Hi Bunny
Your cat is probably on heat (if she isn't spayed, of course). Cats start to come into season at about 6 months old during the summer months and will come on and off heat for a few months. They are very verbal and roll around a lot, trying to elicit attention from other cats and owners. I suggest you have her sterilised as soon as possible or you will have hundreds of kittens soon. If she is already spayed then she may just be a very verbal cat, which is normal up to a point. However it may be a good idea to have he checked by the vet in case she is in pain or discomfort. Excessive calling can also be a sign of over-attachment or separation anxiety, but this is uncommon in cats.
