Besides the various birds which chirp here around before they get caught by cats and dogs barking sometimes the whole day, which gets on my nerves, I had the charming sound of 4 cats. I point out "had" because sadly 2 of them passed away in the last 2 years. But of course they are not physically here anymore, but still in my heart.
I recognized immediately who was "talking" the biggest cat
called Kim made a soft little meow, hardly to hear like a little kitten, which didn't fit to her body at all.
The other female Pookie was grey and had, what I would call a normal meow as all street cats
The third and still getting on my nerves is little Rosie. She is a very little cat but has a loud voice. Unfortunately when she was out and comes in she announces her arrival with loud meows, even when it is 3 am. She doesn't care if it is day or night, she just has to tell us that she is back ! And I never had asked her to do so !
The worst is Arthur 18 years old but his voice hasn't changed. He still sings operas
but not like a Pavarotti, but rather like I would imagine a cat in a Hitchcock movie, or one who on a graveyard who scares people to dead. He still surprises us and I don't talk aboutthe reaction of our guests. He does this mostly when he wants to eat and as he eats a lot he makes a lot of noise too.
What I also know is of course the moo of a cow, and other farm animals. When we first moved here I hated a rooster who crowed at 4 am and woke up the whole area. One day it stopped so I suppose somebody had complained or he had landed in a cooking pot.
Camels make strange sounds with their tongue, difficult to describe and you better step back if you don't want to get a shower.
There is also the snake whistle or the quack quack of a frog.
The friend's parrot who asked us "are you going to bed ?" when we left doesn't sound like a bird but rather like a human. When he doesn't speak he screams, not a very nice noise.
But the best sound for me I have learned on Internet thanks to YouTube ! An Australian friend talked about a bird called Kookaburrra
who laughed every morning very early in her garden and woke her up ! I had never seen or heard such a bird and now I want one ! waking up with a laughing bird can only bring a lucky day !
