open a window (with a screen on it obviously) and let him stare outside. My cat does it and shes fixed. I just let her on the sun porch and salivate over all the little things she could be killing.

My male cat is fixed and declawed... he just doesn't shut up either. He meows to come in hoping for more food, finds none and proceeds to meow to get back out. You let him out, he doesn't find more food he meows to come back in... over and over. Shut the door and turn up the stereo - he gets the message eventually.

Today he was chewing on a rabbit as I was leaving for work. Not bad for an 11yr old declawed cat. I swear he thinks he'* a tiger. You should see him chase rotweillers; its histarical!

AFTER he'* fixed. Before it'll mean a really high risk of him contracting FIV, which never ends in happy things.
They can get that from saliva to blood transfer as well. If you're going to have your cat outside you really should have them vaccinated for FIV/FIP
Don't forget a Feline Lukemia vaccine, too.

Hate to say it, but you waited way too long to get him fixed, even if it'* not what'* making him yowl.

HIs shots have always been up to date. I got his age when I made the vet appointment, he is 12 months old, and they told me he is not too old to get fixed, so all is good.

We have a Bengal. Very intelligent. We taught him early that what we say goes, and NO means NO. That'* done easily by reinforcement by squirtgun. If he did anything I didn't want him to do, I'd yell "NO" and squirt him. If you know anything about Bengals, you know they like water. But, they only like water on their terms. When it'* my terms, he'* none to happy with the water. Anywho...a few NO'* and reinforcing squirts and he gets the message. Now, most anytime I need to stop him, NO suffices and I usually don't need the squirt gun.

Occasionally he'* all the way across the room and knows he'* faster than I am, so he presses his luck a little. I grab the gun and before I can get a shot off, he stops the bad behavior. On occasion, he decides I'm not going to fire since I usually don't anymore....that is a mistake. Once every 8-12 months or so, he just decides I'm not going to stop him. That'* when a chase ensues around the house and I unload the entire gun. He then spends the rest of a good hour licking and trying not to look like a drowned rat. So far, we've only unloaded a full gunload 3 times ever. Simple 1 or 2 shot squirts....maybe 15 times tops. NO seems to work real well for me. Heck, anymore, I have the squirtgun handy, but 99% of the time the darn thing is empty. Still works just reaching for it.

Maybe try a squirtgun approach....it doesn't hurt the cat at all, and for us worked wonders teaching him what NO means.

I agree with the squirt gun. My ex had a pair of very mischivous kittys that just would not stop. she was the nice one and diddnt want to desipline other than whispering no. I, on the other hand... laid the law... "you wanna claw the pillow? NO! *Squirt*. Jumping on the table, huh? *Squirt* I know you diddnt just jump on my leg and dug your claws into me while im wearing shorts...*squirt* They got the point... a month later..."Baby, the kittys are doing better. I wonder what happened."
