Readers of Matata's diary would be well informed of his bad habit of yowling at unearthly hours in the night, disturbing his human care-takers sleep!I was perplexed by this habit and initially thought it might be due to a natural instinct for mating , a common phenomenon in male cats.
I finally reconciled with the drastic fact that i would have to live my life adjusting myself to his unearthly night yowls but my house-keeper Sabina.Dias who stays overnight could never adjust to the yowling, her sleep being ruined and hence her house-keeping daily chores of the house also effected.Both my cat, Matahari & Matata are very attached to Sabina as she feeds them and grooms them most of the time.
Just a week ago Sabina happened to arrive home a bit late and hence both the cats were fed at approx 2100 hrs, their normal feeding time being approx 1800 hrs. Strangely y that night Matata was silent and did not yowl, the first time in months he showed such behaviour .A idea struck me and the next day i informed Sabina to give both the cats a late dinner, post 2000hrs.My plan worked and tomcat matata has stopped "Yowling" during the night for the past one week. He does yowl early in the morning at approx 0500 hrs, his wake-up call for his human care-takers.
