That sweet cuddly type sound that the cat makes, tend to make us believe that he is worshiping us and is totally adored by him. Well, that is part true as cats do purr when the fell happy, at rest and well contented. Some cat experts (like myself) would say that the cats purr when they are in love and uses the purr to express deeper emotions. They myth behind purring is that it has certain healing properties. Different frequencies of purrs are believed to have different healing powers.
Have you ever sat and looked at a cat or kitten when they are doing the meow (not a cat dance). It would almost look as though they have lost something or someone and are actually sending out what seems to be a distress signal to pinpoint their location or for other cats to pinpoint their location in order to zoom in. Sometimes the cat will meow to a human as though it is trying to tell you something important, such as "hey, let me out the darn house let me go climb a tree" something like that.
It rhymes with kissing, but when cats begin to hiss they are in no kissing mood. Normally cats begin to hiss when they are probably cornered and knows that their life is in danger. This is a warning sound to back the hell up or face the claws!
What more can i say, growling speaks for itself, any animal which begins to growl at you or another animal is signalling that something not pleasant will be bestowed upon you if you do not get away or leave the animal alone. Humans sometimes growl at each other, i growl when i don;t get the biggest piece of pork chops. I would look at my sweet wife and do a little growling. Then she would slap me across the head and say stop acting like our pets. geesh!
Have you ever heard the sound of cat chatter, it sounds like frustration and excitement mixed with too much coffee. The cat will chatter when it feels too much locked down and just cant get to do what it really wants. Say for example he sees a bird outside and wants to go tiger! he may begin to scratch at the winder while uttering things like *&$#@, things not suitable to type on this blog! The cat chattering is basically a sign of frustration.
Who else knows that when a female cat yowls, she is feeling quite romantic and is just not shy in letting any male cats around knows that she is willing and waiting.....did someone say kittens?
When the cat screams, it can mean too things. It is ready to jump war any one in its way immediately without any hesitation or it may have been surprised by pain. Well, for example the cat is sleeping somewhere and you accidentally stepped on his paw, he will let out a scream and probably do a little dash. After he comes out of shock he will realize you meant him no harm and you are good and chummy again.
Now what is this God darn cats problem. How come you went outside chasing after Jerry and the cant get back in and sit outside wailing at me to look at you to open the door. Ok, you can run right back in sweety, leave the mouse outside! Cats will wail when they are trying to get attention and are being ignored and decide to top up their presence a notch by bellowing that wailing sound.
We have looked at some of the more common cat sounds and when the cats meet for their weekly "lets annoy the sleep out of bob tonight convention" and they all begin to vocalize in the alley. It will take much more than the throwing of a cheesy shoe to get this feline choir to shut up. When cats prowl at nights and meet up with their buddy's and all get tipsy on a few fish heads. They will feel quite harmonious and will sing to you a mixture of songs only fitting for the deaf. When they combine all the sounds mentioned above and begin their America got talent career. It will be one journey your ears will not want to partake of. Just remember to have a pair of ear plugs ready so when these stars begin their concert, you wont be jamming to it.
