Tara’s Crazy Howling

Time for another crazy cat story.

So our little cat, Tara, has this fuzzy red/white ball toy that she loves. She likes to fling it around through the air and go chasing after it. She has even become slightly dog-like and will play fetch to some degree, depending on how lazy she is about bringing it all the way back to your feet.

There’s one big problem, though. When she picks this toy up in her mouth and wanders around, if there is no-one to take it from her, she will emit this incredible howl to get attention… while it’s still in her mouth. She’s a very vocal cat, anyway, so that’s not entirely surprising. It’s just a horrendous noise, is all, and one you can hear from anywhere else in the house.

I mean, she’s super cute… but there’s a reason why we tend to hide the toy at night. Those 3 am howls don’t help the sleeping, much.

    Oh wow, I remember that during the stream.

    My cat likes to make noises at ungodly hours of the day, too.

    Haha, I enjoyed this. She is so cute! I’m a major cat-lover, not gonna lie.

    I had a cat a couple years back that loved to play fetch with the plastic ring you pull off the cap of a milk carton to open it. He was seriously obsessed with those things. Whenever I opened a new carton of milk, he could hear the subtle noise it made no matter where he was lounging around the house. He came dashing into the kitchen before I even finished taking off the plastic thingy. He’d look up at me and beg for me to throw it for him, and after I did, he fetched it and brought it back to me more consistently than most dogs I’ve seen. Man, I miss that cat. I’m gonna go cry now.
