I think my cat talks in her sleep.

I adopted Biscuit about 6 months ago. She's a lovely little cat.

She's not a very vocal cat but lately in the middle of the night she starts doing this yowly thing. I jump up and start looking for her and by the time I find her she is awake and not making the noise anymore. It isn't like any noise she makes while she's awake.

My dogs do this weird "brip" sound and jog their paws while their sleeping so I KNOW they talk in their sleep.

As much as I love love love dogs, I know they're chumps. Totally goofy.

But I've had a lot of cats and they've never done anything so freaky and undignified.

Do cats talk in their sleep?

My cat snores. Screech does the mrowl thing periodically and it's just him saying his piece, asserting his control, getting out his yayas. He's never done it in his sleep. How do you know Biscuit is sleeping when she makes the noise?

Yowly? can you describe?

My cats definitely talk in their sleep - sometimes, seemingly, having nightmares, because they really scream.

Must be hard to get a reasonable night's sleep at your place!

Its like this:

YOWLYOWLYOWLYOWLYOWLYOWL

I suppose she could be awake but she doesn't make that kind of noise at all when she is awake. It doesn't seem to be connected with anything like wanting attention or being hungry.

It just seems like she's asleep.

Yep.

My vet was surprised by this though because they thought she was too young. She was spayed before I adopted her. Nobody is sure of her age but she was placed somewhere between 6 months and 1 year when I got her.

Hopefully, as she gets closer to you, and her new family, she may outgrow her need to yowl Smile

She's been here for a while though and the yowling just started!

She's a great little cat and seems very content. The yowling doesn't seem to be connected to anything that's why I think she is talking in her sleep.

She was a poor little thing. Her previous owners were busted for running a meth lab and many, many cats were rescued from the house. The vet believed that she was probably spayed by the Ferral Cat Coalition - a kind of catch and release spaying/neutering program.

I know dogs talk in their sleep and that people talk in their sleep so I was just wondering if anyone knew if other animals did.

out cats have never yowled in the sleep but do do that chattering at birds noise quietly while their paws and whiskers twitch - no prizes for guessing what that dream was about.

Was the vet sure she'd been spayed? is it a cat on heat sort of yowl? Could be a bad dream of past experiences?
