I Meow At Cats

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,332 People

    It's the polite thing to do.

    Put yourself in their paws, trying to start a conversation with someone over and over again and either getting no response at all or being talked to in a language you don't understand. I don't speak Cat very well, but I do believe they appreciate the effort :)

    And sometimes, if I'm lucky,

    they meow back. =^..^=

    I find it funny whenever I meow at them

    and they look around curious where the sound is coming from and like "was that my momma??"

    It's was cute, I was feeding my kittens

    and they would meow and then I'd meow back. I love having this connection with my kitties! 🐱❤😊

    I got eye-level with my cat.

    I said "Meow." He put his paw over my lips. For those of you who speak cat, did I just insult mine?

    My wife has three cats.

    One of them jumped on me and meowed so I meowed back. The cat responded with another meow back so I just went back and forth with the cat. Now the other two do the same. Now I can have a basic conversation with the cats that only consists of the word "meow". That's a good...

    To defeat your enemy,

    you must get close to your enemy, become friends with your enemy, prowl and slink and scowl like your enemy, purr like your enemy, meow like your enemy, and eventually become your enemy...

    It would be rude to communicate with them in a

    language they don't understand.

    He meows at me, and I meow back. It's rude not to. ;-)

    I used to have this little,

    white furball, who'd always get lost in our house in the weirdest ways possible... then we would meow back and forth until I found her on top of some drawer behind a closed door or even locked up in the tiny, dark room under our stair to the basement... Well, after rescuing her...

    I don't do it often but sometimes,

    when I see our cat, I just can't help myself and meow at him.

    My bf has two kittys.

    I like meowing back at them when they meow. Lol. I will hold his cat Mia and she'll meow and I'll meow back while petting her. I love cats... ❤️😺

    I have conversations with my cat,

    he just looks at me, because he's lazy, and meows back. Then he might come over and start ranting in cat language, he does love to complain.

    Well...yeah...why not?

    If they think enough of you to take the time to chat, why would you be so rude as not to answer?? Smh.

    I mean, not like random cats,

    but I do have conversations with my cats. Guess I'm destined to end up the neighborhood cat lady with a zillion cats. So far just two cats, although I'm highly allergic to them >.<. Nonetheless, I have full recordings of catversations that I've had with my kittens. They...

    If a cat is going to meow at me,

    I'm going to meow back. What else are you supposed to do? Just ignore them? That's a bit rude really. I've often noticed that cats are quite chatty and we can meow back and forth for ages!

    My wife and I have 6 cats,

    and I have come to believe that I understand what each one is saying or wanting. Yes, I meow back at them, and I sometimes get a response.

    Not only that, I moo at cows,

    and bah at sheep and YES quack at ducks. My kids are used to it. I think the animals secretly hear my thoughts too. You don't know they don't.

    That is how my cat and I communicate.

    She will just stand there meowing until I meow back, then she proceeds forward. She will meow at my window when she is outside late at night, and I meow back to let her know I'm on my way to let her in. Sometimes she will stand outside and won't enter until I meow back.

    So I decided to meow at this one cat,

    and I guess I shared a conversaion or something, because it followed me all the way home. Now it sits outside my front door and my mom can't leave the house because she's deathly allergic

    Remember Oreo and Nada?

    These two are our cats at home. N has been introduced to Oreo since he's a few months old, and he loves Oreo a lot! And i think Oreo loves him too. Oreo would allow N to pat him, grab him anywhere he wants, poke his ear/eyes/pull his fur, and wont bite/scratch him. *whats...
