Q. My cat wakes me up 6 AM every morning with constant meowing and yowling. He's age 2 and neutered. Playing with him before bed isn't working! Help!

A. Constant yowling in the morning may be a sign that your cat is bored or very hungry, or may indicate potential pain. Scheduling a wellness exam to make sure he is healthy is always a good first step. If the problem is behavior related, then adding in more play sessions throughout the day (not just at night), using a pheromone diffuser to help keep your cat calm, or purchasing an automatic feeder to get him satisfied with breakfast before you wake up may all help.
