Since cats can’t talk (or won’t talk), you have to guess what their mood might be. Cats are like any living creature and can suffer a range of emotions that may include depression. So how can you tell if your cat is depressed?

In most cases, cats don’t get depressed emotionally, but may be suffering from some physical condition that causes them to act as if they’re emotionally depressed. One key sign to look for is any cat that suddenly changes its behavior and seems quieter than usual, which might mean it’s plotting against you.
