...underneath our house.
Our house is on a slab, with the furnace at the front of the house in the ground outside. There's a cover, but you know farm cats (or maybe you don't) they get resourceful when the weather is freezing (and they're pregnant).
So here's my question for all you cat owners out there;
Do cats moan?
I'm serious. It isn't making "cat noises" like "meow, meow" but it sounds rather like a ghost with a bellyache. More of a "whoooooooo. ohhhhhhh.....oooooooohhhh." Funny, I never thought I'd be sitting at a keyboard typing out the sounds of an unidentified animal's cries being carried through the heating ducts, but here I am. Isn't life funny that way?
I suppose if it isn't a cat then, god only knows what has taken up residence down there. We had a squirrel in the wall earlier this month who was only convinced to vacate through the use of a very loud radio tuned to the local death metal station. Squirrels hate that. FYI. Thank you, Megadeath.
Anyhoo, I'd be ever so grateful if anyone has some insights into what the hell is moaning under our house. I'm not about to go down there, but I'd feel a bit foolish calling out a wildlife warden for a feral cat. Do moles or possums moan and groan? Again, I just marvel at the fact that I'm typing these sentences. I don't know, this sort of thing just never came up in Boston (though heaven knows, there were a million cats roaming the neighbourhood).
Thanks in advance for your help.
