Daily chorus of farm cats

Let’s end the day with some cat cacophony. You’re either going to like this video and its attendant cat chorus, or find it grating. So be it. Here’s the story from Paws Planet:

Farmer Corey Karmann has a pack of twelve kitties in his farm. The gang does a good job keeping the rats at bay. And there’s no abusing here, Corey takes excellent care of all of them and every evening when he returns from work the cats are on the porch waiting ‘patiently’ for their evening meal and that’s when the chorus starts!

Corey decided to film the hungry cats, and later the video captured a lot of attention from the Internet. People thought the kitties are absolutely adorable and would be pleased to feed them everyday.

“These are my farm cats, not stray in any way. They live a happy life outside keeping mice out of my house and barns. Yes, they were fed more than that, I just didn’t see any reason to tape their entire meal. I decided to record this because I thought this little ritual was funny and might bring a smile to a few people faces”, said Corey.

    Nice phenotypic variation in coat colour, spotting, and fur length!

    I’ll be hearing a similar chorus in about 2 1/2 hours and its great!

    “Caterwauling” comes to mind.

    Not quite right, I don’t think, but it’s annoying enough in chorus.

    Even my own cat (who does a similar, though less cacophonous, performance every morning and afternoon) thought that was annoying as hell!

    Great stuff! They all sound like one of our cats. In fact, we chose him based on his superior vocalization. He was able to cry louder than his litter-mates. He is still loud. Our other cat has a completely different vocal style, trading volume for expressiveness. However, the feeding style of throwing it on the floor wouldn’t fly with the missus.

    One of those cats (sort of tortoiseshell) was exactly like one that owned me years ago.

    The fluffy black one’s just like one of my grandkitties.

    Not grating to me! And I’m glad to see that all of these cats are well taken care of.

    Whelp, looks like I’m buying a farm.

      Much better than “buying the farm.”

    Takes me back 60 years. Though ours got a half bucket of warm milk. And cantaloupe rinds in season.

        Most of ours did. Times were tough and muskmelons were musky.

    Awww, the stripy cat on the left near the end of the video reminds me of my little dead Isaac Isaiah…black cat Murphy who is still with me was sitting in front of the computer when I started the video. I wondered if he’d react to the sound of cats meowing.

    He didn’t. I wonder if being recorded sound changes it just enough that Murphy wouldn’t recognize what he was hearing. The video sound didn’t catch his attention.

    Decades ago I had a cassette tape, and at one point it would give a squeak. It wasn’t part of the music. It was a defect in the tape. Well! Fred (she was a girl actually despite her name) would respond strongly. It must have sounded like a bird’d chirp or a little prey animal squeaking. It sure got Fred’s attention big time.

      My previous dogs (and previous and current cats) never responded to noises on TV, but Lucy barks at even dogs in the far background on TV, and if there’s a doorbell on TV, look out! Doorbell plus dogs on TV=pandemonium🐾🐾

      It’s definitely an issue of it being recorded. My cat always stands at attention and runs to the glass door at the deck when he hears cats outside, but doesn’t respond to recordings. I’m guessing it’s not the difference in the sound of the meow, but in the lack of reverberation and location in it.

    Sounds like the background soundtrack to Dante’s Inferno.

    Cute kitties! I can’t play it, though…. I’m trying mightily to keep everyone around here calmed down!
