No matter what anyone says to the contrary, I fully believe that communicating with cats is truly a very special art form.
Through the years, I have found that the majority of kitty lovers that I “meet” on the Internet, or those friends in real life who also live with cats, honestly regard themselves as being fluent in “cat speak”. They are not only able to understand what their kitties are “talking” about; they get a huge kick out of sitting down to have heart-to-heart conversations about a variety of things with their beloved fur-family members.
But what I enjoy the most when I have the fortune to interact with any of these devoted cat keepers is how deeply they treasure each and every moment they spend with their remarkable felines. I find myself completely delighted by the words they use to describe these special moments of kitty communication with their fellow felinophiles.
Naturally, there are those folks who have little or no experience being around cats lack a well-founded appreciation of the species. As a result they are completely incapable of understanding why we feline devotees idolize our cats. They are also prone to accuse us of being simply anthropomorphic; sneering audaciously at us behind our backs.
However, with the easy access cats have to the Internet, while the one time popular message boards for cats are not used as frequently today following the advent of Twitter, our crafty felines always can find ways to reach out to other kitties to openly and fully express their feelings!
Although it takes a bit of patience and practice for us humans to easily interpret the written language of cat speak, this writer thinks it is well worth taking the time to learn it, in order to check out their Twitter account now and then. But then again it could be rather unnerving to find out what our kitties really may be saying about their furless two-legged companions at that particular moment. This said once we get the facts, we can quickly remedy our behavior and restore the harmony between us once again.
But in order to better illustrate exactly what I am talking about I found a video that was originally uploaded to YouTube by hkbecky. It featured two cats who appeared to be indulging in the sport of fisticuffs.
However, JustinCElliot voiced over the same video demonstrating its true meaning since he fully grasped the communication between these two cats. Therefore, in my opinion, Justin is a far more “tuned in” cat lover, and is fully fluent in their language.
So do take a moment to enjoy “meeting” Goo and Yat Jai, the communicative cats starring in “Patty Cake Cats”; a video that quickly went viral.
