Dear Luz,
Your cat dragged in an Annual Cicada.  The chirping noise you mentioned is typical of Cicadas, and some species of Cicada are considered the loudest insects on planet earth.  According to Live Science:  “The chirping and clicking noises of the male cicada are actually a species-specific mating call that can be heard by females up to a mile (1.6 kilometers) away.”
