What can you do about a cat losing his meow?
Some cats are more verbal than others. I have a tabby cat Molly,
and she's a sweet cat. She meows very little but will "chatter" and
I take it as trying to talk to me. It's best to take your cat to
the vets and be sure your pet is in good health. It's better to be
safe than sorry.
my cat lost his meow when he discovered we though it was the
cutest thing and used to 'aaaaawwwwww' him every time he did it, he
got to the point he was making more of an almost silent 'mmrrrr'
without moving his mouth much if at all, we still aawwd him thou
cos it really was so darn cute!
he also discovered we loved it when he meowed and yawned, again
we just went aaawww crazy, so he developed the taste for that
too(it was lovely though, it creates this weird cute squeak) and he
did that all the time after that.
you could always try the role reversal, ie aaawwwww him when he
does meow, make him think you love it and find it cute,
you could try a reward system every time he meows you give him a
treat, or clicker training,
cats are very very intelligent and learn so quickly if its his
choice due to what he thinks you want you can reverse it with a
if he likes it like that im not sure hell be so quick to change,
they don't like to please us as much as they like to please
and of course make sure that theres nothing wrong with him so
take him to the vet to check it out too.
Some cat's don't like to talk, nothing is really wrong until he
CAN'T purr, like when he tries, it doesn't work. My cat stopped
talking, and I took her to the vet and he told me what I just told
you. Another one of my cats just squeaks. It's almost like a
croak... ;) And my other cat talks constantly, she never shuts up.
So, your cat it fine; it just doesn't have anything to say.
