It’s the one day you get to sleep in a little late, but your cat is on your head at 6AM singing the song of his (very hungry) people. It might sound ridiculous to say you can control this behavior, but it’s possible through persistence. In this episode of Ask Dr. Andy, Dr. Andy Roark explains how you can get your cat to stop waking you up to eat.
1. Don’t give into your cat’s morning demands… ever.
2. Feed your feline friend later to avoid morning hunger.
3. Tire your cat out at night so they sleep in.
4. Be consistent!
