So my cat Guinness has been OTJ since October 2009. He's a on very strict diet now. Merrick canned with a little dehydrated raw. He get's fed just under an ounce every four hours (6 times in a 12 hour period). Basically, it works out to a full 5.5oz can a day. The thing is, because I am feeding him so much and he has always been obsessed with food, he is constantly following me around and meowing at me to feed him. Whenever I happen to walk into the kitchen, he's there meowing. He wakes us up in the middle of the night (even though his automatic feeder feeds him at 2am) and just stands in the hallway in front of our bedroom and meows and meows. If I shut the door, he scratches on it until someone comes out. He's always been a fairly vocal cat, but he is starting to drive everyone in our family crazy. He's never been a terribly affectionate cat (accept to me at quiet times), so now he just eats and meows, eats and meows. My dh wants to lock him in the garage at night (we live in So. Cal, so it's not too cold), but I think that might stress him out and raise his BG's again. I'm wondering if there are any natural calming aids that might help in this situation. I used to use Rescue Remedy to try and stop them from peeing in the house, but it never seemed to work. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get him to stop this behavior? I know it's best not to feed him when he is meowing (it just reinforces the behavior), but he is always meowing, so I'd never feed him if I tried that approach. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. BTW, his BG has been in the 50-60 range since going OTJ.
