...What would cause this? I mean he's yelling his head off and then he's like "Oh, hi." Or is it one of those "I want attention" things? NONE of our cats have ever did this....

I have one cat that does this. He'll walk into another room and let out a high pitched meow a few times and come back out and is fine. I think it's an attention thing.

Most cats meow to locate other cats. He may have recently lost a cat mate or he may be lonely and looking for another cat.

My guess is there is something upsetting the cat. That's what it sounds like to me.

Is it in heat? That is the only time I've heard the throaty meow.

I have a cat that will wander around and meow at the top of his lungs (normal meows) once in awhile. I don't know why he does it.

I don't know why that cat was making that noise, but it scared the bejeebers out of the old cat sleeping next to me.

My Carly had been sound asleep, but that screaming got her full attention!

Well, for about a minute, then she went back to sleep.

It sounds an awful lot to me like the roar that you hear lions do when they are "vocally" marking their territory. I think it is one of those instinctive things that do not make sense when you take animals out of their natural environment.

By the way....it's obvious that you are not familiar with lolcats.com website or you would know that the correct spelling is.... "oh hai"

LOL

Our young, adventure-seeking cat tore out of the room when he heard it. He came back when the sound got softer, and when I picked him up, his heart was pounding.

I don't think I'll play it again, at least not when he's in the room.
