Hi there - I am not sure whether I should be concerned or not but our 2 year old brown spotted bengal has lost his voice, his usual high pitch chatty self has become horsey and sometimes you can't actually hear anything come out of his mouth although he is trying to talk.

This has happened since we introduced our new snow spotted bengal (3 mths old) a week ago, but only noticeable for the last couple of days??

Should be concerned...what can cause this???

This happened to one of mine last month - all of a sudden all she could do was the occasional high pitched squeak. There was no sign of her being ill or in any discomfort and she was eating normally. This week she's suddenly returned to normal.

I'd also be interested if anyone has any ideas why it happens.

Our 'Kinky' is also eating fine and going to the toilet ok...but he is a little more sleepy than usual but this MAY be from all the playing with the new kitten.

I thought it would make sense in-case anyone else has the same issue to tell you the results.

We took 'Kinky' to the vet yesterday early evening and they prescribed something for worms and fur balls. The vet suspects that our 2 year old bengal is actually having a reaction towards the new kitten and this caused him to lose his voice but just in-case to cover all aspects he wanted to make sure that Kinky didn't have worms (un-likely as he is a house cat) but suppose again the kitten could have bought something in with him??????? and fur balls can cause a different sounding voice???

Anyway our Kinky is already improving...his high pitched voice will be back in no time :D

a couple weeks ago forest (our DSH) had a froggy meow so we took him to the vet and she couldnt find anything wrong with him as far as she could tell, thankfully no worms. so she said its probably a hair ball and to switch to hair ball prevention food and a couple days later we found a few hair balls in a row and his meow was back to normal. hope that kinda helps :)

The exact same thing happened when we brought a new bengal kitten into our house. Our 3 year old bengal lost her (usually very chatty voice). She became very withdrawn and growly and we thought it was because she was threatened by the new kitten.

We took her to the vets and it turned out that she had got tonsillitis. The vet gave her an injection (of antibiotics I assume) and she was a lot better within three days or so.

Perhaps the 'threat' of a new kitten reduces the cats immune system and that is why they get ill? imho

I find it very interesting that this has happened to other cats too. Thanks for posting this thread.

My 2 year old silver spot, Ruby, has lost her voice today, she is happy, eating well, running around like mad but it's like the volume has been turned down
If nothing changes by the weekend I'll take her to the vets,
thanks for posting this thread x

Anytime, and I mean ANYTIME, your cat's behavior changes suddenly, a trip to the vet is required if things have not improved in 24 hours! You don't waste any time. Your kitty can't tell you what is wrong and you don't know if it is something serious and you do not want to take any chances.
