Does anyone know how to shut up a noisy cat?

I have tried everything. Putting pennies in a can and shaking them when he meows, Squirting him with water, ignoring him. It is driving my nuts. He is neutered and goes outside and I have had him at the vets. He meows from the time he gets up until bedtime( and that is only because we put him in the laundry room so we can sleep) Does anyone have any ideas on how to stop this. I want to get rid of him but my husband and son love him.

    Now that the behavior is so engrained, it will be hard to undo. But you should have some success rewarding the cat with food when he's quiet.

    I had the same problem cat squaking at all hours, i squirted him with a water out of a water squirt gun, he stopped after getting soaked several times.

    other than the meowing, is he a good cat? I would hate for you to get rid of him b/c who is going to want him? Does he get enough attention? Sorry, i have no ideas!

    How old is the cat? Sometimes a thyroid condition can cause increase vocalization- this can be diagnosed by bloodowrk. A behavioralist specialist told me (re: my own cat) to feed her

    at night... she was so busy feeding, she did not cry as much
