Hi - I posted a while ago about nearly 8 year old rescue cat whodwill not stop miawing - well, it's getting unbearable. He miaws pretty much constantly - every time we look at him, every time we don't, feeding, not feeding, walking around, sitting down. I just don't know what to do. The only time he is quiet is when he's asleep, which isn't that often! Any ideas before we all go mad???
It might be worth trying a feliway diffuser to chill him out a bit? Or dose him up on catnip? Our cat occasionally has a miaowy day for no apparent reason. Fortunately she has a special miaow for "something is really wrong that you need to fix asap" such as she can't get to her litter tray, she's gotten into the bath but can't get back out or has gotten up onto the chest of drawers but the bedside table isn't clear enough for her to get back down. I'd go a bit crazy if she was miaowing all of the time.
I had a foghorn cat. I then got a kitten who is almost mute. The first cat is a lot quieter. After I've checked theres nothing wrong like run out of food etc, I dont reward the miaowing. I can tell the difference in her miaows now anyway to know when she is whining generally or when she genuinely wants something.
He may still be a bit sad or worried about living with us I guess, we have had him since January though and he seems settled. He does love to totter about following us and wailing. And needs to know where we all are(wailing).
Seniorboy generally yowls when he wants something - attention from me, the tray cleaned, attention from me, food, attention from me, a door opened that's somehow been closed...... (You're getting the pattern.) He's not that mouthy for a Siamese though, probably because I usually anticipate his needs and I'm also around the house during the day so he doesn't get much separation.
Is your lad left alone for long periods, perchance?
Some days he's on his own for the day but mostly someone is there. he has started staying out all night lately !! But is neutered. We did actually go away for a night a couple of weeks ago and the neighbour fed him. he showed his displeasure on our return by having knocked his IAMS everywhere! Maybe he's still cross about that
He probably has no reason to be unhappy in the normal way of things - I'm just used to Siamese who tend to obsess on one person and can get quite antsy if they don't get their fill of TLC from that special person. I think some other orientals can be similarly needy so if he's got any of those bloodlines in him......
You may be stuck with a mouthy blighter but I'd be tempted to try loads of extra TLC for him - from you! Does he sleep with you ?
