Question Cats that coo...

Does anyone esles cat coo? My kitty has just recently started making noises like the coo of a pigeon and I can't work out what the noise means. My Mum reckons it's a positive noise, but to me it sounds quite mournful, so it comes across quite negative.

Any ideas??

Re: Cats that coo...

Coo, chirp, squeak and all sorts of other random non-cat like noises! I guess Maus are vocal like other oriental types and find all sorts of ways to communicate with you. Check what she's doing when she coos and maybe you'll be able to tell if it's a happy noise or if she's upset about something.

Re: Cats that coo...

Oh yes WN,i am proud and delighted to say they definitely do,they chatter,they scream and yap and growl,it's fab and so funny and fascinating to see,our old man Noods can't meow(no really he can't)but has the most loudest purr,and when he opens his mouth you'd think he was about to roar after about 30 secs he kinda squeaks really quietly,bless

Re: Cats that coo...

I think if they are upset they really cry. Mine coo and chirp and mew all over the place - it's just their way of having a bit of a chat!

Re: Cats that coo...

My cat and my kitten coo, nornaly when you stroke them or when they first see you in the morning or if you have been out and just got back.
They also do it when they are running around and when they want to talk to each other.
i do have a friend though who's kitten started cooing and it was because she need neutering.
As far as i am aware though in my fur babies it is a normal noise they make

Yes, Maus are supposed to be vocal, and true to her breed's nature, she loves to hear the sound of her own voice. It's just that the coo was new to me; she's only just started doing it this past week, so I was hoping that something wasn't wrong with her. The only thing is, she seems to do it at different times: one time she'd been doing it for a while, so I gave her some food and she stopped; another time she often does it is when she's playing with her toys and one of them seems to be getting the better of her (like when she's chasing her rabbit foot and she's missed it a few times, she'll coo, or if she's attacking her big cuddly snake and it's got wrapped around her, she'll coo, but this is sometimes it's mixed with a little growl); or another time is when I take her into the garden, she'll sit beneath the tree looking at the birds and coo. This is why I can't work out if it's good or bad, as she does it for mixed reasons. (Maybe the reason why she coos outside beneath the tree is that she wants me to let her go off and chase the pretty birdies! )

LOL Yeah, she was spayed about two months ago, so I don't think it could be any way of calling.
