My cat keeps "yelling" at me!-Update Number 2

I know this is kind of stupid/funny to post but...I don't know what is up with her lately.  For the past couple of weeks my sleep has been terrible because my cat keeps meowing really loud in my face.  MEAH! MEAH! I'm sleeping and she's just standing next to me and MEAH!  It sometimes scares me because she is so loud.  It's always about an hour or two before my alarms goes off.  It's not because she's hungry because I keep food out for her all the time and when I go to feed her in the morning there is always food still left in her bowl.  Then by the time my alarm does go off she is sleeping next to me and if I "disturb" her by moving she yells some more.  And not just once or twice.  She'll yell with each move I make as I'm getting out of bed.  It's really getting annoying and I'm about to ban her from my bedroom. 

I think she needs a boyfriend.  ;D

Is Miss Kitty spayed?

Yes she is.  I too thought it was a weird heat cycle thing.

humm, i know my cat Cory will wake DR up around 5:30 for breakfast (we don't keep food out all day for them) but that is kind of strange. do you give her lots of attention during the day? has anything changed in the household that might be upsetting her?

I don't know how long ago you had her spayed, but I wanted to share this with you.  I had my cat spayed & a couple months later? (not sure of the time frame, cause it's been a while) she went into heat.  I called the vet & told her my cat was meowing all night long like she was in heat.  Vet says to bring her in.  She informed me that she didn't get everything when she did the surgery & would have to operate again. ???  So I took her in and she's been fine since. 

Anyway....maybe it's nothing as dramatic as that, but it's a thought.  Cats do lots of weird things, like only puke on carpet for instance. :)  I'd say if she keeps it up, take her to the vet for a check-up.

My Aunt's cat has gotten a little wild and crazy now that she has gotten older, close to 10 I think. At night She runs around the house, jumps into the empty tub, and yowls like crazy. She is an inside and outside cat, so maybe she just wants to be outside more often.

Cats can be crazy. Hope you get some sleep.

My cats have recently started forming a 'cat train' around 6 a.m.  It involves one cat (the engineer) yelling in my face and three running across my back.  ::)  I was attributing it to the earlier (summer) sunrises.

She was spayed about 3 years ago.  It was after she had had a litter of kittens.  Though I don't know if that has anything to do with anything. 

I think it might be the earlier sunrises.  I don't remember her doing this last year, but I may have just forgotten about it. 

I do feel like she is lonely sometimes and would like to get her a friend but she hasn't done well with other cats once I brought her indoors (she was a stray and used to hang out with other cats outside). 

She is just so much more vocal now.  She was always a talker and meows if I speak to her, pet her, or sometimes even just look at her.  She's just much louder about it now.

Oh yes.  However, corporal cuddling is usually applied when she gets the urge to scratch at the couch.  There are also the "belly slams" which are not actual slams but I hold her on my stomach and then fall backwards on the bed or couch.  She always yells like she is so annoyed but the purrs always give her away.    ;D

Actually, this may have something to do with it.  My vet called me on the way home from work a little while ago and said that Wilma's urine test from Monday showed a lot of crystals.  Maybe her MEAH! is really her telling me ME..ITHURTSWHENIPEE..AH!  She is going back to the vet for an xray.

i was gonna suggest that!  my fat girl kitty gets uber-talkative when she's sick...and she usually is trying to tell me just what your kitty is trying to tell you!

good luck with everything...

this post is making me miss my kitty :( i had to leave him home when i moved...

he'd always follow me around the house and talk to me.. especially when i was singing (he was probably telling me to shut up lol), and my mom's cat just walks around the house by himself with his little stuffed frog in his mouth meowing for hours

My vet said these were calcium crystals which are not "the normal" crystals.  But she didn't say things were bad, just not so good.  I hope she is not in any pain.

I'm using some homeopathics (30c) with success for the symptoms - frequent, unproductive urination, dribbling and excessive genital licking.  We're using alternating doses of Cantharis, Utica urens, and Apis Melifica.  (Note that the cantharis and apis are NOT vegetarian - one is made from beetles, the other bees.)

I actually hadn't noticed any of those symptoms.  In the past my vet thought Wilma's urine was underconcentrated.  She said it could be normal for an older cat, but because we don't know how old Wilma is, she wanted to keep and eye on it to be sure nothing was wrong.  So I've been doing urine "check ups" and this time she found all these crystals.  :(

Poor kitty  :( Finding crystals in a cats urine I know can be do to a bladder or kidney infection. Has your vet mentioned anything about that?

She said there was a tiny bit of blood that showed up on the dip stick test but that she couldn't see any blood under the microscope.  It's been like that for the past three tests now.  The first time she put her on antibiotics just to see if it would help in case it was an infection.  She is acting fine.  A little lazy, but I think that might be from the heat.  Her xrays are on monday and I'll know more than.  Hopefully there are no stone and I can fix this easily.

Do you feed your cat wet food? Cats tend to not drink enough water which can lead to dehydration and/or kidney and bladder infections.... I know one way to make sure your kitty gets more water is to feed it wet food. I also have one of those fancy pet fountains for water. The cats are so interested in the fountain they end up drinking more water. I don't know if that is the issue or not, but I hope your kitty is okay. Let us know what shows up on the x-rays.
