I heard a cat crying outside my house at 3AM. Opened the window. He screamed at me. Quickly closed the window.

    Purchased your full bundle because your work deserves the support. This excellent cat sound will be used in an upcoming game I'm scoring and doing sound design for!

    Considering using it for a musical, there's a moment the director wants an angry count sound.
