One of the semi-feral tom cats around my house tends to walk around loudly announcing himself.  He has a very distinctive deep meow.  Some of what he is saying is "This is my turf!  No other tom cats allowed!" and some of it is "Come here pretty lady kitties!"

Sophie won't quit shouting, but I'm giving her a pass on this one because I rather suspect she misses Lily.

Rika, on the other hand, needs to quit reminding me she's Siamese and oh by the way can she have pettins?

There's a huge blackbird sitting right on the neighbor's lawn where my cat can't go because the special fence is too high. She knows that. She is NOT happy about it. So she sounds like a miniature combustion engine that was filled with the wrong fuel and now sputters furiously.
By the way, does anyone else have a cat that can pronounce the letter "g"?

That sounds a little like mine. She will curse a blue streak at me when she's mad, with lots of gah-gah-gah noises!

Of course, laughing at her does not improve her mood. ;D

Diana is not speaking to me.

I took her to the place where they poke your tummy and stick needles in you after making you sit on a meat platter (scale).

Then we started force feeding her liquid (antibiotics) twice a day and changed her food. 

She is not a happy camper...but will condescend to allow pets before & after the liquid force feeding (1 ml in an eyedropper), as it is only right that we attempt to make up for the indignity of force feeding her.
Let sleeping dragons be.......morning breath......need I say more?

Oh, I know the words to this one too - in the middle of the night I get poked with the Pointy Endz until I turn over into proper Cat Cuddling Mode. This involves lying on my back with my arm curved around so that there's a snuggle space, and she can put her chin on my shoulder. Unfortunately sleeping on my back does nothing for my sinus pain or post-nasal drip, and, according to my DH, makes me snore.

...that is exactly my cat's Approved Sleeping Position, too! :o If I don't cooperate, she sits on my head. :P

Harley steps on my head if the door is not open enough for him, just a crack won't do any more.

...I sneezed and disturbed the stillness of her perch on my belly/arm.   :P

Because he's got ear mites poor thing, and I have to pin him down and scrub at the one ear.

I have a sick fascination with cleaning cat ears  :-[
