I don't know about a barking cat, but . . .
My cat does a pretty good rendition of "Helllll-ooo"! She usually does this in the morning right outside our bedroom window when she's trying to determine if anyone's up and stirring to LET HER IN! Who needs an alarm clock with a kitty like ours?
She also yodels, which is why she's named Yodel. She does this when she gets caught in a rainstorm or when a front suddenly hits and SHE WANTS IN! With a kitty like ours, who needs to watch the weather?
