1. Estrus

If a male cat is over 6 months old but has not been neutered yet, he will howl at night when he is in heat to attract the attention of other female cats. At the same time, he may urinate everywhere and have a bad temper. The behavior of always wanting to run outside appears. This situation may last for about a week. The owner can breed the cat or take the cat to a pet hospital for sterilization surgery. If you choose sterilization, you need to wait until the cat’s estrus period is over. Surgery during estrus will increase the risk of surgery.

2. Boredom

If the owner is usually busy with work and rarely spends time playing with the cat, the cat will purr out of boredom at night, trying to attract the owner’s attention and get the owner to get up and play with it. Some cats will even run directly to the cat. Wake up the owner in bed. Therefore, it is best for the owner to spend more time interacting with the cat, or prepare more toys for the cat to play with. After the cat’s energy is consumed, it will naturally not disturb the owner.

3. Hungry

Cats will also meow when they are hungry at night, trying to remind their owners to feed them. This situation is more common in families that usually feed cats at fixed points. The owner needs to consider whether the time between each meal of the cat is too long. If so, you can prepare food for the cat before going to bed, so that the cat will eat by itself when it is hungry. .

If there are 3 to 4 meals a day, it is generally recommended to wait about 4 to 6 hours between each meal to allow the cat’s digestive system to rest and avoid gastrointestinal discomfort.
