Cats can’t talk to let you know what’s wrong with them so they tend to vocalize their wishes (demands) instead. However, what should you do if your cat constantly cries?

The number one cause of sudden vocalization in senior cats is a disease called hyperthyroidism, which requires bloodwork to receive a proper diagnosis. Beyond emotional reasons, cats typically cry for physical problems, so make sure your cat sees a vet for a proper checkup.

By solving your cat’s physical needs, you can make your cat happier as a result. Plus you’ll get peace of mind knowing your cat isn’t crying any more and is feeling better.
