I used to live with a roommate who had a cat and I did as well. They got along well but when she moved out she took her cat with. Now my cat cries all night so loudly it wakes me up. She cries during the day too but it is less noticeable. I have tried all I could think ok. I will feed her, play with her a bit (usually mostly during the day it’s hard to wake up at 5am to play), try to comfort her and even just ignore her. Nothing seems to work and it isn’t getting better. Does she miss the other cat? Does she want attention or to play? I would love to get another cat for her to play with but I really cannot afford it right now. Is there any advice you can give to help me with this situation?
