AddieNicole:  two kittens are so much fun though!!!  Your little guy will annoy you less, and they’ll play and snuggle together, and it’ll be great.

It will probably get much better soon… a few more months. I do personally have a talkative cat though, he is almost five and still will do a lot of meowing when he isn’t getting attention or to do what he wants. I sometimes put him in the bathroom for a bit or a bedroom to calm him down. Do you have a cat tree or window seat? My cat will relax and look out the window or sliding glass door for hours.

AddieNicole:  this is probably a silly question, but have you tried ignoring him?

Shutting the door and only coming in or interacting with him when he is quiet?

My cat has this problem a little, doesnt sound as severe as yours. But i read that even telling him to be quiet or spaying a water bottle is giving them attention. They like it, even though it is negative attention. They crave any sort of reaction from you.

It is hard to tune out sometimes, but i have only had him for 6 weeks and dont want to train him that he can meow like that when he wants something. I will shut the door for a period of time and when he stops i will let him out or go and play with him. I think its getting better.

AddieNicole:  if it makes you feel any better it was a long road with my baby cat and he is not perfect but he is much better behaved.

He was a stray and a lot of his issues were to do with feeling like he was never getting enough attention. It did resolve itself with consistency but yours does sound tiring as (insert cuss word)!

Sometimes a tap on the head works better than anything else. Remember when they were kittens that what their mother would do. Cats bop each other as communication. Mine is so cheeky now when I catch him being naughty he ducks his head straight away and thinks he has got away with being a shit. Mainly stealing the other cats food (he is bottomless\full bottomed!) 

Have you thought about phoning a trainer and seeing what they say? Not read the whole thread so sorry if someone else has mentioned that.

AddieNicole:  did you adopt a tiger?!?  I’ve never met such an active kitten (and I used to foster!). is getting a playmate an option?

I saw Petsmart had weighted vests for cats and dogs…. helps them with anxiety, it’s comforting – similar to weighted blankets for people with autism.  Maybe try this and he’ll find it calming.  If it doesn’t work, you can always return it.  You can also get plug in pheromone things that are supposed to help with anxiety.  That’s about the only I can suggest, aside of getting him another kitten for a playmate
