What is your cat’s urgent need to wake you up early?
2 YOUR CAT IS BORED
Another reason why your cat wakes you up in the morning is boredom. Your fluffy kitties have gotten their beauty sleep, and they’re ready for some playtime. Unfortunately, you’re still asleep and unable to provide entertainment.
So, your cat has to get you up. Cats that spend the better part of their day sleeping are more likely to wake you up in the morning. That’s because they’re bored during the day and want to spend some quality time with you before you get to work.
You’d better provide them with enough toys and scratching posts to keep them busy. Most cats go crazy for the red dot laser, and it’s one of the easiest ways to make even the laziest cats active.
3 YOUR CAT IS SEEKING ATTENTION
Do you know that adult cats never meow at one another? They use body language to communicate.
Only kittens meow to their mothers to express their needs. As such, it’s curious that cats use their voice to communicate with us. So, whenever your cat meows in the morning, they might be seeking attention.
Even though cats play it cool, they need human contact and care as much as any other pet. Some cats might not like to be held, but they will want you to dote on them. If you tend to get home late and can’t pay your cat a lot of attention, your feline might wake you up in the morning so that you can make up for it.
That’s one of the reasons why your cat is so affectionate in the morning. The other one is that your kitty is hungry and trying to curry favors.
4 YOUR CAT WANTS OUT/IN
My cat usually wakes me up in the morning whenever she wants to get out and can make quite the noise until I drag myself out of bed.
So, if you have an indoor-outdoor cat, they might wake you up because they have some important business outside or want to come inside. On the other hand, if you tend to close your cat in the bedroom with you, they might want you to let them out to explore the rest of the house.
