Ruby's making a weird noise
For the past couple of weeks Ruby's been making this odd hissing noise. If any of you ever watch The Big Bang Theory, it sounds like Sheldon's laugh. She seems to do it as a warning that she doesn't want to be touched. I doubt that it's something to be worried about, but it just seemed odd that she should start it so suddenly.

On another note, she's trying to say a couple new phrases - I love you and Watcha doin'. She's so smart!

LOL Sheldon's laugh...<3

Cal does this too on the veeerrry odd occasion.

She does it when she is facing away from you in her snuggie hut and didn't hear you approach.

I think it's like OMG attaaaack!'s just you....Hi.

Is she making a dog sound? Rosie has a big growl and bark when she wants too. It is amazing to me the words and sounds our greys pick up. Especially the ones we are not teaching them to say!

Re: Ruby's making a weird noise
I didn't think it was anything to worry about, it was just odd. My son actually likes it because he's a HUGE BBT fan. If anyone hasn't watched it, it's very much worth the time.

The things they pick up is amazing. Ruby also mimicks Jade's signature "HiiiIIIIiii" - very flirty and Max's little whistles.

Max was making a noise that was obviously a mimick of something and we couldn't figure out what it was. We finally figured out is was the squeek our pantry door made. Our son would feed Max every morning then open the pantry to make his lunch. Drove us crazy for a couple days.
