My cat is making a clicking noise when he opens his mouth. What's wrong?


Answer by  PaintedRoadkill (504)

Your cat's jaw may be fractured or broken. The clicking noise is abnormal and suggests bone clicking together. I suggest taking him to a vet.

Look for anything that can excite him, such as a toy or a squirrel outside the window. Sometimes cats make clicking sounds known as "chattering" when they see a prey. This is normal behavior under this context. If there is nothing resembling a prey and the cat seems to be in pain then you should check with a veterinarian.

Very seldom, some cats do make clicks to "talk" If it happens every time, I would look for something caught in the top of the mouth.
