Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Cheeto. That is good that hes eating well and drinking well. Also great that your vet said he is in good health. I do feel that as some cats get older, they can become more vocal. The reason that some feel is the cause is that they may be losing some of their hearing with age and thus they get louder due to that. Some can become more vocal if they are having a decrease in vision. This can sometimes be most apparent at night or when the light situations are dimmer. In all honesty, as long as he's otherwise doing well, this being more vocal isn't overly concerning. Some may just be more vocal as they now aren't as mobile and want to get more attention.
