For the past three days there has been a cat lurking in gangway that separates our house from the apartment building next door. We’ve never seen it before. I don’t know if the cat belongs to someone in the building, but I do know that it has been ‘meowling’ loudly almost non-stop, all night & day. I’m inclined to think its a stray, as it appears a bit bedraggled and it is very skittish if I try and approach it. I’m not exactly a cat person, but I’m concerned that it might be dying of thirst or hunger or has some other pain and that is why it is making so much noise.
So is this just something that some cats do, or is it an indication that something is wrong with the cat?
