- 19-year-old cat wails quite loudly 2 answers
My sister has 2 cats and one is deaf.
Every time the other one wants our attention (mostly when she wants to get out or she's bored), she meows constantly. It's not loud, just a little annoying.
But the deaf cat screams, literally. It's really load and disturbing. It drives me and others CRAZY--not kidding, I get evil thoughts. (I don't think she screamed the first year.)
I looked up her behavior on Google; most sites said the best thing is to ignore them until they quit the habit. The problem is my family, they won't listen. Every time she starts screaming, somebody pets her or gives her a little push so she will shut up, but she starts again after couple minutes. The other day this went on for 5 hours.
Question: What can I do besides ignoring her to get her to quit screaming every time she wants something? is there a training trick or something?
This cat is about 2 years old, she was deaf from the beginning and we take her to a vet every month.
She started screaming about 4 or 6 months ago.
