Cat's voice is changing - Answered by Dr. Van Lienden

Hi everyone,

Just curious if anyone has experienced this as it sounds familiar...but..

Ziglet's (my 14 year old male Siamese cat) voice has changed tone over the last few months. His 'meow' is no longer the same, it is higher and he is also vocalizing in this higher tone. It is almost like when a boy/girl goes through puberty and their voice permanently changes. Zig did get his annual checkup about 2 months ago and is in great shape and his behaviour and health haven't changed, only his voice. Do vocal chords change as we age? Is this normal or should I take him back to the vet?

Thanks everyone!
