Lord, if only I knew. Truly. My one cat, Azizi, does the top-of-his-lungs Oh Woe Is Me meow for no apparent reason. From room to room, tragically mourning something. Doesn't want pets, food, water. His brother, Phinneas, appears to have no idea what's wrong with him either. And he is LOUD! Drives me insane. He also meows because we have locked him out of our room, because we are cooking chicken, because we are eating chicken. Phin mostly only meows at 4:00 in the morning - that special hour when the cat food in the bowls apparently goes utterly and completely stale, necessitating a fresh batch.
