My cats are all annoying!

I have three... all rescues... and all mostly indoor... but they all meow whenever I walk into a room, whenever I open tuna, whenever I move my hands near them.... they are loud and obnoxious.... anyone elses cats this way?

Oh my cat is sooooo that way. He even meows when he thinks he's by himself. He meows at sunlight, "merps" when he wakes up, meows for food, meows for attention, "wails" when I leave, meows when I come home, chirps to make sure I see him, wanders around meowing if he "loses" me.....some days I could kill him. And he doesn't even really have a cute meow, it's basically very similar to that really obnoxious voice Siamese cats generally have (I think he is possibly part Siamese, he has the bone structure and it would explain why he talks so much since Siamese are known for being talkers).

But I love him and think it's generally cute (especially when he's meowing to himself), I just think of it like he's happy and trying to talk back to me (since I talk to him all the time).
Thankfully I've trained him that meowing while I'm sleeping is not ok (he used to sit on my bed, get in my face, and meow to try to wake me up and I'd chuck him off my bed, now he sits on my back, stares into my face over my shoulder and loudly purrs which is much more acceptable, and way more cute).

But yeah, meowing is annoying stuff. I found that Booth meows less when he's tired after I've played with him (and as a result given him lots of the kind of attention he craves). Often he meows because he wants attention so I wait until he's quiet (so I don't reward the meowing) and then I pay lots of attention to him. When he does his "where are you??!" meow I call his name and ask him what he's doing. Then he usually comes running and curls up near me (quietly).
I've also found that he really only meows significantly at certain times of the day. He's talkative all the time but he's the most obnoxiously talkative at about 8-10pm and I just tell myself that that's his personality and that at least he doesn't meow that much all the time! Haha

But yeah, I totally hear you with the meowing thing. Some days I could just murder him, I couldn't imagine having 3 Booths! O.o

And yes, I do think they are cute... I just get irritated when cooking or when sitting on the couch and our hand-obsessed cat will not let me move with out noticing my hand movements by giving me a noise :)

I have a part Siamese cat, Henry, and he talks more than most of my family. He talks to me when I wake up in the morning, when I go to bed, when I lock him out of my room, when I go into the kitchen, when I get up in the middle of the night, whenever. Me and him will have conversations all the time =D I actually don't mind it, I think its cute.

I also have Snickers, a Domestic Shorthair. She likes to "yell" at me, say I forget to feed them before school or pet her or whatever. There's just a reprimanding tone in her meow that makes me cringe lol. And when the 2 of them play, they make more noise than a herd of elephants stampeding. I love how vocal they are lol.

I wish my cat was like that, I swear my cat is mute!
She only meows when she's super pissed off :p

LOL....lets trade for a bit... you can have my three with very distinct meows (one sounds like she is being squished) and I could have some quiet time :)

LOL! I don't have any inside (hubby is allergic) but my daughter's barn cat is a serious pain in my butt. I trip over him at least once daily doing chores, he likes to use the indoor as a litter box and normally does so when I'm riding, his favorite thing to do is to walk the rafters and bail onto birds in flight - my horses will all handle it well if it ever literally rains cats & dogs.

I have a snow bengal, and when he's inside all he does is meows. He meows a lot outside too. Indoors "Meow Meow Meow meow meow" It's never ending. He stays outdoors most of the time until it turns dark.

Cats are funny for sure.... I have one that goes into the cupboards if I leave them open.... she is also a counter surfer, which really chaps my hide, especially if she gets my bacon :)
