I'm reaady to lose my mind, my mama cat meows non-stop
(grants pass or)
My mother cat who never meowed before she had kittens will not stop meowing, she has water, litter and food, she even expects 4 cans of food a day. There is food in the bowl, her kittens are 6 weeks old
Please help or I am going to have to get rid of her, this is too much for me I am disabled and am not to get stressed which is why I got her in the first place.

I now a constantly meowing cat can become very wearing very quickly. However there is no way I know of that can stop them quickly.
Often meowing is an attention seeking thing and is usally a learned behavior over time, i.e I meow then I get what I want.
However in this case it could be caused by either anxiety for her kittens or is her way of communicating with them. It is impossible to know.
If I were you I would take her to the vets first to see if she is healthy and that the meowing isn't caused because of ill health and second to see if the vet thinks that it may be anxiety and if there is something he can give her to help calm her down during these first weeks of being a mum.
I know it's hard but don't get angry with your cat, there is always a reason for their behaviours, we just have to figure out how best to handle them.
