- Meowing cat
One of our cats has taken it upon himself to constantly meow. He’s exactly the same in himself, eating, sleeping behaviour etc apart from him turning the volume up to 11.Posted 4 years ago
He’s the softest cat in the world and everybody loves him for that. ( not one of those cats that you can’t pick up etc)
Don’t want to take him to the vets just yet as that REALLY stresses and upsets him.
Lol. No not Siamese thankfully. He’s a ginger tabby. He’s not normally very demanding and his feeding times haven’t changed and we change his food regularly to keep it different.Posted 4 years ago
Normally dry food with the occasional can. Fed him a sachet just now and he did his usual hoover it instead of eat it then look at me to see where the next one is. Practically hear it clatter into his stomach unchewed. That’s normal though.cranberryMember
Any change in behaviour like starting to miaow loudly should trigger a trip to the vet for a check up – even if he doesn’t like it. You need to rule out any sort of injury or illness in him.
Perhaps a spray or two of Feliway in his carry basket might ease the trip to the V E T somewhat.Posted 4 years agotomtomthepiperssonSubscriber
My cat started to do something similar – mentioned it to the vet on a routine visit and he suggested it could be high blood pressure. Which it was.
He now has a tablet each morning and is right as rain*
* He’s 17yo and a bit deaf now so has cranked the volume up even more to compensate.Posted 4 years agowallopSubscriber
You mention he is eating mainly dried food. Does he look like he needs to pee?
Male cats can sometime get crystallisation in their wee tubes – when our lad had it he meowed a lot, but also seemed very distressed (which I’m guessing yours isn’t) because he couldn’t pee.
In order to prevent it though, the vet suggested we make sure he has plenty of wet food in his diet in order to make sure he is well hydrated. The crystallisation is a very serious condition which can quickly turn fatal.Posted 4 years ago
Booked in at the vets for peace of mind. He’s just come home with a cut ear and scratches on his face too so I assume he’s been duffed up by the dark tabby that lives locally again. The same one that used to sit outside the cat flap and ambush him. He used to yowl a bit when that was going on too.Posted 4 years ago
Unfortunately he hasn’t been. It was a huge comedy of errors, every time he was booked in to get done, something came up to get in the way of the op. Happened loads of times, so much so the vet was getting pissed off we cancelled so often.Posted 4 years ago
I reckon Albert ( the cat in question) had something to do with it……
