1. Please help. I adopted a cat nine days ago. It meows at least 18 hours a day including throughout the night. It has access to all the bedrooms. He was a stray someone adopted him and then brought him back a week later. Now I think I know why. I don’t go to bed till 4 o’clock in the morning and he starts going up and down the hallway at 5 AM. I told the shelter on the application I needed a companion and a emotional support animal. I I am bipolar and the two things that can trigger a mania is lack of sleep and stress. I called the vet and they said this is most likely the cats personality. Is there anything you can suggest that I can do he has run of the house he has plenty of toys and he doesn’t even play with toys, his food is on a timer twice a day.I have had cats in the past and talk to cat owners and they said they have never heard of a cat doing this. Please help me.I’ve got conflicting stories on his age one said one year old the other said 4 to 5 years old

    1. Your cat is most likely uncomfortable in his new surroundings. He could be stressed out or just need some attention.
      For the best advice, if this behavior is truly upsetting, speak with your veterinarian.

  2. My desexed female cat that I adopted from a shelter won’t stop meowing. It’s driving me crazy. She is eating drinking using her litter tray. I even took her outside on a lead as she is an inside cat and I have no fence but she wasn’t interested. Her constant meowing is me being on the verge of taking her back to the shelter.

    1. Cats meow a lot when they want attention. Sometimes, they may meow to indicate something is wrong. Watch out for any abnormal behavior.
      Visit a vet if this persists for a long time.

  3. My cat meows pretty much all night. I think he has some pretty severe anxiety issues but nothing seems to help. I’ve tried structured playtime before bed, calming treats, calming collars, playing “cat tv” videos. He doesn’t really enjoy anything in life. It’s so frustrating and sad.

    1. I’m sorry to hear about the difficulties you’re experiencing with your cat’s behavior. It can be very frustrating and distressing when a pet exhibits behavior that is concerning or disruptive.

      There are several things you can try to help your cat feel more calm and more secure, and it’s worth trying a variety of approaches to see what works best for your individual cat. Here are a few suggestions:

      Make sure your cat is getting enough physical and mental stimulation during the day. Cats are natural hunters and need opportunities to engage in activities that mimic their natural behaviors. Providing structured playtime with toys that encourage your cat to hunt, chase, and pounce can help to burn off excess energy and reduce anxiety.

      Provide a safe and comfortable environment for your cat. Make sure your cat has plenty of hiding spots, perches, and other places to retreat to if they feel threatened or overwhelmed.

      Try using pheromone products, such as Feliway, which can help to reduce anxiety and improve your cat’s overall well-being.

      Consult with a veterinarian or a feline behavior specialist. They may be able to suggest additional strategies or medications that can help to manage your cat’s anxiety.

      It may also be helpful to keep a journal of your cat’s behavior and any changes you make to their environment or routine, as this can help you identify patterns and triggers that may be contributing to their anxiety.

      I hope these suggestions are helpful, and I hope you are able to find a solution that works for you and your cat.
