|Phoebe's Mommy here:
Now, this is a harder one. When I lost Spice, I knew that any cat I got after her would HAVE to have a different voice.
When I got first Phoebe she had a whole "dummy dumb dumb" thing going. I mean, the old expression 'dumb as a box of rocks' kind of fit. Don't get me wrong, she was smart in many ways...learned the whole layout of the house and used her litterbox within one hour of her arrival home. But, everything else, any noise, item, seemed new and unknown to her. I figured she hadn't been exposed to too much prior to my adopting her.
I started her with a little girl voice and frequently said, "I'm a kitten," anytime she did something stupid. Other times, she would look at you with the "What-y????" expression. And if I heard her doing someting and called her name, I would usually answer for her, "NOTH-ing!!!!" When she is doing something bad, I have her say that "It's funny fun fun!"
I still use the little girl voice, and she has a little girl meow.
The irony is, she is HUGE compared to Spice who WAS a little girl who only spoke with her expressions (she did not meow) but I had given her that big, imposing, Hattie McDaniel voice.
I can't really place who is would sound like....maybe like a female version of Howie Mandel's little boy voice?
