    ... I would be able to play the words back and learn how to say "It's you!" in cat talk.


    We have a friend who one of our cats has taken to. Usually Kedo will already be at the door when he hears hubbers coming home so he'll be winding around our friend's leg before I realize we have company.


    But this time Kedo was asleep on the bed. So I woke him up to go say hi. He was bleary eyed and made some confused noises as he slowly walked toward the living room. Then he saw our guest and emitted two clear syllables and ran to him.


    It was very cute. And I'm sure it was gratifying for our friend, who recently lost a cat to a sudden illness.

    Cluck? Clucking cats?


    Kedo can be very chatty!

    Brother knows a few curses.

    Joe doesn't talk much. He mostly uses body language. ( :

    And that's all our boys.

    Oh ... clucking like a hen party. ( :


    Our three have all been known to sing for their supper .... One is a bass, one is an alto and one is a soprano. They harmonize quite well!

    My wife's 9 outdoor cats sing all the time. Sometimes at night, they form a choir and sing all night long. They seem to like the old 40's and 50's stuff except at Christmas. Then they sing The 12 Days of Christmas.

    My two grey cats make a lot of noise and respond with all sorts of sounds when spoken too. They verbally call me when they want something. They can respond with yes and no sounds when they understand a question (food? outside? play?). Cats use a lot of body language and eye contact when they communicate among themselves. Some breeds and individual personalities are more verbal and outgoing than others. I have a preference for the Korat breed and those with green reflective eyes (as opposed to red).

    I trust Democrats more than I trust cats... Cats are small lions and if they had the bigger size like a lion does, they would use us all for a play toy and then lunch. Never, ever, give a cat steroids.

    I had a recorder running on my little female Korat cat the day I brought home a second female cat: Angry Nikki (MP3 3,269,888 bytes). I never thought a cat could be so jealous and make so many sounds (may need headphones to hear when she whispers, LOL).
