Odd question I know, but I have a Female 4 year old Siamese that has been going through some “Menopausal-type” issues as of late. We recently brought our Male siamese back from the vet and the female went ballistic. Hissing, being obtuse and angry towards him. She had been alienating herself in the basement which subsided after a few days. Now she hangs out in the windows and watches the bird feeders as usual. The two are staying away from each other, and she will give him the occasional HISSS when she walks by him. It’s mildly funny now because she won’t even break stride, she will saunter past him looking at me and abruptly turn her head to him…HISSS… turn back and continue walking - without breaking stride.
Anyway, my wife and I have noticed that her vocalizations have been changing. She has a different meow now, more high pitch yet gutteral. Almost like she doesn’t have enough breath to get out the full on siamese MEEEOOOWWWWW!!!
We have suspected her of having an issue with athsma [she has a vet appointment Sept 4] as she snores quite loud and when resting we hear a distinct wheeze which subsides over approx 5 minutes.
But this change in meow has us concerned. Has anyone out there experienced this with their cats? What gives, I mean she doesn’t smoke or take drugs . Neither do we for that matter.
What’s up doc?
