why does my cat meow all the time male
My 5 year old cat, Bear, has been doing the constant meowing thing about 5 or 6 months now. He has been to the vet twice now. Nothing is physically wrong with him. He also is a bit more aggressive. By that I mean that if he is frightened or threatened even slightly, he is likely to bite or scratch or at least growl and lunge. Essentially, he has become high strung and jumpy. I take it as a good sign that he never does a whole lot of damage, so he must be trying to warn me without hurting me. He always was a bit more aggressive/feisty than any other cat I ve had, but it is worse now. I enjoyed his cattitude before but it s out of hand now. I got him at 16 weeks and he was initially an only cat. I doubt if it s any trauma from prior to me having him. Maybe he was a semi-feral kitten? I got him in the shelter with no history given to me except he came to the shelter alone no siblings, no Mama.
He was about 1 1/2 yrs old when I introduced 2 year old Bella to the house. She s much more mellow. I bought a house and we moved in 11 months ago. Maybe it s that change but the crying and nervousness didn t start right away. Maybe it s the giant owl statue the neighbor has on the fence that I know Bear doesn t like that keeps him so worked up. He hisses at it when he sees it. Possibly, it s another predator outside. I haven t seen a stray cat in my yard, since we first moved in, but there is something burying poop in my yard, could be a stray cat or a bobcat since only cats bury poop with cover up marks around it, not that I can do anything about that except maybe close the blinds at night so they can t see it. Maybe Bear s just bored and restless and I need to play with him more.
Yesterday, at the vet, he was so freaked out he attacked me twice and also my other cat. The vet had to wrap him in a towel just to get him into the carrier. This is not a new vet but Bear was never like this at the vet before. He has been going there since he was a kitten. He s usually curious and explores the room. The vet prescribed kitty prozac for him. I don t think I m going to get that filled, now that I think about it. He isn t that unmanageable at home, if I stay away when he s in a mood. The biting doesn t happen that often and it doesn t upset me too much. If you have cats, you get used to the occasional scratch or bite. They get their tails stepped and even the calmest cat will get ya. My house is generally calm with only me and my adult son ( who Bear thinks he belongs to). Bear usually gets along with my other cat just fine.
They play together and lay and stand close to each other, so I know they are comfortable together. They have three or four litter pans for two cats and yet they use them all interchangeably, another sign they are ok with each other. My cats have a lot more space in the new house. They have 2 new cat trees in addition to the old one. I got those to give them some vertical space as Jackson Galaxy would suggest. They have two cat fountains, lots and lots of toys and are generally spoiled. They don t go outside,except a roll on the patio once or twice a year. They do get to go in the garage, which they seem to think is outside to them. They have lots of interesting wildlife to watch in the windows like quail and lizards. I just can t figure out why he is so much more crazy now. I m out of ideas and ok the crying is the part that gets old after a while.
I imagine he feels my tension when the crying starts to get old. Plus, I just want him to be happy and content. and like me. :)
Reply If your cat hasn't been neutered and is old enough to have reached sexual maturity, his cry very likely is a mating call. Male cats reach "puberty" at anywhere from 4 months in age to one year. If he yowls loudly and persistently through the night, he very likely is trying to attract females for mating purposes. Look for other evidence that may support this belief -- such as urine spraying, wandering off and restless behavior. Remember, one very easy way to make this type of crying to stop is by getting your cat neutered. Neutering stops mating behaviors, keeps your cat healthier and also prevents feline overpopulation issues -- a serious and growing epidemic in this world.
