Listen To These Maine Coon Cats Chirp Back At The Birds!
Maine Coon cats are known not only for their large size and their tufted ears, but also for their odd voices, which sound more like chirping or chattering than a “meow.”
These three cats are playing outdoors when they see some birds and start to chirp back at them.
The results are surreal.
They sound like they are purring backwards!
What does your cat sound like?
It is estimated that tens of millions of cats live on the streets of the United States. Sadly, many communities attempt to control their numbers through lethal methods such as catch and kill. Such methods are not only horribly cruel, they are also ineffective and costly. There is a better way.
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the humane alternative to euthanasia for managing and reducing homeless cat populations through sterilization. TNR begins with the trapping of cats using humane cage traps. The cats are then taken (in the trap) to be sterilized and vaccinated against rabies, distemper, and other diseases. Finally, the cats are “ear tipped” so they can be easily identified as sterilized. Following surgery, the cat is returned to the trap and allowed to recover, then released to the site of capture to live out its natural life while being cared for by community volunteers.
