Seven Cat Sounds Mean

From meowing and purring to hissing, grunting and moaning-cats emit a variety of sounds. Although they sometimes sound like gibberish to human ears, cat voices communicate the feelings and needs of our pets-when we can hear. Here are some of the sounds that cat among the most common:

1. Meow – Kittens meow to attract their mother’s attention, just like our pets meow to grab our ears. Cats consider us their eternal parents and meowing can signal that Kitty wants something from you, be it food, be it her litter cleaned or your affection.

It is worth noting that not all meows are the same, and cats use this vocalization to express a range of emotions. A short, quick meow often means that your cat is alone or wants food, while a prolonged, whining can be a sign of worry, irritation or some other objection. Listening to your pet, you should be able to decipher what his unique palette of meows means. However, be careful that incessant meowing can be a sign of illness, and you should consider taking your pet to the vet if it does not stop.
Purring – Cats purr when they are satisfied, but they also create that calming vibration when they feel browbeat or scared. Take a look at Kitty’s body language to be sure of what that soft and hoarse sound means.

Chirrup – A cheerful sound, a trill, a chirrup is the way your cats greet each other to his human lover. It is a restrained sound when your pet feels excited and happy, or may be way to get your attention.

Chatter-The stuttering sound is usually a cat’s response to seeing something that it can’t reach, like a bird outside the window. It is believed that it shows excitement or frustration in front of the object out of reach.

Growling – this low and growling sound is a warning to stay away. If your cat is scared, angry or territorial, she will grunt and you should give her the space she needs.

Whistling-Whistling is your cat’s response to fear and shows that she is ready to action if necessary. Often accompanied by a bulging back, a swollen tail and flattened ears, a hiss may indicate that your pet wants to be left alone.

Caterwaul – this shrill sound is unique to female cats in the heat. It is a screaming appeal to let other cats know that she is available for mating.
