Goats, gripes, and grasping for greatness
and the morning was shattered by a four-alarm... cat?

Hercules
While I was doing chores in the front pasture this morning, I heard Hercules sound the alarm in the back pasture. We have a six-day-old baby goat back there, and "Lost - Great Dane" notices around the neighborhood, so I thought it was worth some dispatch in running back to see what was going on.

Apparently Hercules has decided to raise his level of offense-taken when the neighborhood black-and-white cat cuts through the vegetable garden. That cat, who was innocently perched on a pile of dirt, was deemed worthy of four full llama sirens this morning.

That cat could be UP to something!

Cats usually are.

Stranger danger is very much alive and well in my pasture. And nothing is stranger than a llama yelling at a cat for existing.

Oh my... this has me laughing- and I don't even know what a llama siren sounds like! :D

This isn't quite as high pitched as Herc, but it's a pretty close range.

My small human is utterly uncertain what to make of that noise.

Oh, I'll believe it. The first time I heard it, I wasn't sure the source. I mean, I was looking right at him, but he had his mouth closed. This is entirely a nasal-whine.

Pookie was very displeased when I played the clip, so if the alien cat had a similar reaction, I suspect Herc got exactly what he wanted.

Ok, THAT was amazing! I'm impressed they can make sounds like that! Yowza!

Can you flash his bios? Or maybe his bias? (I imagine you doing this by running through the pasture naked, holding various felines)

I'm sure there is an off-color joke to be named here.

Yeah, Herc wasn't raised with dogs or cats, so he takes offense at both.
