    What does it mean when a cat meows insistently to you?

    My cat kept meowing for some hours before sleep

    There are three possibilities and where the cat stands when meowing tells the tail.

    1. In the kitchen or where the food dish is located, (Translattion: Can't you guess)
    2. Near their litter box or back and forth in front of the door outside (Translation: Clean my litter-box! or let me outside I gotta go!"
    3.  Near a door inside your house or near a toy.  (Translation: I want to play in there!  or I want to play!  Play! Play! Play!)

    Hope that helps.  (smiles)

      Interesting! It´s the first time I own a cat. I used to have a dog before. My cat is different from my dog and I´m starting to learn from its demands

      I know it wants my attention, but I don´t really know what kind of attention. It´s a nice kitty and I´m starting to know it

    How long have you had your kitty and how well do you know him/her? Cats don't meow to each other--only to us. There are many different kinds of meows; my kitty "talks" to me each morning. Just greeting me and saying good morning. After a few head rubs he settles down and is perfectly content. If you have satisfied all of the typical needs such as (1) I'm hungry, (2) I need a clean litter box, then perhaps he/she is just talking to you and wants some play time. Kitty might just be bored.

    But if this is totally new behavior, it might signal a need to go to the veterinarian for a checkup. Our furry friends have very few ways of letting us know how they are feeling (and are typically quite stoic).

    I would love to help you more with this topic if you write again. (I love kitties).

      I´ve had it for two weeks and I don´t really know it. I only know that it is different from a dog I used to have. You´re right! My cat needed something. The following day I took it to the veterinary and he found something wrong with its arm.

    he is hungry, if he is in the house, he wants to pee, he is giving you a warning before he starts to scratches you

      This occurred in open country. The kitty had lots of freedom to remain outside or inside with me. There was a pile of sand that it used for that purpose.

    Glad you found the problem; was going to suggest it had a pain somewhere. If they go on and on you can know that is it. If you examine them good all over you could find the location yourself because they would let you know with a different cry once you locate the sore spot.
    Hope is is all better soon. I have a very sick one and it can be a job even knowing the problem but they are worth it.
