This sub-project aims at categorising the many different cat sounds into distinct types. It is work in progress, and this page will be updated regularly as I learn more about the different cat vocalisations. More links to videos with examples of the different sounds will also be added.
(based on Moelk, 1944, McKinley 1982 and my own recordings and phonetic analyses)
These sounds are often associated with either offensive or defensive aggression (agonistic vocalisations), but also with prey-directed vocalisations
