Having recorded audio evidence of Tucker’s strange cries, I thought I would record more sounds from the beasts. This one comes from Neville. It’s not as otherworldly as the roly poly’s, nor as inexplicable. The Nevsky is the only cat I have, or can remember, who vocalises his anticipation of a good meal. You may have to turn up the sound on this; it is what I hear at most meal-times as Nev’s bowl approaches him, sometimes even before the food is ladled out.
