    Cat Behavior
    PetLover12 posted:
    I was just wondering why my BabyBoy(Cat) goes in the bedroom and yowls(Meows loudly)? He doesn't do this long,but I was just curious and I wanted to be sure that this behavior was normal.(He's 17 yrs. old and neutered,and mainly an indoor cat only). He likes to go out and roam with supervision of course.
    Drew Weigner, DVM, ABVP responded:
    If he's always done this, it's probably just him. If it's a new behavior, it's something you should check out. Some older cats do have more difficulty defecating and your veterinarian should be able to help with this, depending on the cause.
