Cat Wakes Up Meowing A lot

She's around 15 years old and ever since we moved sometimes she wakes up meowing like crazy. What's going on here? I thought maybe she'd stop doing it after a while but she keeps doing it and it worries me. During the five days we moved she spent the whole time meowing constantly just like she does while waking up. She also meows like that when hunting something which I'm impressed she still plays and such like a young cat at her age even with stiff joints but I'm mainly wondering about why she does the meowing while waking up.

Our Annie, age 16, does that a lot, also. She started the "night yelling" maybe five or six years ago. Usually it is related to hunting games with her favorite toy mouse, and I've read that the awful noise from female hunters is the same sound they would make to call their kittens while teaching hunting skills. But Annie "yells" at other times too, usually in the middle of the night. I've read that there can be some senility in geriatric felines that causes confusion and disorientation, and I think perhaps joint pains might cause some crying upon waking up or using the litter box. I have been giving Annie a glucosomine supplement to her food (with her vet's approval), and I do think she seems more comfortable moving around. Like your kitty, she still wants to be active and a part of all family activities. The first thing to do is a complete health check and bloodwork to see if there is a correctible problem.
