how do you get a cat to shut up? lol

Ugh, one of my cats drives me crazy at night! He'll walk around the house screaming and attacking the other cat. He makes so much noise that it wakes me up at like 3 in the morning and then I can't get back to sleep. How can I get him to be quiet?? We just moved a couple months ago and I have not let him outside yet (he needs to know where "home" is and where the food comes from lol). So I'm sure this is part of the problem, but still, he needs to be quiet.

I yell and throw things. Sometimes I lock him in the bathroom and he doesn't do it for a few weeks.

Duct tape -- lots of it! :)

Maybe he's bored and wants a friend? Do you just have one cat? Cats sleep all day and are up at night so I'm sure he's just bored, especially if he's originally an outdoor cat!

We have another cat but he picks on her. They aren't friends lol. And she sleeps all day and all night soooo.....she's like the perfect cat! Lol.

I'm sure he is bored, at our old house he was an outdoor/indoor cat and we are making the transition to outdoor cat right now, so I know once he is outside things will settle, but until then it's driving me crazy!

I like the duct tape idea though ;)

Throw his butt outside!!! He's getting stir-crazy being cooped up. He knows where the food bowls are he's not going to go on an adventure hike the first few times he's out.

We didn't keep the cat inside at all when we first got her, she prefers to do her "business" outside instead of in the litter box.

She learned real quick to be quiet at night if she wants to be in (cold/rainy nights) and on the nice nights she doesn't even come back at bedtime. (Dogs and cat get one last chance around 11pm to come in for the night) Dogs are always in by then and the cat gets to choose.

Duct tape is a good alternative though!!!
