Why do Cats Meow? 5 Reasons You can't Ignore


When you don't have a cat, you may think that a cat likes to bark as much as a dog and will meow all day long.

But in reality this is not the case.

Cats seldom talk, and it is difficult to get them to open their mouths unless in special circumstances.

Of course, if your cat is a "talkative" cat, it's a different story.


Some cat owners love to listen to the cat’s crisp meowing sound, and even actively tease the cat to make it meow.

But I advise you not to do this, in case it gets angry, not only can you not hear the meowing, but it is also easy to be scratched by its claw!

If the cat in your family is not "talkative" and rarely makes a sound, but all of a sudden, it keeps meowing at you.

In this case, you should pay attention to it.

The cat meowing is not for no reason. It may be because of these five reasons. Don't ignore it!

Reason 1: The cat has a problem and can't solve it on its own

Although cats are physically flexible and omnipotent at home, in fact, they also have troubles.

When a cat encounters something that it can't handle, it will ask the cat owner for help as soon as possible.

For example, the cat is sick, the litter bowl is not clean, and the cat wants to eat snacks, which the cat can't handle on its own, and the cat needs you to help it.

So when the cat keeps meowing at you, don't ignore it and analyze the reason.

If your cat often meows because the litter bowl is not cleaned, it is recommended that you use Lionpapa cat litter refills with Litter Genie standard/plus pails.

11 layers of specific EVOH material can effectively ward off unpleasant odors, cleaning cat litter is convenient and clean, and give cats a comfortable sleep environment 365 days a year.

Reason 2: When it comes to dinner, there is nothing to eat

Cats are very sensitive to food, and many small animals focus on the food all the time.

If the owner of the cat does not give it a meal at dinnertime, it will make the cat collapse!

In order to remind you to feed on time, the cat will keep meowing at you, and some cats will even wake you up at 5:00 or 6:00 in the morning.

The purpose is very simple, that is, it is hungry.

If you ignore it, a cat with a bad temper is very likely to bite you.

Reason 3: Feeling lonely at home alone

Although cats are usually relatively independent and like to entertain themselves, it is still recommended not to leave them alone at home for too long, because cats will also be boring.

If you want to travel far, it is best to let your friends take care of it.

If the cat stays alone for a long time, it will become flustered, and when you get home, it will become very clingy, meowing at you all the time, complaining that you left it at home alone.

Reason 4: Emotional panic in the proestrus to call for help

When a cat is in estrus, it will become extremely clingy and will meow at its owner for no reason.

This is actually a signal for the cat to panic and ask for help, because physical torture will make the cat very lack of sense of security and a bit at a loss.

If your cat is purely domesticated and has no plan to have a baby, it is recommended that you take it for neutering as soon as possible, otherwise it will be torture for both you and the cat.

Reason 5: The cat is afraid that you will die, it is worried about you

This reason sounds absurd, but it actually exists.

The cat is a kind of very spiritual pet, although it usually behaves very aloof, but in fact, the cat loves you very much.

Cats will meow at you under special circumstances, simply because they want to know if you are still alive.

For example, when you are in the shower, the cat will be afraid that you will be drowned in the water, so it will meow at the door and worry about you.

When you are asleep, the cat will meow in your ear and touch you. It is afraid that you will never wake up if you fall asleep.
