Cats have wide range of vocalizations to communicate with other cats, but seem to reserve “meows” primarily for talking to their people. What exactly does your cat want? Are they cat-cursing at you, praising your taste in bed linens, or just bugging you for the heck of it?
Meows are usually demands: let me OUT, let me IN, pet me, play with me, FEED me! As the cat becomes more passionate and insistent, their meows grow more strident and lower-pitched. Meow demands most frequently take place in the wee hours of the night, when owners want to sleep.
Cats normally sleep 16 hours a day, and are most active at night when mousy prey is about.
Your cat will go through the motions of mouse-patrol whether there are outside or indoors. It’s perfectly normal. In the summer I bet you appreciate them finding those pesky flies and insects that make their way into your home!
Have you ever heard a meow that sounded like they were actually saying words? A long time ago, my brother-in-law had a cat that would meow and he drew it out so long that it sounded like he was saying “help me”. Freaky, right????
