Cats are nocturnal. They tend to hunt in the evenings.

One way to quiet them down is to play with them in the evening, then feed them before you go to bed.

It’s caused by a lead deficiency.

"A typical hunting time for cats is between 3 and 5am..."

I get up for work at 4:00 am - they are both ready to rock-n-roll ("what took you so long, dad" they say in their Cat-alonian dialect....)

There’s nothing like being woken up early for breakfast by someone who sleeps 16 hours a day. Luckily she has otherwise excellent people skills.

I baby-sat a sweet little kitty cat for 2 weeks, and I was warned to go to bed with the door closed, and to ignore the cat trying to get in.

That first night the kitty jumped into bed with me to snuggle and get petted, and after about 15 minutes, she was ready to go to sleep, got up, curled up between my knees, and went to sleep (I had played with her quite a bit before bed time).

At about 4:30 am, the formerly sweet little kitty cat (anything that wakes me up at 4:30am is no longer “sweet,” with the possible exception of Kate Upton), by head butting my chin... I get out of bed and check her food bowl, and it’s still full... When I go back to the bedroom, she’s sitting on my bed, waiting for me to get back in... At which point she hops back on my chest for another 15 minutes or so of petting, at which point, she gets up and curls up between my knees and goes back to sleep.

It turns out that she just believed that 4:30am was pet the kitty time. And being a loyal member of her staff, who was I to disagree. Seriously though, it’s really funny that she just wanted to get some loving then go right back to sleep. And this went on for all 2 weeks!

Ah last night at 4:30 mine starts meowing like she’s possessed. I have to wake up, find her her pick her up, carry her back to bed and cuddle her til she goes back to sleep,

This is newish behavior with her, I thinks in her case she wakes up from my bed to get a snack or use the kitty box and forgets how to get back to the bedroom in her old age. I have to come and rescue her. I noticed when we were hunkered down for both Sandy and Irene I had her box and kibble in the same room and that behavior didn’t happen that night.

I wonder if cats get forgetful in their dotage like people

I have two Siamese. I shudder to think what “excessive” meowing would be in this breed. =)

The best way to stop a cat from incessant meowing is to have more cats. THEN you have to tolerate the nightly game of Thunder Paws as they race around your house at night!

This activity, Thunder Paws, tapers off about age 7. That is the age cats tend to sleep most of the night.

We have our two pretty well trained by now. Hubby is the morning guy and they wait for him to wake up, get his coffee and trudge to his office/man cave. It's there that they get their treats. One likes the freeze-dried chicken, the other, salmon. They go to their “places” to get the treats. The male is usually more demanding and will try to get more treats. His last one gets thrown down the stairs, where he runs to retrieve it. After “treat time”, they both come down and join me in bed for a few more hours of nap time. What's really funny is they somehow “know” when he has overslept their regular time and, rather than meow, the male will open the bedroom plantation shutters and the female will scratch on the carpet next to hubby's side of the bed. It usually works! They have us figured out pretty well which means, I guess, they have US trained.
