Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment. It is a way to help animal welfare without much effort at no cost. Comments help this website too, which is about animal welfare.

A video went viral on Tik Tok a video-sharing social networking service. It purporedly shows a black domestic cat saying ‘hello are you coming?’ to her human companion. He is astonished. It is nice and charming but it is not a cat speaking in human English 🙂 . Let’s get that clear. Domestic cats produce many variations on the standard meow and other sounds. The spectrum of sounds is huge and often very individualistic. Domestic cats don’t just meow, purr, hiss, yowl and caterwaul. The variations normally concern close communication situations typically when communicating with their human guardian. These modifications to domestic cat sounds may be a result of the human-cat relationship i.e. cats have adapted and learned to live in the human environment. For instance the meow is a cat-to-human close communication and a request for something normally food or to be picked up or some other personal request. Scientists tend to call ‘cat sounds’, ‘feline vocalisations’.

 
P.S. I have not embedded the video because often these are deleted by YouTube which means they fail on this site. Also an audio file focuses the mind.
