New Riddle

Okay everyone! We did this back in early winter I think and it was really fun so we're going to do this again. This time we have lots more new friends so it should be fun.

We can hear a kitty meowing somewhere in the house but we don't know where it is. We can't find it no matter where we look! Me and Lacey have looked everywhere. Sometimes we think we're getting closer and then it stops.

We don't hear it in one particular place, it comes from all over the house, all different spots. Sometimes it's loud and other times it's muffled. Is momma holding a kitty prisoner? Why would she do that? And why would she bring another kitty in here and not let us meet it? We do occasionally catch a glimpse of something that looks like that might be what's making the noise but it's never in one place long enough and we can't be sure at all that's even what it is.

This happened once before and we panicked big time. It took us awhile to figure it out but it was fun asking everyone on Catster to help us! No one got it though! See if you can guess what this sound really is! And for those that played before, NO, it's not the same answer at all. Something completely different. Momma said she will give the answer this Sunday night.

Help us! It's driving us crazy and we are crazy enough as it is! MOL!

BTW, I have a thread up in the Plus Occasions to wish Apollo happy birthday! He's 17 today and his momma said he's on pain medication and feeling a little bit better. He has cancer of the pancreas so this is by no means a miracle. But he may be with her awhile longer and if we purr hard, he can enjoy many more days with her living happily and pain free.
Happy birthday Apollo!

Thanks everyone! Hope you play our game and help us figure out this mystery!

Gosh Finney, this is a hard one! I'd say your mom was playing cat videos on her laptop but I doubt you'd be afraid of that! That's fascinating rather than something to panic about. :) Hmmm . . . could the wind be blowing through something attached to your house outside and it sounds like it's inside your house?

Hope someone else has better luck figuring this out for you!

Hugs,
Kaci

Nope and nope. But those are two really good answers. We do have chippys in our attic though and that makes mom mad. When they blew in the insulation about 3 years ago, they packed it in there and it was supposed to stop anything from crawling in. Even kill them if they ate it. But no way! Those chipmunks are immortal! We can't get them out, this is a very old house and the crawl space up there is so small, only a chippy can fit.

Nope, nothing blowing on the side of the house Kaci. We're pretty used to that stuff. And no kitty on the laptop. Although if we hear a kitty on tv our ears perk up and we start running around the house like, "what was that? where is it?" MOL!

Oh Finney this is hard. Could it be a human kitten that squeals like a kitten? Also known as a Baby?

oooh man do you have a bird in your house? we do and the first time it said "meow" we kinda freaked he is making fun us and he sounds just like calie when he does it! Maybe you got one and it is just learning how to say "meow" or like Milo said I guess you have a haunted house.

I know, I know. Is it a real kitten? But it's outside the house and it's a stray. And it's asking at different doors to be let inside so that it can play with the cool cats inside the house.

OMC! One of you is SOOOO close! Well, let's say this. The house has always been haunted, no joke. So it's not that and we're used to all the noises and stuff so yes it's haunted and the pipes make all kinds of funny noises besides that but we're used to that.

The wind is always rattling our old windows (even today brrrrr) so it's not that.

One of you is terribly close but maybe you can get more specific. I've given a few hints as to what it ISN'T. Let's see...OOH okay! Sometimes there are more than one AND sometimes it attracts others. How's that?

Mmmmh, I'm just gonna go with my stray kitten idea. Sometimes just one and sometimes more show up because your people put food out for them. If you go to the door to look at them they run away because they are shy.
Or is it some of your neighbor's cats stopping by and meowing 'Can Finney and Lacey come out to play?'
Still stumped,
Mietzi

Oh Oh, can I guess again? It's your Mom going around meowing like a kitten! And whenever you get close and look at her, she stops. Our Mom purrs at us sometimes. We don't tell her this but she's not very good at it.

Okay I'm just gonna tell you the answer now cause one of you pretty much has it and me and my momma both don't feel good right now. I just had a bad time trying to poop and I was crying and everything. Mom thought she was gonna have to take me to the ER but luckily she knows some tricks and I did poop a little but my tummy feels better and I ate with some pumpkin in it, so hopefully I'll go later and it won't be so bad. Sheesh! Stupid long hair! Freaked mommy out too! Plus she has a duper duper migraine that was there BEFORE I did this and she was trying to take a nap to get rid of it but now she can't because she wants to keep an eye on me.

Okay, so Milo is the winner! And more specifically, it's a Mockingbird. They aren't IN the house but they do sit on our stairs outside the window and on the roof next to the windows and stuff and they mock us all the time! It's pretty funny actually. They sound just like real kitty cats. These birds even started mocking car alarms now which is really sad to tell you the truth. Goes to show what kind of noises we have here in the summer.

So MILO WINS! Wins what? I don't have any gifts, I'm sorry Milo. I wish I did! I'm going to think of something for a prize and get back to you though okay? But you ALL had really great answers, even the kittens and mom meowing like a kitten! Those were things we never thought of for sure. Thanks for playing you guys! That was fun!

Thank you Littleboy! I am feeling better tonight. Momma gave me some stuff to go to the bathroom but it hasn't worked yet. She also gave me something for my tummy and I've been cuddling and purring with her and Lacey all night so my tummy feels better. She got really scared, she hates that ER! She didn't want to take me there. Hopefully I'll do an okay poop tonight or in the morning.

It's great you figured it out Littleboy, our last riddle nobody got it!

This was a fun game. Thank you, Finney and Lacey, to think of this. Mockingbirds! We would have never thought of that. We thought maybe a parrot. The nerve of them birds to mock you. Hope you had success in the box, Finney.
