Recently I moved into a new apartment. I have two male cats, both neutered. They're mostly indoor cats, but back when I rented a place with a yard, they got to go outside occasionally (until one of them got into a fight). They haven't been outside in half a year, however. Lately one of them has been getting a lot antsier. He has started to meow a lot, and I can't figure out what he wants. I start petting him, but he keeps meowing whilst purring. I try playing with him, which he'll do for about 2 minutes, and then start meowing again. I make sure that there's plenty of food and fresh water, and that the litter box is clean. Lately he's started waking me up in the morning by meowing and stepping on me, which he hasn't done in the past. He also sits by the apartment door a lot, pawing under the crack, reaching for the doorknob, and meowing. I know he can hear/smell the other goings on in the apartment building, and I'm sure he's curious... but I can't let him out roaming the halls. Part of me feels bad for even having indoor cats, that they should be out frolicing in the fields, but in an apartment, that isn't an option. The other cat is much more laid back, he meows occasionally, but no more than normal. So Super-meowing cat has a playmate when I'm not around, I make sure there's toys lying around to keep him amused, and clear window space for him to sit at... I'm not really sure what else to do. I like my cats, but the constant meowing is starting to really get on my nerves, almost to the point where I dislike my cat more than I like him. I don't want this to be the case... So any of you out there with cats, please help me out.
