More like screaming than yowling, to be specific. First recorded in the early-1980s (possibly from 1981 to 1983), created by Alan Howarth (thought to be a vocal effect done by Frank Welker since he does cartoon animal noises at the time), but it didn't get it's public debut until in Disney's DuckTales episode, Magica's Shadow War on September 28, 1987, then it later appeared in other Disney cartoon shows like Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers. In 1989, The Hollywood Edge acquired the sound to its library of sound effects and later appeared on other cartoon shows like WB/Amblin's Tiny Toon Adventures (1990-1992) and FOX's The Simpsons (1989-today), and as well as live action shows like NBC's Wings (1990-1997). Then appeared in movies such as National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989), and more. Since then, the worldwide popularity of the sound effect continues to appear in other TV shows, other films, and also began to appear in other medias like theme park attractions, video games, commercials, and others. The sound effect can be heard in several updated editions of several movies made prior to 1987 such as Monty Python and the Holy Grail. There are other variations of this sound effect called "Hollywoodedge, Cats Fighting Loud Sc PE917007" from The Premiere Edition Volume 9, which is the exact same sound, and "Sound Ideas, ANIMAL CAT - SEVERAL GROWLS, SPITS, INHALES, HISSES & SWIPES, FIGHT SCREECHES" from the Wild World of Animals Sound Effects Library, which is a low pitched version of the exact same sound.

It is possible this sound was recorded the same time these sounds, Hollywoodedge, Cats Two Meowing Clos PE022401, and TWO CATS SCREECHING AND MOANING (the earliest use of a portion of was heard in Vincent (1982), were being recorded too. Maybe it's the distorted sound from the yowling. It is included as part of the Soundelux Sound Library. Soundelux owns The Hollywood Edge.

Here's how the sound effect goes:

The first part of it is the cats quietly meowing and angrily moaning. Then it is followed by four loud howls and screams. After that there is more quite moaning. Then there are two more yowls. The six yowls seem to be the most used and the most popular, especially 3rd and 4th ones.

More than 50 million companies and shows, movies, commercials, video games, videos, and many more media use this sound effect. There's a 99% chance that you have heard this sound effect before.
