I list below the spelling of some domestic cat sounds:
- Meow - this is the normal spelling. I have seen alternatives such as "mew". There are a wide range of meow sounds. One odd one is made by the cat who cries out at night for attention (not sexual activity related).
- Yowl - this is also called a "caterwaul". Heard during sexual activity - calling etc.
- Trill (Maine Coons are known for this sound but other cats make it)
