We had to go with some soft, some loud because just one makes me jump when he meows, every time. It's somewhat alarming, the intial sound very high-pitched and anxious. When I first adopted him, he had me jumping outta my shoes when he meowed, which was often, and his purr was just as loud sounding like a whole race track of cars. Finally, I realized he was just nervous settling into his new home. As he relaxed, all the sounds lessened. His meow is now seldom but still makes me jump.
Three of them you can barely hear when they meow.

This bruiser, Big Louie with legs like a linebacker, stays separated because he fights. He meows like a little girl.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/08...Louieinbox.jpg
