Thank you for reaching out to us. First of all, excessive vocalization in cats is often associated with either seeking attention or expressing pain and discomfort. What do you exactly mean by "irritates when touch"? Where did you touch? Palpate all of his limbs, spine, and hip to look out for any abnormalities. If the vocalization continues, an appointment with a vet for a differential diagnosis is required. In the clinic, your vet is likely to carry out bloodwork and urinalysis first to rule out some basic medical conditions. In other words, your vet is likely to carry out trial&error to find out whether his constant vocalization is relevant to any illness. Please consider making an appointment with a vet.

If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to come back to us!

Thank you.
