Moaning 16 yr. old cat
Katie, our 16 yr. old spayed female cat, has developed this "habit" of moaning right when dh and I get into bed! She seems fine all evening, usually sleeping, but as soon as we get in bed and turn out the lights we can hear her in the living room moaning. It is not a meow but a mournful moan or howl. I usually get up and turn on the light, go over to her in the living room and pet her and talk to her and she just sits there. This happens almost every night! Her health seems good except for the usual progression of kidney problems, meaning drinking more and urinating more. She has had her teeth cleaned and some pulled, her appetite is good. She is even playful at times. Why do you think she does this?
