Most complaints about feline vocalisation are either to do with the intensity and persistence of the vocalisation, or the fact that it occurs at night when family members or neighbours are trying to sleep.
Some of the most common causes include:
- sexual (oestrus or male) behaviours
- play behaviour
- medical problems causing discomfort or pain.
- aggressive displays
- cats being active at night
- breed disposition e.g. Siamese cats can be more vocal than other cats
