Hi I just had joined this forum. I am just wondering what causes my cat to howl. See, she has Hyperthyroidism. She had that for over a year now. But she has been howling now and then for a long time. And we cant figure out why. She usually howls either while we are gone OR in the middle of the night. But we recently found out that this time her howling is sounding different and it has us worried abt her. She is our baby. And I hate not knowing what is wrong with her. It breaks my heart.

Thanks

Hi, Is your cat spayed? Female cats that aren't fixed will howl and make strange noises when they're in heat because they're calling for a mate, and it usually happens throughout the night.

If she is spayed, I don't really know of anything else that would make them howl, hopefully someone else will have some more input here. Good luck!

Some cats are just talkative. If she sounds different or strange, you might need to go to the vet to rule out a problem. Respiratory infections can change their meow or purr.

Sounds like you need her T4 levels checked. The howling could be indicitive of a change. One of my hyperthroidic cats yelled like a demon when ever he was worried while his T4 levels were abnormal. It was a terrible noise very unlike his normal calls.

Yea she s due to the vet next week sat..her last test was a month ago.. and the vet had been concerned about Lucky s kidney failure in her future. And her last results was high and the vet had told me to reduce her meds(the chewy treats). But she s still not doing well..she has her up and down days. And she ususally hides for a while sometimes all day!
I cant help it if we worry abt our baby.

I hope Lucky's kidneys are doing ok then because the treatment for high T4 can be bad if the kidneys are weak. That could be why the meds have been lowered. You should ask the vet to explain it all to you if you're worried or have questions. Don't be shy, your feelings are very important - and your paying for their service.

Tomorrow, I'm taking one of mine in for his 6th blood test this year. I still can't stand watching the blood in the syringe.

I hope all works out well for your Lucky.

Sometimes Lucky vomited white foam and food usually. She always get sick after she eat cat food and gets hungry again and eat more.
