Cat MEOWing a LOT!

Its driving me NUTS!!!!!!!!!!!! He is going to get us or HIM kicked out of the apartment.

He occasionally USED to meow now and then.

Now, he is talking a lot. Ive been packing and moving stuff. Maybe he is stressed. Im trying everything. Feliway. Playing with them more. Giving them more snacks.

Maybe..or it is spring,right? Maybe he is looking for a mate Did you move into a new place? Maybe it's because he isn't used to the surroundings? I am not sure... I am just shooting in the dark here, sorry.

Re: Cat MEOWing a LOT!

Both neutered? If so, then I think because you are packing it could be disrupting his routine and he senses "change" coming and he is nervous about it. Most animals are all about The Routine and do not like it to be delayed or changed. Are either of you (you and bf) nervous, tense or worried?...he could be picking up on that? You are already doing everything I would suggest to help him. Unfortunately, I think the only thing that will help is for things to be as routine and normal as possible.
Good luck,
Heidi

My cat does the same but goes down stairs and meows like mad. I already fed him, so I know it's not that. I try and play with him and that doesn't seem to work.

Nito likes to go into a cement room in the basement and just HOWL. I really think he just likes the sound of his own voice echoing off the walls. I go down there thinking he's hurt and he comes trotting out all frisky. Silly boy.

Some cats are just vocal... hm, maybe he's got some meezer in him!

Re: Cat MEOWing a LOT!

It could very well be a stress reaction. Try to relax yourself and normalize his routine. Rescue Remedy might help both of you (available at health food stores). Your vet may also be able to prescribe an anti-anxiety med for your cat (last resort, IMO).

If he's not neutered, he's probably calling for a mate. Get him neutered.

Uncontrolled hyperthyroidism can cause some cats to become very vocal. Have him checked out by your vet and given a thyroid test.

Re: Cat MEOWing a LOT!

all 3 of my cats (one passed away, the other i recently got) howl and meow like crazy. azores doesnt know when to shut up. when i call home i can hear her meowing in the background as if shes saying, "is that mommy, is that mommy? tell her i said hi! hello, do you hear me? i said tell her i said hi! that is her right?" she literally comes out the woodwork when she hears people talking. she loves to meow and doesnt care who hears her. shes so bad that the new cat we brought home was the quiet type. we specifically asked for a quiet no meow cat lol, after 2 months, that broad wont shut up too. she likes to meow and howl at night. so its like having babies all day. if they meow we gotta check and see if their stuck, if they are hurt, then the food bowl, then check the litter,if we dont figure it out sometimes giving them treats shuts them up lol. if we dont want either one of them meowing me and the husband have to whisper, cause if they hear us, they come down!
