Louis Catorze has a new sound. He already has an impressive catalogue of sounds in addition to his default scream – I have started to call it “default” rather than “normal” for obvious reasons – and we thought he was too old to be coming up with new ones. As ever, he has done something other than what was expected.
I have only heard this sound once, and it came completely by surprise so I was unable to capture it on audio. The best way of describing it is, erm … a moo.
I know. I KNOW.
The moo came at the end of a long succession of screams, delivered to try and bully Cat Daddy into cuddling him, but Cat Daddy was busy doing other things. The more he ignored, the more Catorze persisted until, eventually, he resorted to the moo, which stopped us all in our tracks.
Cat Daddy: “What kind of sound was THAT?”
Catorze: “…” (Yes, the noise even surprised him.)
The default screaming then resumed.
I know that the chances of even hearing the moo again, let alone collecting evidence, are more remote than the dark side of Pluto. But maybe one day I will be lucky, no doubt when I am trying to record something else and really don’t want his interference at all.
