Kittens are curious creatures with lots of energy, and they need plenty of mental and physical stimulation while awake to be happy. If a kitten is constantly crying, it may be seeking your attention or yelling for another kitten or its mother – especially if it has just been adopted.
Giving your kitten a cozy place to sleep can help comfort and soothe her, which may help with her crying. You can buy a cat bed or line a box with a soft towel or blanket. Consider lining the bed with something you’ve already used, like a sweatshirt or even a blanket. This will help your kitten get used to your smell.
Listen to your cat’s meowing
Commonly, excessive meowing is either a call for attention or to let you know she is anxious, frightened or lonely. However, in other cases it may mean they are in pain or have health concerns and may need to see a vet.
Whine & Crying
It is perfectly normal for kittens to cry during their first few nights in a new environment. A good idea is to warm a blanket to mimic the warmth they would receive from their mother to make them feel more at home. You can also use a warm blanket for puppies as well as toys to comfort them.
A yelp is a long, drawn-out meow that indicates concern, uneasiness, territorial concerns, or mating problems. If your cat is constantly howling, there may be a medical problem that warrants a visit to your veterinarian. If your kitten has not been spayed or neutered, the howling may indicate that it is looking for a mate.
