The Latest Noise

All the phonetic sound clusters are gone. As are the cooing and soft noises. All Trixie does now is screech. And sometimes squeak. Somewhat unbelievably these are the noises she makes when happy. If she’s upset, it’s either screaming or crying. (Listen to a 38 second sample below in QuickTime or MP3 format.)

This recording is also available as an MP3 (252 KB). (Click here to download)
The sound sample above requires QuickTime. If the file appears broken, or if you can’t see it, you need to install the QuickTime plug-in. It’s available for free at Apple (click here). I would highly recommend installing QuickTime because, 1) it’s the best media format out there, and 2) I will be using it on the site in the future. However, if you’re having QT problems and can’t deal with it today, a MP3 version is also available for download, which should work on any computer.

    You know, cats make the same sort of sounds when squeezed just a tad too hard or too long…

    Sounds like the special effects from a haunted mansion movie(creaky door/weird sounds)

    That is the sweetest sound in the world. I love when babies start squealing and grunting (that sounds bad, but i think you get my point)

    Well, I have to hand it to Trixie…she certainly has a great set of lungs.
