Hi Josie, Is it normal for a cat to stand at his bowl and meow out loud? He does it all the time now, even when the bowl is fresh. He only does it before he has a drink, not during or after. He always walks around meowing loudly too until I call for him.

That is a hard question to answer. Only because it could be due to several things. Of course we hope it is nothing medicinal that makes him hurting when he needs fluids/is dehydrated.
It could also be an association related thing where he has experienced something connected to water. I don’t know of his background but if he ever was a stray cat, it could be a natural instinct as they are very vulnerable when they eat and drink.
As long as he is fine otherwise I wouldn’t be worried, though 😊
