Do any of your cats mrow after someone says something?

Blynken has started doing this fairly recently. When someone says something in sort of an uncertain way in a conversation and there's somewhat of a pause, he makes mrowing sounds as if he's participating in the conversation.

I am glad to hear I am not the only crazy one.

I have had conversations w/ Elliott infront of my boyfriend and he will look at me and say "You do know that she is not really talking to you, right?" I think he gets a little nervous sometimes that I actually hear the cat "talking" to me.

Well, he's wrong, and obviously he's never had a cat. Of course Elliott is talking to you. Maybe Elliott has a few words for your boyfriend, too, if he'd listen.

Yes! Mia can talk for long periods of time with me. If I am looking at her and talk, she talks back. Back and forth and back and forth and back and forth we go. I like to show friends her "trick." I ask her, "what's your name?" and she, of course, says "meeeeea."

Scully: no. Miko and Beeper: to an extent. Stephanie: yes. But it's not just "mrow", it's a the whole wide reportoire of cat vocalizations, frequently increasing in pitch and volume. It's a miracle to get that cat not to talk

All of my 4 cats do it to some degree. But Poopsie and Tooties are the two that talk back the most.

When I first got Poopsie in 1998, she obviously wanted to hide. We took her in because her current owners were moving to a place that did not allow cats. We would give her a loving home. Well, Poopsie was named Lucky at the time. I managed to get her out from under my bed and hold her. I would speak to her but every time I said her name Lucky, she always responded with a meow.

Kiley talks to me all the time. Hali talks only when he is hungry. Tigger talks when he greets us at the door.
