Sounds of Night
In the same way that a new parent is attuned to every sound their new child makes, pet parents are the same. It can be three in the morning when that familiar hurking noise reaches our sleep-addled minds, and we’re up, enzyme and towel in hand to clean up the cat puke. Hopefully before we step in it!
Malley has certain yowls he uses to differentiate between looking for us and announcing he took a good poop. Riley alternates between his baby-mimicking “I’m hungry!” cry, bird chirps when he’s hunting, and deep groans when he’s happy and comfortable. DiNozzo rarely vocalizes. He purrs some, but it’s just as rare. When he does deem us deserving of a vocalization, it’s a very high-pitched mew that makes us awwww.
Our kitties’ noises are very distinctive. I’d know their sounds anywhere. <3
