Pepper seemed to be a little embarrassed by all of the din coming from his body. He jumped down from the couch and walked to the other side of the room, where he plopped down on the floor and glared at me.
Because I could, I immediately opened up a new browser tab and searched for "cat stomach gurgling". The first result of my search was the article Gurgling Sound in Cat's Stomach at Animalwised. There I learned that the medical name for the sound was borborygmus. That was actually more interesting to me than the actual causes of the problem, which could be anything from eating too fast to digestive tract disorders or inflammatory bowel disease.
Dictionary.com told me that, should I want to use the word in my next conversation, it was pronounced [bawr-buh-rig-muh s]. That's quite a mouthful.
