word for shooing animals

i'm having trouble remembering a word used to dismiss or shoo animals in turkish; it was taught to me while living there and may be a regional invention.

"hoşt" for dogs, "kış" for poultry, "pist" for cats, "yallah" for humans.

"Pist" for cats. You need to say it quick and sharp with a hard 't' sound at the end. You can prolong 's' sound for a more frustrated shooing. :D
