Anyone experienced anything like this? It’s specific, creepy kind of howl, usually during sleep, that starts low and long and soft, but quickly gets louder and higher in pitch right up on the scale until I interrupt him. It’s nothing like his rooing or like his howling when he's left alone; It’s one long continuous note that sounds like some kind of ghost siren or horror movie SFX. It doesn't sound canine or human or anything recognizable. And It can get unbelievably loud and high-pitched. The only way it stops is if I startle him or touch him. It’s eerie as heck! Mostly it happens in his sleep (or so it seems), but a couple times I’ve seen him do it with his eyes open (and not the half-open fluttering grey sleep) and once while lying right next to me on the couch, seemingly 100% awake. I'll go FLYING out of bed from a deep sleep when i hear it, cuz I'm both terrified of the sound and terrified the neighbors will wake up and call the police and/or Ghostbusters. lol It happens in clusters; He’ll go a year or two without doing it, I'll forget about it, then it starts happening again for a little while. Right after adopting him, I asked the adopters of one of his littermates if they experienced anything like this and they said yes, so I thought it was maybe normal (?) or genetic, but today I wonder if they weren’t just mistaking it for rooing, cuz i have yet to hear of anything similar...
