siamese cats

Why does a Siamese cat meow sound way different from other cat meows?

My mom said to put my age in my siggy so keep in mind i am only 10 when i ask a question or make comments.

They speak a different language..Siam??..lol.

I have to say....I am not sure but am very interested....I do think I read it had to do with the vocals development and length of that muscle...but I can not remember if the breed was Siamese or not.

I don't think it's actually a different meow. I think they are just more vocal and use more of a range with their meows. They just have a lot to say, LOL. Think about it. Most cats only meow once in a awhile so if all you ever said was "Hello" then you wouldn't really change how you said it. But you talk far more then that and have a wide range of tones you use with your words to help get your point across. Same with Siamese cats(or more vocal cats in general).

That's my theory at least, haha.

Probably just vocal tones.

I think its a very good question!

Not only does my Sully meow different (and much more often) than the other kitties, he also purrs different... he's always making some sort of noise. Whether its purring, meowing or something in between, he's always got something to say. I don't know why, I guess its just something they are born with, like how some people sing and some dont. I sure enjoy his talking though
