My cat is constantly meowing. Why could she be doing this?

Believe it or not, my cat Tank does this too! He meows incessantly after he eats. We plan to have him examined at our vet’s office to find out if there is a physical cause for this.

Excessive vocalization—loud meowing or crying, is one of the most common complaints about feline behavior. Sometimes it’s accompanied by other attention-seeking behavior. Because causes for both of these behaviors can be either physical or emotional, or both, you need to do some homework on possible causes before punishing your cat for excessive crying and meowing, or other attention seeking behavior.

Observe what happens before and after this meowing. Document it for a few days and then speak to your veterinarian about it.

It’s possible that you simply have a very vocal cat, or a cat who is a bit lonely. Try offering a little extra attention to see if that curtails the behavior.
