Many behavorialists say it’s the ultimate gesture of love while other people speculate that it could mean your cat is hungry.  So if you see this happen you might want to give your cat a hug and a treat!  If however your cat has been meowing consistently with sound but all of a sudden it seems these silent meows are all your cat is now offering it might be time to consult a vet.

Best of luck!
