Recently, the Piper Cats have started making a new noise: they stare out the window and make a “chitter” noise. I finally clued in: they do it when they see pigeons on the roof of the house next door.
i’ve never heard this noise from a cat before, and they just started doing it in the past couple of months. The pigeons have been there forever. Maybe my cats are just a bit slow in noticing them.
But why this funny “chitter” noise? you’d think if they were hunting they’d be quiet?
