  • Meow: The sound made by a cat/kitten. Also see purr, etc. here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cat_communication – Mamta D Apr 3 '15 at 7:31

  • @pyobum Fox's actually make a yelp/yip sound similar to dogs. – zeel Apr 3 '15 at 19:23

    @zeel No worries, then. Now the OP knows the sound of puppies, kittens, and foxes. – pyobum Apr 4 '15 at 4:46

Kittens and puppies may make the same sounds as adults to some extent - just as adults may make less mature sounds.

Cats: Meow, purr, cry, mewl, hiss.

Dogs: Bark, yap, yip, whimper, whine, groan, growl.

"Bark", "yap", and "yip" are really the same vocalization - smaller breeds and puppies just can't manage as low of a "bark" as larger dogs.
