16 year old Siamese males making very loud sounds

I have 3 elderly male Siamese cats (one is 16 and two are 15 years of age). They have all begun to make very loud bellowing noises at times. Is this natural behavior?

Maybe going deaf NEW

Sometimes when cats get old and begin to lose hearing they start yowling to themselves because they can't hear. They get louder and more belligerent because they are upset or they are testing their own hearing. Have the ears checked if this is a new behavior. If it's not new... then it's just the siamese personality

Loud sounds . . . gone now, sadly. NEW

I would give anything to be able to hear that bellowing again, but my sweet darling passed this year at the age of 18 years. I will never forget him.

Bellowing / Screaming or whatever! NEW
by: Karen

My Choc point is now 11 years old. Over the past few months he's started making this loud bellowing noise all through the night. He's always been loud but this is ridiculous. He's wakening the kids up frequently through the night. He's driving me insane! We have a little female cat, same age, they've grown up together and usually sleep together in their nice fat, fluffy bed. He does love to sleep beside my partner and I too but we can't be bothered with his claws and snoring. He also tends to walk about the pillows and stand on our heads. I'm just wondering if this crazy loud noise is a separation anxiety problem or if he just loves being loud and annoying. He's such a lovely, good natured boy though. I just wish he'd shut up lol. I wish you could hear the noise!

weird nioses
by: Anonymous

I have a 15 yr. old male siamese cat and one night he made a wicked niose. I stopped to see what he was up too. I had never heard him sound like that before.I thought about running in my room and getting out the holy water.From reading other blogs, I guess this is normal.

Siamese Growling
by: Kay

I too have a senior male siamese who quite often when he comes in from outside, walks up the hall growling and won't stop, I have tried talking him out of it (ha), overtalking him (no luck). It's the same when I put something in his food bowl that he doesn't want. I tell him that's it or go without, and he immediately starts, it's quite funny as you can see he's seriously put out, but when he's finished complaining and knows that I won't put anything else down (eg prawns) he gives in and does eat it (with bad grace). He only started this trait about 18 months ago, up till then it was just the ordinary siamese meow.
