Default Yowling!

It must have been around 4AM, I was awakened by Buffy yowling her head
off in the living room.

Chances are she spotted a raccoon on the patio. The first time I heard
her yowl like that it scared me. This time I was mostly annoyed because
I was sleeping really well for a change. Buffy, it's just some critter
outside. A raccoon or something. Maybe even another cat, but it's
outside. It can't get you. Please play with your toys and let me get
some sleep! G

well if it was a raccoon they have bandit masks so that may have been
interpretted as a burglar.

She's a good watch-cat, that's for sure.

Buffy's yowling probably scared off whatever it was. A cat's yowling is
awesome.

Judith

Awesome indeed! She sounds like a severe weather siren

Except when you're worrying that your cat's yowling at midnight (for
treats) is going to get you evicted!

Fortunately I don't have to worry about that. It sounds like someone
cranked up the siren on an antique fire engine. She does not like
interlopers!

Buffy is usually a fairly quiet cat. Oh, she talks to me from time to
time, sure. But she only yowls when some critter has come across her
path of vision. Then she starts wailing like a banshee. It's a scary
sound!

I called to her to join me on the bed. She didn't. She probably went
to sleep with one ear/eye open.

grin I'm lucky that Boyfie has accepted that he a) isn't allowed out at
night because of foxes b) goes to his bedroom when I do and sleeps all
night, but he does sometimes get up earlier than I do. We're working on "do
not meow at my bedroom door at 6 a.m."

It could be worse. I have a friend who currently has six miniature
Schnauzer puppies. He recently retired, and would like to sleep late,
but ... ;-)
