Cats meowing in the night!

Has anyone else got a cat who meows non stop at night?

He used to be fine until we moved house (3 and a half years ago) but since weve been here its almost every night! He sits at the bottom of the stairs and cries.

Ive tried playing with the laser light with him just before bed and other toys, Ive tried giving him more food at dinner time, weve left the lamp on for him, weve had the radio playing for him and have his favourite blankets laid out! He has access to all but three rooms (he doesnt need to use our bathroom or en suite and they are kept out of one of the bedrooms).

I end up having to go and sit with him on the sofa until he falls asleep and then sneak out but that can take anything from 20 minutes to a few hours.

Then he starts again at 7am, but he changes tactic and jumps onto the headboard and dive-bombs us - we recently introduced an automatic feeder to see if that helps but he just comes in after hes eaten!

The vet just suggests Feliway despite us trying it several times and it never helping.

Any other suggestions?! Were genuinely looking at buying a bungalow as we think thatll help 😂

Our little darling cries . She started after her brother died 19 mnths ago and had just got louder and louder.
We thought she was missing him /getting a little senile she's 15. But now think she's just a Brat.
Nothing stops her ,food/treats/toys/attention/ She is really loud at 0300 and 0700.
She often sits at the top of the stairs crying at full volume for no apparent reason .Got to love her

Its so horrible, I hate it when they cry and theres seemingly no way to help them stop.

He finally went to sleep at 12:00, then the other one decided to meow because she had a present for us, which woke him back up and hes started again

Brats they definitely are! They rule the roost!

I swapped from feliway to pet remedy when I was introducing a new cat. I bought the wipes as well as the plug-ins, just wipe it over the cat.

We had a cat that did this , 1am hed kick off howling and making the most awful noises , got so bad the neighbours complained !
We had to rehome him in the end which I am NOT suggesting btw .
We still dont know why he did it and neither did the vets,we tried everything .
He did stop in his new place but were not sure why .
Not much help sorry but really hope you find the answer

My little girl cries in the night when she's unsettled or lonely, like after a house move or if we've been away on holiday. It's heart wreching! The only things I could suggest are lots of attention which you're already doing. Will he sleep in your bedroom if you put a bed in there for him? Mine usually just wants to be with us.

One of mine is a mobile nighttime yodeller - he is worse around clock changes for some reason as the seasons change. I think that we have mostly learned to sleep through...until he comes into the bedroom. 😀😼

We are having the exact same issue, with our british blue, Benny, aged 15. He never used to meow at all, ever, now its just over and over - early hours of the morning and randomly later in the day. He actually seems to be in a bit of a trance we think it might possibly be dementia although he is still fine in every other aspect, eating, knowing when its food time etc. (Running away from me when its time to go outside) He also loves a drink in the sink! Its a mystery like everything else about cats...
