Is it weird if a cat never meows?

I made a topic awhile back about why cats meow towards humans. I think it's aimed at getting their attention. But, is it weird for cats to never meow towards humans? Like, is there something wrong if a cat never meows? I ask, because my cousin has an older cat, that has never meowed, or rarely does. Have you ever had a cat that never meowed towards anyone?

I don't think so. Like it's been said, some cats meow for attention, but it's something cats don't do among other cats. I don't think it's a problem if cats don't meow. It depends on the cat really.

It just means your cat isn't as social. Cats meow for attention. Maybe some cats don't meow, because they don't want the attention, or know of other ways to get your attention.

Cats don't communicate that way among themselves, they use body language for the most part. Meows are for us humans only. Some cats are more vocal than others. It's not uncommon to have a lazy sedentary cat, I had a silver short hair many years ago that barely moved from my bed, let alone meow. But I spoiled him to death. :) as I do with all my feline friends.
