One of my neighborhood cats is possessed. It hangs out near my front door and speaks demonic phrases in a low-pitched, alien sounding voice. If I ever get a camera with video capability I will try to capture and post, because you can't fully appreciate it from my description. It is not going "meooowwww" or anything like that, it is speaking with an American accent and intonation, complex words and phrases with inflection. Just not any words I immediately recognize. Imagine a cat with the language abilities of a parrot, and that's pretty close, except it lowers its voice pitch too so it almost sounds human..

The best part is, never having seen which cat was doing this, I snuck over to my screen door and watched it talking to the birds in my yard. Eventually I said "Hey cat" and it went quiet, turned and looked at me, and in a tiny high pitched little cat voice said "meow" and then walked away. I'm not making this up.
