Why Does My Cat Talk So Much?

By Dr. Matheys, a veterinarian and blogger for cat insurance provider Pets Best Insurance

Hello. I’m Dr. Jane Matheys from The Cat Doctor Veterinary Hospital and Hotel in  Boise, Idaho. Today I’ll be answering some questions about cat health from questions posted on the Pets Best Insurance Facebook page.

Today, Barb asks us:  “My cat meows all the time like he’s talking to me. I pretend to ask him a question, and he meows back as if to answer. It’s adorable, but I’ve never heard a cat meow this much. Is there a reason some cats meow more than others?”

That does sound really adorable, Barb. Now, you don’t mention what breed your cat is, but definitely some of the Oriental breeds, like the Siamese, are known to be quite the talkers. Otherwise, it’s just kind of a little characteristic that is something that your kitty has. It’s just like with people. Some people are kind of reserved and quiet, and other people, well, you just can’t seem to get them to shut up. Continue to enjoy the companionship that your talkative cat gives you.

If you have any other questions, please post them down below in the comments section, or visit the Pets Best Insurance Facebook page. See you next time.

    My black male DSH cat is not behaving normally. He’s been “hiding” a lot lately in different areas and seems more aggressive with my gray female DSH. He chases her a lot and they roll around fighting–she’s hissing and snarling and lashing out at him. He won’t leave her alone. He has been neutered for about 9 months now (he was born 8/11/12). He had a urinary tract infection several weeks ago but he’s not exhibiting the same symptoms as he did then. This has only been going on a few days. He still plays a little and loves to be rubbed down and purrs when I rub him down, but he still goes off by himself. He used to be a big meower, but not so much now. I got my cats a cat condo recently and they love it, but he hasn’t gone on it for a couple days now. I just can’t figure out what’s wrong with him.
