Does your cat have one sound it always makes?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I know there's been alot of discussion about talkative cats, and I know that Reeses is one (as I've read Calico's can be). But she has one noise that she always makes (constantly it seems) and depending on what she's doing at the time, it can either sound happy, tired, irritated, playful etc..

Here's a really quick video of what she does (forgive the sound quality, I had to crank the video volume so it was audible).

Yes! My lil boy Taylor makes a "squeak" sound when I stare at him. He squeaks and does the bread kneading movement with his paws. I HAVE to record some video of it to share with you guys. I think one of my digi cameras takes video. I'll try to get some video today.

Bread Kneading. *lol* My wife used a similar term the other night and I thought it was hilarious. We're laying in bed and Reeses jumped up on the bed and I could tell she was moving around but I could see her. I asked my wife "What is she doing?" and she says "Kneading Dough" I thought that was so cute

That is the only sound my Easy girl makes. She does it if she wants you to hold her, play with her, feed her. Its so precious She doesnt do it when shes irritated though. She usually hisses at her baby's when shes upset.

Having video issues as the moment so I can't see yours (my computer is the problem, not your video..) but will check it out when i get this fixed!

I can tell you that everyone who hears Az squeek is convinced he's saying his own name. It's the strangest thing... I can't do a video of it at the moment, but picture a very high pitched breathy "az" with heavy emphasis on the "A" and you can get the idea. It's hilarious!

Mine all have one consistant sound (different from one another). Snickers squeaks and it sounds so funny coming from a 20lb cat. Pebbles Mews so softly you almost feel sorry for her. Peanut on the other hand screams at the top of her lungs! It's awful! But I still love it.
Now - as for my tennant upstairs - Cielito - he has the oddest meow ever. I've only heard it a couple of times, but my daughter hears it all the time. It's loud and changes pitch and tone constantly so it sounds just like he's talking. He says "hello" and "what's going on" She said the first time she heard it she was in bed and it freaked her out so much she froze. It seriously sounds like words cause of the way he changes his pitch. It's freakish. I wish I could get it on tape, but he rarely does it with me in the room.

Isabella has this really soft meep meep / meow sound she always makes- it's prescious

Velvet has a really long drawn out dramatic meow- she always stretches out a paw and touches my arm when she does it

Jasmine is a siamese- i'll leave it at that She's the most vocal out of my bunch

Abilene has a really soft, sweet meow

Here's an MP3 of it www.handidrummed.com/reesessound.mp3

Oz has a very mournful-sounding cry that he makes when he's unhappy for some reason, like because he's hungry or J's gone to work or I'm too busy making dinner to pick him up. It's a very sad sound and it makes you want to go and cuddle him. He also has an excited "chirrup" chattering sound that he only makes when he's in hunting mode; you can tell when the Fat Squirrel of Doom is in the window, because Oz's tail will start lashing back and forth and he starts making that chattering noise. (The Fat Squirrel of Doom is a very fat, very cheeky black squirrel who likes to sit on the window ledge in our living room and waggle his tail at the cats. He knows they can't get him and is very cocky as a result. Everyone has an archnemesis; the Fat Squirrel of Doom is Oz's.)

Spike, on the other hand ... Spike makes this sort of bleating noise, like a demented goat: "Meh! Meheheh!" Sometimes he does it because he wants something (usually dinner); sometimes he does it because he's startled or he thinks you might step on his tail (because his tail and your foot are in the same room together, which for some reason in his mind equals immediate tail-stomping ... I don't know why, because to the best of my knowledge his tail has never been stepped on); sometimes I think he just does it because he's bored and likes the sound of his own freakish voice. He doesn't make any other sound, but he makes this sound count: he is very, very loud when he bleats at us.

I know of cats that do, in fact, say "meow," but my cats are not those cats.

Maverick, "the little guy" as I call him, took to "gobbling" around Thanksgiving. I kid you not!! And if you go near the treat drawer in the kitchen, he always appears and gobbles at you!

Penelope, his sister and Princess of the house, doesn't say much but she makes a weird clicking sound when she sees birds outside.

Reeses - I saw your initial post about Calicos being so talkative. That explains my mothers cat, a calico --- she talks constantly, sometimes to herself in the mirror!

I call it 'mixing puddings'

Radar is not very talkative, especially not for a Siamese cross, but he does make a couple of noises consistently. One is the 'brrrrrp' he utters when he first sees me after I come home (followed swiftly by flinging himself onto me and headbutting me madly ) and the other is a forlorn 'merrrOOOWWW' when he is stalking a fly but can't reach it

Sibohan dosn't have a shound she always makes but Duke purrs LOUDLY all of the time. Middle of the night I wake up and he's purring away like nobody's business.

Carly has this meow when she is ready to be fed that sounds like you are stepping on her. When she is playing, she has this loud "errho" sound.

Lucy has all sorts of strange noises. The cutest are when she sleeping. She does this little groan that sound like people do when they are stretching.

Tomas does the little coo meow too, along with all the other noisey kitten meows. Hungry meow is a whiney "eeeeeehh"
Sho occasionally does a soft airy "hmmm" sound but mostly uses the tags on his collar, he jangles them around when he wants attention
The outdoor kitty Max was a fully mature stray tom before we neutered him, so he has the typical loud tom meows. Most common he uses for us is sort of "prrrrREOW"
