Yelling Kitten

My kitten, Rocky, is a male 3 month old rescue. We have had him for 2 months now. He loves to run around and meow at nothing. My other cat, Roxy, is female. She loves to keep to herself and hide but didn't do so until we got Rocky. What should I do?

I am not sure what your problem is here. All cats are different and display different behaviors. Some are quiet and some are more vocal than others.

Cats will often use their meow just to get our attention most of the time, so it could be that your cat is just doing that.

In a few months time it will be time for your male cat to be neutered. this will help to calm him down and be more settled. At the moment he is full of the joys of spring and being a kitten.

i have a page about cat sounds which you may find of interest here


Also if you are at all worried about your kitten or think that there could be something wrong (only a owner can tell this sometimes) then your best option is of course to take him to the vets to be checked over.

best wishes kate

I think he's just happy. Cats also have sensitive hearing so he might be reacting to bugs or other things in the walls. My 6 year old neutered male also likes to run around screaming. He's just showing where he is in his territory, much like a dog running around barking, I'll bet your kitten is doing the same.
