You're Not Crazy. Your Cat IS Talking To You.


Well.. you might be, but it's ok because your cat doesn't think so. 

If you have ever lived with more than one cat, you might have noticed they don't really meow at each other. Rather than meowing at each other, they communicate with body language. 

Cats will eventually learn your habits and find you don't catch on to their little body language. They also hear the way you chat with others, so they learned to get your attention they need to be more vocal. Now some are more vocal than others but when they are meowing they are indeed meowing to you. 

So don't be rude! Meow back!  

Unfortunately, if your cat is meowing or talking to you they need/want something. They are not checking in to see how your day went. But it is still pretty cool that they are trying to communicate with you. 


An experiment by  examined humans and cats to see how they were communicating with each other and found that people were better at interpreting the meows from cats they lived with versus cats they didn't know. 

So you and your cat basically have your own language!

    In my part of the world, my friends call me kitt. I was able to rescue my Talley Car financially but am reaping the rewards along with the bills. She is five months old today and is still a little behind. She has recently discovered she can meow and startles her as much as myself. She doesnt meow often, but when she does it is an event.I love Meowingtons and all the catworthy mews.

    Nothing wrong with a talk with your fur balls. I carry on or talk to ours all the time. They are smarter then most humans are.
