What to Do with a Nocturnal Cat

What to Do with a Nocturnal Cat

Cats are crepuscular, meaning they are active at dawn and dusk. These are the best times to hunt in the wild. Thus your cat may run around your home and want to play during the early morning hours. Don’t try to keep your cat awake during the day since this could stress her and she may lash out. Use the dusk hours for play and exercise time. Exercise and a good meal before bedtime could help your cat get a little more sleep. Ignore your cat if she yowls or jumps around on you at night. If you react, you are reinforcing this undesired behavior as what is needed to get you up. Usean automatic feeder so your cat won’t come begging to be fed in the early morning hours. Keep fun toys outside the bedroom to keep your kitty busy while you sleep. Click here to contact your Crown Point, IN vet to learn more.
