Question What does this cat bx mean?

For the last couple years of our 15 y/o Siamese life (Merlin-deceased as of 2006) he would wander around the house and make this bellow of a meow. We often joked he had sundowners syndrome but now our 10 y/o male (Doobie) has started occasionally doing the same thing with the loud meow. It's not like Doobie is looking for anyone b/c we are typically in the living room...but it's almost as if this is some sort of call out. I don't know...cat's bx's seem much harder to interpret than our dogs. Doobie is in good health. Merlin did have CHF during the last 6 months of his life. Any cats folks know what this type of meow means?

My cats do this when they are playing with sparkle balls sometimes. The are actually holding the ball in their mouths while they howl. Someone told me it is what a mother cat does when she catches food for her kittens to call them to dinner, but my male cats do it too.

My cat is part Siamese (and part lynx) and she will do this low bellow occasionally, it seems when she sees a bird or squirrel in the trees outside the deck. Maybe it is an agressive signal to them? I just tell her to "stop that" in a stern voice, and she does! Then meows contritely like a little kitten. She has been thoroughly checked by the vet recently and also in very good health.
