, then you could let her roam?

ETA: She’s perfectly contended now that we found a solution to the urinating rabbit/litterbox  problem.  I’m always afraid that theyre going to start using each other’s litterboxes, but so far so good.  😛

It sounds like she’s getting depressed. If her behavior has changed from your last apartment to this one, and she’s inconsolable now…I don’t think she’s happy. I would talk to the vet about it, they may have a suggestion you haven’t thought of. She can probably also sense the negative energy coming her way- no matter how nice your Fiance tries to be to her, if he’s allergic, chances are he doesn’t react to her in the most positive light…and it seems like you are maybe not the most happy with her right now either. How would you feel to be cooped in one room with two people who are annoyed with you? I would meow all the time too.

Agreed, she sounds depressed and confined. Jusbebe cause she doesn’t do anything when she’s allowed to be out doesn’t mean she likes being locked up. Usually pets make annoying noises for a reason.

Okay, I know you were probably joking, but…I have had a dog who was on antidepressants (for grief, after our other puppy passed away) and they were a godsend. Of course, I’m from an area where this is relatively the norm…people would laugh at me where I’m living now if they ever heard about it! Talk to your vet, they’re cheaper than people prescriptions and they might make her a lot happier, or at least help her adjust to her new situation. 

But if you’re comitted to keeping her a part of your family…has your Fiance considered allergy shots? Have you looked at soft paws to keep her from messing up your furniture/other stuff? http://www.softpaws.com/ My mom was allergic to cats for years, but after finally relenting to a cat (he came to us as a stray and she didn’t have the heart to turn him away), being around him actually desensitized her a lot. Her allergies and asthma got progressively better, kind of like a natural version of an allergy shot. If he could commit to allergy shots/taking allergy medications consistently and you could commit to keeping her brushed twice a day and wiped down with a wet washcloth/baby wipe occasionally to keep her super clean, as well as keeping her out of your bedroom, his office, etc- but free to the rest of the house- and you were to vacuum and dust twice a week- i would bet that after a little while you’d have zero problems with his allergies and her happiness.

But… it’s my personal opinion that keeping her locked in a room is not a good solution. Maybe you have friends or family that could give her the life she deserves.

I know you love her, but is this the best life you could be giving her?
