Has anyone ever attempted to record or has a seriously high quality recording of a cat barfing?

I checked on youtube and a lot of other places and I've been dissatisfied by the quality.

Any ideas?

are you willing to offer monetary compensation for said sample?

If it's really clear and loud, possibly!

Incidentally, I'm not advocating that anyone do anything to a cat to make it barf deliberately.

I didn't even know cats made noise vomiting!


Sometimes, it would rain men. "Hallelujah!", we would cry. Thousands were killed.

My cat pukes all the time...normally in my bed and the only noise it makes is the hacking to get it up.

It's a very distinctive "urp urp urp urp bllaaack!" if you listen to it carefully.

whenever my cat puked it sounded like "hic hic hic huuuaahhhh"

but it wasn't a very loud sound, so it may be a little difficult to record.

The first part (the cat going "ungh, ungh, ungh") could be simulated with a low-passed kick drum.

This thread.

Is complete WIN.

On all fronts.

Seriously, the fact that we're describing what sound the cat makes and even how to synthesize the sound with kick drums...OMG. ROFL.

In other news, I'm betting you that freesound.org has this sound. In fact, I just searched "cat vomit" and found two GREAT recordings of this. Interwebz FTW!

I've heard those also and the quality is AWFUL. It's not very clear or loud at all. Hence, why I posted here ;)

Point 1 - You haven't specified WHY you want this sound...this freaks me out enough

Point 2 - If you want a cat to puke, make it eat grass somehow, they do it to themselves when they eat something that doesnt agree with them and need to puke it up, they just go eat grass, getting the cat to eat it on the other hand...is something else, and not getting your nice sound recording gear covered in cat spew in the process.

There's a reason for it, but I don't want to give it away until it happens.

Also, I'm aware of the challenges. Nowhere did I say in my post, "hey guys this one should be EASY!"

I am assuming a level of technical difficulty.

Is this good enough quality?

Its the same one I've been heard in a few other various places on the net, so if this is in accurate my only other guess would be just flat out recording it. If not I could always try enhancing it if need be.

Well believe it or not, I've heard a cat puke before and thats how its done most of the time unfortunately, and I don't think the quality of your find is near enough to fit his standards, sorry to say.

That's one of the ones I had heard also; it really doesn't sound like a cat vomiting. It's not "Throaty" or "gaggy" sounding, and the vomiting part at the end sounds more like the headcrabs from Half-Life than it does kitty spit-up.

That is not even remotely close. It sounds like splooshing, but there's no "hey I'm forcing out vomit from my stomach" tone.

This sounds pretty accurate to me, all except the ending (my cat used to throw up a lot, before they put it to sleep). It also sounds like they stuck the mic right next to the cat's throat, so you get a lot more bass than normal. I never paid much attention to the end (i was always trying to get it off my bed, or stick a piece of paper or something disposable/worthless underneath it so I didn't have to clean throw-up off the floor), but it didn't seem particularly dramatic. Not nearly as dramatic as a person puking into a toilet. Whatever recordings you find, you'll probably have to stylize them a bit. Good luck.


I just released a short story about a Penguin who goes fishing. It's like Peter and the Wolf, but more self-critical.
Listen!

Brilliant request. I know the sound but I reckon you'd need to get close with a portable recorder... I'm not sure how the cat would react if you were to disturb it mid-vom. You might spook it and end up with a technicolour trail.
