According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), there are several reasons why cats may meow, including:
- Greeting people
- To attract attention.
- to ask for food.
- To ask to go in or out.
- to find a partner.
- Or because they are old and suffer from mental confusion.
The ASPCA states that a cat who meows a lot should be thoroughly examined by a veterinarian to ensure that the cause of the cat’s distress is not a medical condition.
It continued: “Even if your cat has a history of meowing for food, you should still have her checked by your vet. As cats age, they can develop an overactive thyroid and kidney. are prone to develop the disease of, and either may result in excessive meowing.”
