"Nprmal" is a relative term when it comes to cats! In our other house, Izzie used to sit in the kitchen window, and if someone came up the driveway, he'd growl. He grew up around 2 barky dogs, and I expected him to start barking as well. Cats have their own vocabulary, and even though they may understand each other, each vocalization is different for each cat. However, Izzie makes the same me-ow when it's supper time, and the same greeting when we get up in the morning. So, in answer to your question, yes, your kitty is completely normal!

Not exactly,
I do not bark, but my owner's friend's cat barks. That is because they live with a dog. Every cat is different, so it's nothing bad :) unless it sounds like she is in pain :(
Hope this helped!!
