Yo, cat people  
If there was an outdoor/feral cat who is constantly 'talking' (i.e. not that in-heat yelping cry and not really a basic meow, but a fairly regular chatty sort of meow), is it just talking to other cats, or is there something wrong with it? It doesn't sound especially alarmed or anxious, AFAIK. If it's hurt it's pretty mild, since it seems to walk okay. But this is a new behavior, so I don't know.

I can try to trap it, but that's kind of an involved process involving permits and stuff, so it's a lot of effort if there's nothing wrong.

Any thoughts?


AND OMG, I managed to get through ten minutes of Megasnake vs Gataroid with Debbie Gibson and Tiffany on Skiffy. It is hilariously bad. Like bad porn bad. Like bad porn with no porn bad.

I'm now going to go find the song Debbie Gibson wrote for it, because I'm just that old. :)

Some cats are just more talky than others. A's cat can be a bit noisy, and can occasionally get annoying at night with her meows. She is particularly talky when she wants something. From food, to asking to have her litter box cleaned, to wanting to be petted. If it's a new behavior, it is probably wanting something. Though what is anyone's guess. Could be a female in heat who hasn't got the yowling down quite right. It could be not feeling well and complaining about it. It could even have just learned the behavior from another cat and decided to try it. Though I'd say that answer is unlikely.

Megasnake vs Gataroid, Hmm, never seen that one. Doesn't sound like I'm missing much.

hm, that makes sense. Hopefully it figures out what it wants or that its not going to happen and quiets down, because boy can it be annoying. But good to know some cats just are chatty.

heh, the movie's new tonight, but no, you're not missing anything.

Sadly, I don't know on the cat.

It says so in the interview I read, but I haven't actually found it for dl. I guess it's only in the movie. :(

My roommate's cat talks pretty much constantly, regardless of whether she's asking for something or not. My impression is that some cats simply do it more than others.

................Megasnake? O_o

So I guess the good news is that the cat's probably not sick but the bad news is that it's not going to shut up any time soon. :/
