    Question: My cat is totally deaf and began to howl and cry out, usually at 5 AM and will
    repeat this a few times during the day.
    The howling continues for about a minute. She stops if I look at her.

    What is this and how can I help her?

    As cats lose their hearing, they begin to get more vocal, presumably because they are getting less external auditory input. If your cat is totally deaf, then this crying is the only sound she can hear, and is likely doing it for attention from you. Consider yourself lucky at this point. My own cat became partially deaf at 17 years, and howled off and on all evening for the last two years of her life!
