How to Speak Cat
Understanding Your Cat
Some cats (like the Oriental breeds) are vocal and have extensive vocabularies. Other cats scarcely “speak” at all, or have a one-size-fits-all yowl that covers all the bases.
Whether your cat is vocal or not, she will be fluent in body language, a key component of her interactions with you and other animals. By tuning in to both her body and her voice, you can learn to differentiate between “Feed me” and “HELP! Timmy’s in the well!”
The following vocalizations are fairly common to most cats:
• Short meow: “Hey, how ya doin’?”
• Multiple meows: “I’m so happy to see you! Where’ve you been? I missed you!”
• Mid-pitch meow: A plea for something, usually dinner, treats, or to be let outside.
• Drawn-out mrrraaaaaoooow: “Did you forget to feed me, you idiot? I want dinner NOW!” or similar demand.
• Low pitched mraaooww: “You are so lame. The service around here sucks,” or similar complaint.
• High-pitch RRRROWW!: “OUCH!!! YOU STEPPED ON MY TAIL YOU IMBECILE!”
• Purr: Most often a sign of contentedness, but can also be used when in pain or afraid — an instinctual response to hide weakness from predators.
• Hiss: “Steer clear. I’m angry and I’m not afraid to draw blood.”
• Clicking sounds: Cats who are tracking prey will make a distinctive clicking sound.
