    Does your sump pump, water meter or anything else have a battery backup? At an old house, I had a gas meter in the basement that would softly chirp (or squeak) when the furnace kicked in, making the dial turn.

    Sump pump backup is water-powered w/ no alarm; nothing like that for the gas meter; the FIOS backup system (for internet telephone service, for our 1 wired handset) is in the green. I think I just heard it, and believe it's one of those 'enhanced' cat-toys --- squeeks/chirps like a small creature of prey; getting a flashlight to further investigate <g>

    My god man, do *NOT* go into that basement with a flashlight looking for the source of a strange noise. Haven't you seen any movies?!? :vbeek:

    OMG! Purr-fect if it's a cat toy! Those damn things are always getting lost and the fact that one of them might have a "homing device" feature built in is incredibly - wait, what's the word? - (Evil) Genius! :vbgrin: Your cat can now drive you insane and it doesn't even have to be awake - or alive - anymore to do so. :thumbsup:

    Hook [​IMG] , he's been gone a pretty long time, don't you think? :vbeek:

    Even better, Lauren, to read your and Hook's post w/ Sophie on lap

    for the record, the flashlight was to check under the tv cabinet, to better count how many toys (by design and otherwise) there were :vbgrin:

    That remains to be seen, I guess. Wife insists not a cat toy making noise, that it *definitely* was from the basement (no cat toys there)…the definite good news, though, is all our CO detectors have fresh batteries :vbrolleyes:

    Other beeping theories: dirty furnace filter alarm, something going on with the washer or dryer, tinnitus, your wife is playing a practical joke. :rolleyes:
