If your cat is meowing a lot all of a sudden, don’t shush him, pay attention. Cats meow as a form of communication, and excessive meowing can be linked to medical problems, like dementia, hyperthyroidism, and high blood pressure. So if your cat is more vocal than normal, take him to the vet.
Also, don’t try to stop your cat from clawing – just give him something safe to sink his claws into. Because scratching and clawing are how cats relieve anxiety and release pent up energy. So provide scratching posts to help your cat’s mental health.
