Cats have a unique set of meows, which are used to communicate different needs. One of these sounds is the chirrup, which sounds a bit like a chirp and a bit like a meow. They usually make this sound whenever there is something they want to get to, but can’t.
At our home, our favourite chirrupper is Sayang, who chirrups whenever she cannot get at a toy (usually a wand toy) or at a fly on the wall, which was what we caught her doing tonight. Although, tonight’s chirrupping is not her most bird-like yet, it still sounds like meowing –
Unfortunately, the fly is invisible to the camera, so you’ve just gotta imagine what in the world she is meowing at! Will try to get her at her most bird-like chirrupping some time!
