Common Behavior Problems

Cats Who Meow or Cry Too Much

Obviously, cats meowing and making other sounds are normal cat behaviors. Whether or not your cat is doing this too much, depends partially on your expectations and tolerance level.

Cats learn to meow to get things they want. If meowing causes you to put food down, pet your cat, or play with him, then you cat knows that meowing works. This routine can get out of hand, to the point that your cat meows almost constantly in order to get you to do something.

Cats can also meow when they are anxious or not feeling well. For this reason, it’s always a good idea to have your cat checked by your veterinarian, especially if she is older.

Meowing and vocalizing at night is a fairly common problem in older cats. Behaviorists don’t know for sure why older cats do this. Often we can recommend changes in your cat’s environment, to manage the behavior. Your veterinarian may want to prescribe medication.
Through a behavior consultation we can help you sort out what’s going on for your cat.
