Barred Owls (and other genus Strix) have a caterwauling cry which sounds almost like a human child (high pitched) or a cat shrieking. If you did not actually observe the "cat" visually, then perhaps that caterwauling was the "cat" mentioned in your "owl vs. cat" post. Several times I have heard "Who Cooks, Who Cooks for You" duets turn into caterwauling between pairs of barred owls, especially fall and winter time. These vocalizations were heard in Lake Forest Park, so not so far from you.
