I think 'Growl' should also be OK for noise when ready to attack, our cats make a low throated growl and with a tail-wag then........ attack!.... they make the hiss if something suddenly fronts up to them, they arch their back, tail goes down, mouth opens showing teeth and they hiss, but it seems more defensive than attacking.

Hissing is the main one. the one that is most common. The surest way to tell a cat is thoroughly pissed off is if it hisses. Sure, growling is something they also do, but a lot of predatory animals growl, whereas not very many predatory animals at all hiss. When you think of an angry cat you think of hissing. At least, most people do.

Purely trivia (not disagreeing with the angry noise answer) but my cat made an angry purring noise- very deep and throaty- when she thought she heard a snake.

Clue #10 originated in Taiwan (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cat_caf%C3%A9)

That's what I thought too. I have a friend from Taipei and when she told me about the cafe there, I was amazed at what some people will pay to be able to do. I guess because I come from a place where cats are everywhere (I have 4-6 at all times depending on who shows up at supper time) it seems strange to me. She said that the concept was later copied in Japan - I think it was in Osaka. So Japan was my next guess.

"Hit Cat" was a very minor character in The Aristocats. The clue would probably work better with a different cat's name, such as Thomas O'Malley, Berlioz, Marie, or Scat Cat.

I'm with those who requested "hair" be accepted in lieu of hairball, seems common sense to me. Whatever form its in, it's still hair.
