Kabosu-san's diabetes is still not well regulated, so most days he is very hungry. He is asking for food very often and eats a lot in general. I am trying to feed him small portions every other hour, mixing a 1-2 table spoons of wet food with water. He is also a neighbourhood cat who is used to go wherever he wants, he'd enter any open door he sees and start begging for food. These past few days I'm not letting him wander on his own (although I take him for walks sometimes) watching what he's doing. So usually when I refuse to feed him (after he ate 2x his daily allowance), he'd just start meowing to let him out (so he can eat elsewhere). I am resisting, but that's extremely annoying at night. He'd just come to my bed, sit beside my face and meow, and if I try to ignore him, he starts scratching the carpet until I get up and give him food. This happens 3-5 times during the night. I am exhausted and not getting enough sleep. I also need to work during the day. The bad thing is that I believe he knows that once he starts destroying the carpet, I will get up... He knows that works better than meow. Ah, sometimes I leave a bit of food in his bowl when I go to bed, yet he goes straight to me meowing for food without even checking the kitchen! Any ideas how to NOT feed my cat every couple of hours during the night? I really need to sleep!
