Does the Meowing EVER stop...?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
LOL

I love when he talks, but lately he doesn't stop. It's not easy to explain, as I have had cats before but they have never had this much to say...or in this way...

Jackson's meows will last 7-15 seconds at times...And some of the time they're the sound of his normal meows and other times they're deep and unhappy...but cute. (He also does this when he doesn't want to be picked up)

He has food in his bowl, He has water, has just had an awesome work-out session...He just walks around (or runs) meowing...OVER AND OVER AND OVER again...I don't mind it too much, he doesn't do it at nite, generally during the day...

TRUST ME Jackson gets a TONE of attention, and is EXTREMLY spoiled...

Any suggestions and/or comments?

Thanks....

My Jazz is extremely vocal too. It's hard to explain to people unless they live with him. He, too, has the long 10 second meow that sounds very pathetic. Some people think it sounds intimidating or scarey but I know it's just a normal Jazz meow. He's demanding but not scarey. I think some cats are just more verbal than others. Jazz is now 11 months old and he's not any quieter. How old is you kitty?

I can see how tiring that could get. My cat is pretty quiet except when she is lost she calls to me, or when she is excited she chirps and coos quite loudly... far louder than a usual purr.

My mother had a very chatty whiney cat. and it was the just the cats personality. I must admit I prefer quieter catties.

If everything else is normal...eating, peeing, pooping, playing, grooming, then I'd say you just have a talkative kitty. I have 1 quiet one and 1 fairly talkative one. I love them both, but sometimes quiet is nice!!

Yeah, Ripley's a talker and can be VERY demanding. If she's not getting exactly what she wants at that precise moment, she'll do the long whiny pitiful meow...it makes her sound so crabby! I do love chatty kitties, though. It makes them that much more expressive!

When I got jackson from the shelter they said he was three. But when I took him to the vet he said he is more likely around 10-12months. I love when he talks, I just wasen't sure how "Normal" this is...

Thanks everyone!!!

Here's Jazz on one of his typical demanding vocal days. I was vacuuming and just wouldn't stop trying to get my attention. I turned it off to see what the heck he wanted but I can't say I ever figured it out. He does this often....

Oh My, Jazz is so cute. That is EXACTLY what Jackson sounds like, but I must say....He talks alot more.

Usually in the morning I will be getting ready for school and my boyfriend feeds him, for that 30-40minute he doesn't stop. He always has so much to say!

Thank-you so much for the video, I really enjoyed it!!!! My boyfriend told me I can do the same thing, so I will try to catch Jackson on a vocal day, Its really quite funny.

Thanks again,

Jayme and Jackson

I'd love to see it! Jazz is more demanding than he is talkative I guess. Did you see him reach up and smack the camera at the end? He was getting really aggrivated with me. Silly boy!

LuckyGirl is really talkative too. I think it's cause she was used to begging when she was wild and living on a hotel resort. It only bothers me when she runs between my legs and trips me 9 times on my way to the bathroom 1st thing in the morning...then 9 more times on my way to the kitchen to feed her. And the whole time she's constantly meowing. Then after she eats a little she just follows me around meowing...like she wants to have a conversation. So I ask her ?'s and she meows back, I tell people that I can really understand her answers... . I think she just likes the interaction...

I also have a talker. JoJo talks a lot. And they're not the same meow, either. She does the sweet 'girly' mew [she's 4 years old and now 15 pounds, nearly twice Jack's size] and also does the caterwauling 'crazy kitty' mroooowwww.

Jack, on the other hand, will only do a 'mrrrw' when he's REALLY hungry [or just thinks he is]. He's normally the 'strong, silent' type. Which is fine iwht me. JoJo more than makes up for his silence...

JoJo will sit next to my office chair and meow... meow... meow... although right now she's grooming under the side table... all three of us just came back from 'you-know-where' ... where they got a checkup, microchipped, and Jack finally got his rabies booster. JoJo already had hers before. She's being rather quiet... brooding about how she can exact her revenge for having the vet put her new harness on her... same for Jack.

Back to packing... ugh...

You know how men tell us women we talk too much and we go on and on, well I guess you got to just deal with a very verbal cat that does not shut up. If men have to put up with us I guess we have to put up with the talkative kitties.

Jazz sounds a lot like Penelope! In fact, when I was playing that video, I had trouble distinguishing between my girl and your kitty (P. meows at me incessantly when I'm at the computer). Penelope wants my attention 24/7 and, I have to say, there are times where she drives me CRAZY! lol

Although Petunia is the least vocal of the two. Im sure today when I get home from work Barkley will start fussing as soon as I walk through the door, much like he does everyday. Then once I have fed them and Im winding down for the evening, Petunia will come over to me and sit down by my feet and "talk" to me, as though she is telling me all about Barkley's antics while Ive been gone. It can be a nuisance at times when Ive got a headache or something but for the most part I enjoy it when my children wish to conversate with me!
