    I didn't want to intrude on The Cat Coach thread but wanted to share something with you. I once had a cat with some of the same behaviors as your bengal and it turned out she was having seizures. Apparently this had been happening for a long time before I actually witnessed a seizure but her "not quite right" eyes wide staring and yowling were, according to my vet, due in part to her being disoriented from the seizures and feeling insecure because she didn't know what was happening to her & when it would happen again. Also, if your cat is middle aged, ask about the possibility of hyperthyroidism.

    Hes a year old, and hes always yowled at the wall since we have had him and he does it very often, he doesnt get the weird eyes like he does when he just sits and looks at you, but he does have a certain almost scared look to him, once he sees you then he almost looks relieved. He also only will do it when no one is around so i kind of doubut its seizures or else he would do it when hes in the same room as up but you never know. After reading marilyns response i actually decided to google and i came across someone who also had a similar situation but the cat was much older. If i remember correctly the cat had cognitive issues and arthritis which was causing the cat stress. Im thinking that its possible he has cognitive issues which could have resulted from the "sickness" he has had at a kitten, the breeder didnt go into detail but just said they were very sick and didnt even think they would make it. Im going make an appointment at another vet this time around and hope i can find someone who seems to care about looking into things more.
