If you’re like me, then you love your cat. And if your cat is like mine, then she loves to sleep with you at night. The problem is that cats can be loud and obnoxious when they wake up in the morning—they want their food and they want it now! But what if I told you there was an easy way to train your cat not to wake up at night? Well there is: all it takes is patience and persistence on both sides of this equation.
MAKE SURE YOUR CAT’S NEEDS ARE MET
Make sure your cat is not hungry. Your pet should eat two to three times a day, and if you don’t have time to feed them when they’re hungry, consider adding food dispensers in their bowls so that they won’t be tempted to raid the fridge at night.
Make sure your cat is not thirsty. Cats don’t tend to drink as much water as dogs do—but if yours does seem thirsty or dehydrated during the day (or after running around outside), give him some water before bedtime or try giving him some wet food instead of dry kibble in order for him not feel so parched at night!
Make sure your cat isn’t too hot or too cold: Cats are built like little tanks; if one stays indoors all day then chances are good that there won’t be any problem here since we can control temperature better than dogs do but still keep things comfortable enough inside our homes without leaving windows open which would allow pests like mosquitoes into our homes while we sleep (and bugs love sleeping!).
AVOID SLEEPING CLOSE TO YOUR CAT
One of the most important things you can do is to avoid sleeping close to your cat. Cats love being close to their people, and if you let them sleep in your bed or on top of you when they wake up, it will become a habit. The best way for them to feel comfortable is for them to have their own room with blankets and toys available so that they don’t feel like intruders into your space.
When I first adopted my two cats, I had never owned another domestic animal before so I was nervous about what kind of habits they might develop over time due to our proximity as roommates (and we still are!).
However, after some trial and error with different settings throughout the house each night we found an appropriate spot where my two kitties could rest peacefully but safely at night while I slept peacefully next door without having any disturbances from their little paws running around underfoot during those hours before sunrise came again!
GIVE YOUR CAT A TOY TO KEEP HER BUSY AT NIGHT
As we mentioned, toys are a great way to distract your cat from the noise of bedtime. Cats love them, and they can keep them occupied for hours at a time.
Here are some of our favorite toys for cats:
- Catnip mice (available in many different sizes)
- Feather feathers (the kind that come out of an arrow)
- Catnip balls with bells inside them
PLAY WITH YOUR CAT BEFORE BEDTIME
Play with your cat before bedtime. Play with your cat before going to sleep, and play with her when she’s awake. Give her lots of attention and love, but don’t play just for the sake of playing. Make sure that what you’re doing has something to do with getting ready for bed or falling asleep (like brushing your teeth).
Play can also help distract cats from any unwanted behavior they might be exhibiting while they’re awake: scratching furniture or walls, digging in litter boxes etcetera…
KEEP YOUR BEDROOM DOOR SHUT WHEN YOU’RE NOT IN THE ROOM
Keep your bedroom door shut when you’re not in the room. When it’s time for bed, close the door to your room and keep it closed until morning. Make sure that any access points outside of this room (such as a window) are also closed so that cats can’t creep into other rooms or areas of the house during the night.
TO TRAIN YOUR CAT PUT YOUR CAT ON A SCHEDULE
A cat’s natural instincts are to be active during the day and rest at night, but if you’re not careful, they can get into trouble when it comes time to sleep.
Cats need their own space so they can relax and cool down, which is why it’s important to make sure that your pet has something safe to do when the sun goes down—like hide out in the laundry room or basement—but also somewhere where he or she can feel comfortable sleeping during the day (or even just relaxing).
- Feed him/her regularly throughout the day/evening hours by using food as an incentive instead of punishment; if this doesn’t work then try putting some sort of treat inside his/her bowl before bedtime each night!
GIVE YOUR CAT A TREAT WHEN SHE’S QUIET
As a treat, you can give your cat a favorite food or toy. If she’s quiet and waiting for a treat, then it will become easier to train your cat to be quiet at night as well. You also need to make sure that the treat is given at the right time and in a timely manner so she knows what’s expected of her when she’s being quiet in the future.
The best way to do this is by using treats as rewards when your cat does something good or learns something new during training sessions with you (like learning how much noise he makes).
If you’re having trouble getting him trained properly then try giving him some treats after each session instead of just randomly throughout the day because this will get his attention more quickly than just randomly popping into rooms every once in awhile!
CATS CAN BE TRAINED TO BE QUIET AT NIGHT BUT IT TAKES PATIENCE AND PERSISTENCE
Cats are independent and motivated by different things than dogs are. It is important to know that cats will not be as easily trained as a dog. Cats need to feel that they have earned what they get, so you should never give them anything for nothing!
If your cat has a habit of waking you up at night, here’s how you can teach him/her to be quiet:
- Buy a toy that resembles something your cat likes (i.e., balls). If possible, try to find one that has two sides: one side has some sort of noise toy attached (like keys), while the other side contains catnip or treats for reinforcement purposes only . This way if he does wake up during the night but starts making noise again immediately after returning back into his room then he’ll get rewarded by playing with both sides at once instead of just one side alone which would probably result in frustration later on down road when things don’t turn out exactly right like everyone hoped they would.”
A well-trained cat is a happy cat, so give your feline friend the time and attention she deserves. Remember to keep her safe and healthy by avoiding any potential dangers, including being too close to your bed or allowing her on top of you during the night. If you don’t have time for training classes or want more hands-on experience, try giving her some toys that help keep her busy at night such as a laser pointer or cardboard box cut into smaller pieces with holes in them for scratching posts etcetera .
Finally remember that cats are very sensitive animals so make sure their needs are met before starting any kind of training process – if not then go back up another level because it won’t work!
