Soft Spoken Kitten

So we've had our 9 month old kitten for about 5-6 weeks.... and he's barely spoken a word.

Cricket often does the little purr meow in the morning/welcoming us home/etc. But he hardly meows and seems to have a hard time meowing.... if he does, it's very soft, high pitch meows.

So I was kind of curious if there is any way for us to encourage him to be more talkative? I'm currently trying to encourage it by treats.... but I wasn't sure if anything else could be done....?

Or just I accept my soft-spoken kitten? Any tips would be greatly appreciated

Re: Soft Spoken Kitten

Try talking to him. I've read that cats sometimes stop talking if no one talks to them. Maybe his previous owners didn't talk to him.

On the other hand, Cali doesn't make any noise at all except a little "k" sound with air. Like a little "kaaaaa." Charlee only trills like R2D2. Cinderella meows when she wants something.

But Cleo! She's my talker!!! I love it! Except when she walks away talking about me to all her sisters.

Have some conversations with Mr. Cricket and see what happens.

Cali, Cinderella, Cleo and Charlee

Oh believe me... we talk to him a lot

Every chance I get, I try to have a conversation with him... which is why I think he's gotten a liiiiitle more talkative... but he never seems to "tell a story" is that makes any sense. Both my fiance' and my previous family cats would talk your eat off when you came home.

I think you should keep talking to him. My cat only makes clicking sounds, but I talk to both my cats all the time, one of my cats actually sounds like its talking, its really funny to see her try to form words!

Re: Soft Spoken Kitten

He most definitely squeaks! It's pretty cute.

And he was a lot more vocal today! Not sure if it's because of food or attention... we've been very busy the past week so he's become a bit clingy.
