meowing problem!

Hey guys and girls!

Usually when i walk into my cats room it almost immediately starts meowing for food. Even when she isnt hungry. But today something quite odd happened. She meowed in the kitchen for food? I fed her some wet food. After she ate it and all she was still meowing. LIKE WHAT?!

Some cats are just very vocal and will meow for all kinds of reasons. Siamese are most know for this trait, but you'll find these "talkers" in all breeds.
They have noticed that we humans make noise when we communicate with each other so they figure they'd better start making some noise if they want to be noticed.
They can obviously mean "Feed me" or " I need to go out NOW", but they can also mean "I missed you" or "I'm unhappy" or "Look Mommy, I brought you a present".

She may not be meowing for food but for affection, attention, play or just companionship.

Cat owners' prayer: "Lord help me be the person my cat thinks I am"

I usually try talking to our Janus or petting her and that usually suffices. At night though, when we are sleeping, she'll get a Janus noooo! If that doesn't do the job, I shut the bedroom door. Took a while but now if the door closes, she's quiet in less than a minute.

If Locke and Auri are hungry, they'll both go and sit where their food is kept and meow at us till we feed them. They get fed at the same times each day so they've learned within an hour when they're supposed to get fed.

Cats meow at us for a variety of reasons so she may not, as Marcia's said, be specifically wanting food.

Or maybe she's figured out she can train YOU by meowing and you'll give her food! Brilliant!

I'd suggest not giving her food when she's meowing. Either pick one specific time of day to feed her and stick to it - not giving in if she's loud - or wait until she's quiet then feed her. If you keep giving her food for meowing she'll keep meowing - it's working!

She's fixed, right?

Not in heat?

Cats, females, in particular, will meow till the cows come home when they are in heat. The first cat we had (didn't know much about cats at that time!) just meowed and meowed, all night at the window, all day - roaming around the house.

When we couldn't handle any more, we took her to the vet, and he told us she was in heat! Got her spayed, and she never "said" another word!
