Are Siberian cats vocal?
Siberians are not necessarily the most vocal breed, especially compared to some other types of cats. They are very social though, and they love to keep their owner up-to-date on their mischiefs. They will often communicate with gentle meowing, chirping and chortling sounds that are adorable and will make your heart melt. They also purr a whole lot. The amount of vocalization varies from cat to cat. Some are more silent and introverted, and some just like to chat!
Apart from general conversation making, Siberian cats will meow if they are hungry, thirsty, bored or if their bathroom isn’t clean. A Siberian will definitely be more vocal if you haven’t been home all day. They just want to know how your day has been!
Siberian cats will also be more vocal if they are uncomfortable or in pain. Increased vocalization could also be a sign of anxiety in your cat. If you have just relocated or changed the furniture in your house, or there is a new family member or a pet, the Siberian might express their discomfort by meowing. They are just adjusting to the change. If there is a new cat in the house, it will take time for the two of them to get to know each other and established hierarchy, so you may have both cats meowing increasingly for a few days until things settle down.
Also, Siberians are a slow-maturing breed. They take an average of five years to reach full maturity. Before that, they are kittens in their heart, and kittens are often more vocal than adults.
In general, you should not be overly concerned with this breed’s vocal tendencies. They are, for the most part, not too vocal and you will definitely come to like their chirping and purring so much you’ll miss it when they are not around!
