My cat is driving me crazy! She is constantly meowing! All day and night because she wants to get out. We don`t want to let her out because she goes missing for long periods of time and our neighbour has threatened to hurt her if she goes in his garden. Does anybody know of something to calm her down while inside or even just keep her a little(or a lot) quieter

You could try a Feliway (http://www.feliway.uk.com/feliway_uk.nsf/Page?OpenForm) room diffuser to see if it calms her down, but otherwise you might have to grin and bear until she comes to realize that she's not getting her way. You might also work on making her indoor world as entertaining as possible: lots of catnip, scratching posts, new toys and maybe a window hammock. The worst thing would be to give in and let her out (except perhaps if you were to take her out on a leash) because that would reinforce the concept that if she cries enough, she wins. Good luck, and I hope you don't have to resort to earplugs!
