Itís a kitten that gobbles like a turkey [video]
Metro [UK] ^ | 15 Mar 2014

An animal welfare centre in Florida has rescued a kitten that makes an adorable clucking noise when it eats.

Because the three-month-old kitten sounds so much like a barnyard fowl, Orange County Animal Services have appropriately named her Turkey.

A video uploaded to YouTube shows the black cat gobbling up a tin of food.

The kitten is now up for adoption and the animal centre hope her unusual meow, or gobble, can help her stand out from the crowd.

we had a kitten like that; "third" was it's name, should have called it "bird".
One afternoon; it was sunning itself on elevated porch, a bird landed above it,
sensing prey..it leapt (spread-eagle like) and missin' the railing, it flew >20' out to
the ground..we, the family rolled laughing (couldn't move) a good 20 minutes..
the kitty (nonplussed) survived "it's solo flight" got up, as if nothing happened.

My kitty used to do that. Sounded like a turkey that smoked too many cigarettes.

One of Bryan’s parents’ cats did that same thing. That was a very long time ago, though.

Thanks for the post/ping, my friend.

One day during our young and poor days, our cat was being quite a pest. Having had enough, we put him out on our 3rd story “rug porch”. He wanted to be with us, and finally decided to jump from the railing of the porch to the window next to the porch where we were sitting. What followed was an actual cartoon, that we both saw in slow motion.

The cat jumped, and grabbed the sash of the window to hang on to. Because this was a funky old house, the sash immediately dropped off the window. The cat, frozen in time and space, opened his mouth and eyes wide in horror, then, he slooooowly stretched out, his body getting longer and thinner, until he snapped down, gone.

Mr G and I both fell on the floor, literally, roaring with laughter. We just knew the cat was dead, because it was 3 stories up and there were garbage cans below, but it was the funniest thing we had ever seen.

So, Mr G made the climb down the three stories to retrieve the body, and found our guy, wandering around, looking up, wondering how to get back up there. He was fine.

You just reminded me of something. When my husband was at Texas A&M we lived in an upstairs apartment. Our cat jumped for the window sill. The window was open, no screen, the cat went down. I raced down the stairs, not knowing what I would find.

The cat landed on all fours, like cats do but he was completely shocked. Eyes wide open, stiff as a board and after I carried him up stairs, he hid under the bed until the next day.

Lol. Our cat dramatically used at least 2 of his nine lives in the place we lived. He also rolled out the window (no screens) after the previous adventure. Mr G went and got him, and he clung to the low spot (old place, as I said) in the living room floor for a while. Then he would drag himself up on the sofa, and when he jumped down to the floor he would collapse in a heap. The vet (who we couldn’t afford) said he was faking.

I imagine our cat, had "a-what-heck-is-going-on-look", too. Was it a black/on grey striped cat?
ours went missing many years ago..*wondering*..did it fly the coop, we had chickens back then.

I do believe he was black on grey.... but I seem to recall we got him as a kitten. I vaguely recall the work it took to get him to be friends with our dog. Perhaps they were cousins.
