• WE HAVE ISSUES WITH OUR AMERICAN MEDIUM HAIR/MAINE COON CAT. HE RUNS BACK AND FORTH AROUND THE HOUSE AND MEOWS CONSTANTLY FOR ABOUT A HALF HOUR BEFORE HIS BREAKFAST, DINNER, AND NIGHT TIME SNACK FEEDINGS. WE TRY AND PLAY WITH HIM, STAY QUIET, , IGNORE HIM, ETC. BUT HE KEEPS GOING. WE SPRAY HIM, YELL AT HIM, CLOSE HIM OFF IN A ROOM, BUT HE KEEPS GOING. WHAT CAN WE DO TO GET PEACE AND QUIET SO WE CAN SLEEP LATER, MAKE DINNER, AND WATCH TV IN QUIET? THANKS! P.S. - HE IS FED WET FOOD 3 TIMES DAILY B/C HE GETS INSULIN FOR DIABETES

    Hi Robert,
    I recommend that you call and talk with your local veterinarian about this question. Activity before the feeding times can be normal but not to the extent that you are describing. The diabetes can be a factor in the way this needs to be treated. Your local vet will be able to give you the best advice on how to address this since they know your pet’s overall medical history.
