If you have a cat, you’ve probably heard it meow for no apparent reason int he middle of the night. While it’s easy to think your cat is trying to torture you through a regiment of sleep deprivation, there are actually less malicious reasons why your cat might be meowing late at night.
One reason is that they want your attention so they can play or get something to eat. Another reason might be because they’re distressed and want your attention so they can play or get something to eat. Still another reason might be because they want to torture you and they want to play and get something to eat.
