My new 10 month old kitten rarely "meows". Instead, he usually makes more of a grunting sound and occasionally when he seems to want something bad he makes this weird "cawing" sound, almost like a crow. I know not all cats meow, but has anybody else had a cat making sounds like this? He's the happiest cat I've ever met and is almost purring so I doubt something is wrong, but I'm just curious.

I can't offer any suggestion why your cat can't meow properly

but just thought I'd tell you about one of my parents cat who didn't meow until she was 3 years old, and she didn't purr either

we assumed she had a problem with her voicebox, but then one day she meowed and then later she purred we were amazed
after that we couldn't shut her up

it could be a voicebox problem
it sounds sweet to me

one of my cats does a double meow, se goes 'memeow' it is really sweet

sounds like a cute kitten

His noises are kind of cute. It's almost like he doesn't know how to meow and is still learnings. He's still young and I recently adopted him from a foster family who said he had been a stray. So maybe he's just learning how to meow since living with people.
