We used to keep the door open all the time, but now because of our third cat we have to sleep with the door shut, and Soot wants to be with us but not LOCKED IN with us. I hate using negative reinforcement and try to just ignore her, but about half the time I break down and use the spray bottle. This has been going on for months now, and I have not seen any improvement. Any ideas on a solution?

oh, that’s a pain.  i went through that the first few months i had my first cat home with me.  he came from another home, and it’s apparent to me he was allowed to sleep with the people who dumped him.

i invested in ear plugs.  seriously.  that’s the only way i slept through the night until he got used to it.
