We have a 5 month old kitten who is great. He sleeps with us or our kids upstairs at night but, in the mornings when he's hungry he won't just go downstairs to his bowl to eat. He keeps meowing and bothering us as we're trying to sleep so, that someone will come down with him. He has food in his bowl so, that's not the issue. This starts around 4 am every morning and we're getting very tired of this. If we try to go back to bed he comes running back upstairs meowing, etc.
We don't really want to have food upstairs if we can help it as there's really no room for it. Especially since we had to get a 2nd litter box for upstairs since he wouldn't go down to use the other one in the mornings either.
Please help me get some sleep!
