Think your cat is trying to tell you something? You're right. According to the ASPCA, adult cats vocalize when they want a human to respond to them. Meowing is their way of asking for what they want or need.
Whether it's to be let outside or in; to be fed; played with; helped when they are stuck someplace or just looking for your attention, cats know how to communicate with their human families. They don’t “mince words” so to speak; they meow because they have something to say. Be sure to listen to them.
