How to get my cat to stop meowing so I can sleep?! Read details, 3rd night in a row.
I always sleep with my cat in my room but now she won't let me sleep. I won't let her wander the house unsupervised because she's gotten into trouble before where she shreds paper and an important document for a landlord was destroyed. She also needs to be told not to jump on counters and tables but with everyone asleep, who's going to stop her? I want to sleep and this is the 3rd night. I leave our bedroom door open all day when I'm home so she can come out so it's not like she's cooped up unless I have to leave the house for something. She isn't hungry - food and water are there in my room and the litter box is as well - so it's not that. I can't get her to stop the meowing and it's her demanding meow but I end up messing up my room by throwing stuff - pillows, any kind of clothing I can reach, just stuff that won't hurt her - to get her to stop and after a few hours it does and then around sunrise she starts back up but at this point I've only gotten 3 hours of sleep if even that.
