I had some more questions. Stimpy is not neutered yet, since we're still saving up the money for it. But is it normal for him still to be meowing and yowling non-stop? Is breeding season still in affect? It's mostly only when we are trying to sleep, we have a non-standard sleeping schedule, so we head to bed around dawn or very early AM hours usually. That's when he starts yowling and meowing like crazy, pacing the whole apartment. And it's like he wants us to notice him, but then when we try to pay attention to him he runs away and hides. We've tried lots of methods to get him to shush, like spraying him with a water bottle, scolding him by saying NO! and QUIET! as well as closing the door so he can't come in the room at night so he has his own bed and his own cat condo and his own food/water and his own area to sleep in. We also tried letting him sleep with us, like we originally wanted a cat to do, but he just walks all over us and meows in our ears and faces. Is there anything we can get that's cheap to stop him from doing this until we can save up the money for his neuter? The neighbors are complaining to the managers and I don't want to have to give up poor Stimpy or be evicted. I heard about this collar that calms down cats. Does anyone know anything about that collar? Does it work? How much does it cost? Where do you buy it? How long does it last? I am fine with talkative cats, but this is non-stop and at extremely off hours that he doesn't need to be making so much racket during. Also, how do you get him to stop shoveling out cat litter all over the floor? He has many litter boxes to choose from all over the apartment, and he does this with every one. I've tried only putting a small amount of litter in it, and he still does it. It doesn't matter how much litter is in there, a lot or hardly any, he still does it. I clean them out multiple times daily, so it's not like he needs to scoop away poo or pee clumps, as I do that for him. It's getting really messy, and I hate having to vacuum it every single time he goes to use the litter box, as out vacuum is not meant for picking up kitty litter on the carpet and it just spreads it around all over the place even more. I've never had a cat that would do this, all of our other cats just kept the litter inside of the litter box. And he constantly goes from one litter box to the next, before he decides which one he wants to go potty in. They all have the same litter, Tidy Cats clumping. Also, now he is going to the bathroom in my dog's litter box, and it's making my dog not want to go potty in it. We have a small breed dog so he is accustomed to using his own litter box, ever since he was a tiny baby, and he does not like the cat using it. I only use puppy wee pads in the dog's litter box, so I'm not sure why the cat is wanting to use his box, when he has tons of his own cat litter boxes. The wee pads aren't really meant for cat pee, as cat pee smells worse than dog pee. My dog has begun to go outside of the litter box right next to it now that the cat has been going in it, even if I change it multiple times a day. How can I get the cat to STOP using the dog's litter box? My dog has always been great about using the litter box until the cat started to use it. I've tried scolding the cat by chasing him away from it and scolding him by saying NO! and swatting him away from it, but he still uses it. Puppy wee pads are expensive, and I hate having to change it so much just because the cat is using it. I only had to change it once per day when my dog was the only one using it. But now I have to change it a lot just because the cat keeps going in it. Thanks for your help!
