|James, my boyfriend's cat, rarely makes a peep. Occasionally we'll get him excited enough about shaking the kibble dispenser he'll 'say please', but its always a petite little 'raa'. Recently, once every three weeks or so, we'll be sitting in the living room watching tv at night, when from the kitchen we'll hear a loud and rapid 'ROW. ROW. ROW. ROW. ROW. ROW. ROW.' We always end up jumping up and running in because we expect there to be something wrong. He once had a problem with being constipated where he would have a sad mew or two in the box, but there's been no litter problem and its not the same mew. He'll just be sitting in the kitchen staring at us with his huge eyes like he's saying, 'What? What are you looking at?'
One of my cats will do something similar. She'll go into the stairwell and yowl this really wild sound, and she'll also stop as soon as someone poke their head around the corner. We say she's just yodeling.
James has been fixed, is a single cat now (his housemate was twice his age and passed a year ago), and doesn't appear to be behaving differently at all otherwise. Mom in Law says maybe he's seeing ghosts. I think James is too much of a chicken to sit with ghosts.
A new neighbor did move in recently with a young male who sits on the front porch every now and then, but we never see him around when it happens, and James shows no interest in him during the day.
