When Cats Talk…
Cats have a lot to say when they want to tell us something, don’t they? Around here, when cats talk, laughs tend to follow…
These kitties below have a whole lot to say!
Funny Cat Friday 7/19/19
Do you have a chatty cat? Or the strong, silent type? 🙂
Our Dizzy can be very chatty. She will often hold conversations with us, until it obviously isn’t getting the reaction she’d intended…
I also had a cat who sounded exactly like a police or ambulance siren when he was protesting something in his environment. There is a recording of him somewhere around here I’d love to share with you some time. He was a comical character!
(Please note: Before I even get accused of such – I never ever condone treating an animal poorly so it will behave in a way that is considered ‘entertainment’ for some. That behavior in my book is shameful and just plain wrong.)
When Cats Talk At Your Home – What Does It Sound Like?
Looking forward to hearing your stories about any funny cat noises you’ve witnessed. It’s amazing what their vocal cords are capable of!
Have a truly wonderful weekend everyone 💙 Thank you for reading & sharing!

Cats do talk and yes you better listen. They can be very chatty.
I linked this post to Feline Friday.
Have a fabulous day and weekend, Holly. ♥
Very chatty indeed 🙂 Thank you so much Sandee. Hoping your weekend is wonderful as well. ♥
We have chatty cats, whiny cats, silent cats, and grumpy cats that all have a lot or little to say. Then we have the bird that imitates the cats.
I’m always amused by the descriptions of your household Tim! 😁 Sounds like a whole lot of animal attitudes going on. I love it.
My cats were always quiet, but they’ve become very vocal in their old age, especially Teddy. When he wants something he lets you know about it.
Aww! Teddy sounds adorable! He figures he has nothing to lose by trying, huh? Really nice to hear from you Correne!
It is VERY important to LISTEN to a cat’s no.
Silence, for cats, is not consent or lack of consent.
And the shame involved.
Haha! I love your comment! You have clearly learned the art of cat communication 😁 Thank you so much for coming by! I hope you will return.
Funny you should write about chatty cats. My cat Amber loves sleeping in the bathroom window, but I had to shut it the other day since we’re have crazy heat wave. She tried to get back in it and got mad! She followed me around for 15 minutes fussing about that! 🤣
😂 Amber sounds like a charmer! Absolutely adorable story. She is outraged by the unfair treatment in HER own home! How dare you mama!
The heat wave is happening here as well on the coast. 😪 It has been horrific. The humidity has driven the temperatures into the 110-115* range and it is oppressive beyond belief! The mountains definitely aren’t used to such extremes. I hope you & your family are staying safe? ♥
Haha! Whatever was I thinking? 😀
Ugh..that’s terrible. We had storms come through today that really lowered the temps. I hope you guys stay safe! 🙂
That white cat in the video is hysterical! Laughing at the cute noises they’re making ~ and thinking of our Nemo who goes “meep” when we say his name. Love that he responds to his name 😀 Have a great week, Holly!
I adore that name – Nemo! So cute. And that “meep” noise when you say his name sounds like a heart melter! It’s amazing how charming they can be, isn’t it?
Praying your week is filled with tons of love & joy my friend. ❤
Yes,cats do talk. When I was 4-5 years old,I used to play with two kittens.It used to be so much fun to listen their different funny noises and to understand their demands.Your videos are are so cute!!
Your story is so sweet. Cats will definitely talk to us, sometimes quietly and other times not so much! 😀 When we listen, they are telling us much more than we realize. Thank you for your heart. Kindness is always beautiful 🙂
Gizmo is a funny kitty – I think he is part Bengal so naturally he is chatty, but he tends to vocalise certain things and not others. For example, he squeaks when he comes home; as if announcing he is home and everyone can relax! And he also announces when he has thoughts of naughtiness?! Right before he jumps on top of the kitchen wall cabinets, he always tells us…giving us time to talk him out of it!! Kitties are such characters!! Great article! Leanne and Gizmo x
I LOVE that story of Gizmo’s chattiness. How adorable! The squeak to announce the arrival and all is well in the world has to make you smile every time you hear it 🙂
It’s funny you mention that he lets you know he is about to do something bad before he does it. Dizzy does the exact same thing. Bill & I have always thought that to be hilarious. Just like Giz, we can usually talk her out of her naughtiness before she gets too deep into it 😛 Isn’t that funny? Kitties are *definitely* some serious characters and are endless entertainment. No doubt about it ♥
Thank you so much for sharing this with me. You’ve made my day!
Oh, our kitties are wonderful aren’t they!! Sounds like Dizzy and Gizmo would get along!!
Yes, the naughtiness announcement is usually when I lower the tone of my voice and say “Gizmo, no…” but the smirk on my face must undermine my authority, so Giz decides that he could do what he wanted to do, or he could come to me for cuddles… So that usually works for both of us!!
My life would be a less happy place without Gizmo! Hope you have a great day! X
When we first got Teagan (her name was Smokey) and she would open her mouth and wail and keep going . . . she often would yawn in the middle but it just went on and on and on and on — one long ‘meow’. She doesn’t do that any more, but it was hilarious. She still meows as she runs down the stairs and that is funny. She always has a lot to say!
Aww! What a cutie Teagan sounds like! (love the name by the way) I was picturing in my mind perfectly what you were saying. So sweet.
Does she make that bouncing meow as she runs down the stairs? I’ve always thought that was funny – the distinct sound their talking makes when they’re in motion. Sounds like she is filling you in on all the most important details of life.
Thank you for sharing this story with me. I appreciate you ♥
Wow. Ten months later, I am seeing your reply. And -YES! Teagan DOES make that bouncing meow as she is running downs the stairs. It is so funny. Often times my hubby and I will mute the TV so we can listen to her yeowl from another room. We always ask if she is ok. She is so funny!
Love your videos. They are hilarious! My 3 cats complain non-stop everyday. One will meow until he gets a totally clean litter to poo on (every single time). The other one will meow until he gets treats (even after a full meal). The last one just meows all day so I give her the attention she wants.
My friend – you sound highly trained by our most manipulative feline friends ;D So cute! I am very grateful you came by to share that story with me. It’s only fair we provide top notch service to them night & day. 😹
Thank you for your visiting! I hope you will come back and spread the word 🙂 Blessings to you and your furry family!
I often think one our cats is more like a kid being done with the bathroom. You know how they called to be helped with wiping or flushing. I always feel like she is saying, “I’m done now get rid of it!”
You open your opens and they can feel you too!
I just read and article recently about linguistics/researchers at MIT analyse old primate sounds/languages and found out that they have language capabilities but very limited than human’s. They can only link up to the most 2 items in one sentence or something likes that while we can much much more. Perhaps cats too have their languages but we don’t understand them yet.
Wow! So glad you shared that with me. It sounds like fascinating research. I think we haven’t even begun to really scratch the surface on animals and what they can comprehend – both emotionally and linguistically. What do you think? 🙂
Thank you so much for leaving such a thoughtful comment! ♥
The video is gorgeous and made me smile 🙂
Love, light and glitter
Awww! It warms my heart to hear you smiled today because of a video I posted. Isn’t it amazing how much brighter we can make each other’s day if we simply take the time to care? 🤗
Thank you for letting me know you enjoyed. Your kindness means a lot! ♥
Yup. I know how much I appreciate it when people text ‘hi’ Well, the one person who does that is 🙂 It’s definitely amazing! It’s why I try and comment when I read people’s posts for I know how much I appreciate it
Love, light and glitter
It’s indeed fun to hear all the different sounds cats make! I’ve had some who were really versatile talkers and I wish I had recorded them! Others rarely came out with even a soft “mew” but found other ways to communicate. Best to “listen”, to whatever way they try to get their points across!
Haha! You are absolutely correct – we definitely better listen to every form of communication they’ve got! It’s always comical to me how many different methods our kitties will use to get their point across. Not paying attention? “Oh you will now – watch this!!” 😀
I enjoyed hearing about your cats. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me! I appreciate it ♥
Each cat speaks differently. I had a cat who never mewed and never purred. He’d gurgle like a human baby instead. I live on the first floor, ground level, and people walk by all the time. Once, I heard a girl saying to her friend, “I thought it was a baby,” when my cat made these sounds. And instead of purring, he’d make loud sounds that I don’t even know how to describe. Too bad I didn’t tape him.
