my siamese is 20 years old...and driving me and my wife nuts....

Besides the urination all over the house , wherever he feels like going ( ive bought stock in pee pee pads , thats how much we use ) , he has always been vocal , but recently , he goes into these tirades of wailing. It cant even be considered meowing, its much more depressing. He's almost screaming, and will continue to do so for about 10 times in a row and then it stops. Any thoughts ?

Your cat NEW

Animals,cats ESP are prone to dementia and ESP kidney problems.I am sorry to read about all both you and your wife are going through and ESP your Siamese.Perhaps a vet trip and if you have a screened in porch or area you can place your Siamese,safely,able to see people yet urinate freely or on a area which you and your wife do not care so much about.Think of your animal as you would an elderly,love your animal through all of your lives because it loves you unconditionally.

Driving us nuts. NEW
by: Beatrice

HI there,

I note that your cat is 20 years old, this is old by any standards. Is he in pain,? that would account for the wailing, has he gone off his food for instance?, does he want to get out after a tom cat outside,? whom he feels might be threatening his territory, these are the usual reasons why males will wail ( a) ill and (b) want to get out and patrol his territory and can't.

If this wailing has only started recently, then I suspect he might be in pain, would you consider taking him to the vet ? as there might be no obvious symptoms, but there may be something going on physiologically at a deeper level which is causing pain and undue distress and you won't know this except by taking him to the vet and at 20 years of age, well the old body is not what it used to be.

Hope this helps.
