As kittens, cats learn trills and chirps from their mother, who uses them to tell her brood to follow her. Kittens mimic the sounds, often in greeting or to get attention. As adults, cats use these sounds when greeting other cats or people. A cat trill usually means hello. It's generally seen as an expression of happiness. After trilling, your cat may rub his head against you or raise his back to encourage you to pet him. If your cat comes to associate his trill with getting your attention, he may start trilling to get you to pay attention to him. He may be harkening back to kittenhood, too.

Sometimes accompanied by a chirp, squeak or faint cry, the chatter is thought to be an indicator of a cat’s predatory excitement and of her stress at not being able to get to the prize. Some claim the chatter is actually a mimicked bird or rodent call, but this is anecdotal at best as the hunting prowess of cats is dependent on silence and stealth.
