This work presents a dataset of cat vocalizations focusing on the meows emitted in three different contexts: brushing, isolation in an unfamiliar environment, and waiting for food. The dataset contains vocalizations produced by 21 cats belonging to two breeds, namely Maine Coon and European Shorthair. Sounds have been recorded using low-cost devices easily available on the marketplace, and the data acquired are representative of real-world cases both in terms of audio quality and acoustic conditions. The dataset is open-access, released under Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International licence, and it can be retrieved from the Zenodo web repository.

Abstract

This work presents a dataset of cat vocalizations focusing on the meows emitted in three different contexts: brushing, isolation in an unfamiliar environment, and waiting for food. The dataset contains vocalizations produced by 21 cats belonging to two breeds, namely Maine Coon and European Shorthair. Sounds have been recorded using low-cost devices easily available on the marketplace, and the data acquired are representative of real-world cases both in terms of audio quality and acoustic conditions. The dataset is open-access, released under Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International licence, and it can be retrieved from the Zenodo web repository.
