Default Sudden Voice Change

Hi all,

I recently returned from a weekend out of town, only to find that one of my cats' voice had lowered by half an octave. any ideas as to what could cause this? he is acting normally, and his appetite is as voracious as ever. Thanks!

~Greta

Most likely not, unless he's going through puberty 10 years late...

I have no clue about cat voice changes, but I just wanted to tell you that my daughter's name is Greta (she is four) and I always get VERY excited when I see someone else who also has that name because it is very rare!

Hmmm. At 10, I suspect you are correct that puberty is not involved! I would have to say he probably 'complained' while you were away and strained his voice. Has it returned to normal?

Could be a cat cold. Cats can get laryngitis, too.

I would guess he cried a lot while you were gone -- Mom's voice changed/become really horse after she was spayed. I suspect she cried incessantly before she had her surgery.
