We adopted him last Oct. we've been trying to change his ways. This is a nusiance to our family of 5. I can't lock him up, he is loud and you can hear him all over the house. He can't go outside, but this has been worse since it has been warming up. I'm at my wits end and my husband wants him to go back to the shelter, which is a no kill shelter. Any suggestions to help keep him?Answer Question

Do they come and check on the cat? That sounds a little extreme.

I forgot to say that he is declawed in the front (this is how I adopted him). He about 5 years old at this point. I've had a past pet cat get FIV (HIV in the cat world). Since he passed away--and after many vet visits---they all say keep the cats inside. I keep his food bowl to the brim, and he has a bed, and a blanket from the shelter. He is really cool, BUT this issue is making it hard on the entire household because he wakes us all up. No they don't check, but my reasons are very valid for keeping him as an indoor cat. I am thinking of allowing him in the backyard on a leash. I'm just asking for help because I don't want to give him back. I made a commitment, but my whole family comes first.
