My Monster cat starts yowling outside the bedroom door the second he hears my alarm going off (he's not allowed in the bedroom because the hubby doesn't want cat fur on the bed). I suppose I should be glad he waits until the alarm goes off, but I'm one of those people who needs to hit the snooze a few times before I actually get moving. I can block him out enough to go back to sleep, but I know the yowling stresses out my bird. Does anybody know of a way I could possibly break him of the habit? I've tried waiting until he's quiet for a few minutes before I get up and tend to his needs, but it's not working. I've also tried the squirt bottle trick, but it shuts him up for a whole thirty seconds.
