Default Alarm clock kitty ~help needed!

We've just recently adopted this handsome chappie..He's called Sirius.
Bit of background:hes seven months old and is due to go and get castrated on Wednesday,hes up to date with worming ,jabs etc .He mostly stays indoors but will follow me out if im pegging washing out etc.
Anyway every morning without fail at around 5.30 he starts meowing really loudly.At first I used to rush downstairs and feed him thinking it might be that and yes,he does scoff his food but then continues to meow.He had dried kitten mix out permanently and two pouches daily..one in the morn one in the eve.
Why is he doing it? what can I do to stop him,if at all possible?,and is it something I should be worried about?Any answers or hints would be greatly received as im really tired!!!

He wants company... he has trained you well... he mieows, you come running

Does he come upstairs? (is he allowed?)

Try a really good play session before you go to bed to tired him out a bit.. and I know it's hard, but try and ignore him when he starts mieowing in the early hours (to break the habit)

He should grow out of it to be honest, when he gets a bit more independant, settles in a bit more and realises that even though he can't see you, you are still around.

He is very beautiful and I love the name

It's a cat thing lol

Mine aren't too bad with me as they know there ain't a chance of me waking up or getting me out of bed but if mark is still sleeping they'll meow, jump on him, paws in his mouth cus they know he'll give them a fuss if he wakes up.

You're lucky me and the OH have the jrt, the chi x and 2 cats who all start to paw at us and lick our faces to wake us up.........thankfully they have the sense to wait until 7am but when you work until 1am that's still too early!

We've tried all ways to stop them but if we ignore them the damned chi x goes under the blankets and bites my butt....lol...not funny if you're still asleep though!
I'm sure John puts him upto that as well so I usually clout John.....can't exactly smack a 2lb mutt can I?

He's just a typical cat who is busy training you to get up at the time he wants, not you!

We have the same thing here with Cadbury who begins his wailing about 5 minutes before the alarm clock goes off at 5:45 for Barry to get up because he knows it's about breakfast time and he's in a hurry!

Same here Yoda will leave me alone if i ignore him or just curl up and sleep by me but will harass my other half and meow and yowl incessantly at him if he goes towards the kitchen without actually wanting anything.
