When body language fails to get the attention of humans, cats will turn to meowing to let their discomfort/distress known to us. And once they figure out that we respond to their meows better than we respond to their body language, watch out! They will use it like ammunition to get what they want! They will meow to make us open the door, to remind us that it’s time to feed them, to simply get some heavy petting, to get your undivided attention, to tell us something is wrong with them, to draw attention to health problems, etc. Let us examine the reasons why your cat will meow like his/her sole aim in life is to drive you insane.
