How much do you talk to your cat?

I just realize that I have lengthy conversations with my cat. Maybe I need to get out more? Please tell me I am not alone out here! (About the conversations, not about the need to get out.)

Here is an example of my possible decent into madness:

I stop Athena at the cat door between the living room and the lanai because she has a lizard in her mouth.

Me - You are not bringing that lizard into this house!
Athena - meow?
Me - Because the last thing we need is another lizard in here. And it isn't nice to the poor lizards either.
Athena - Meow
Me - I said no. There is already a lizard under the sofa that you brought in yesterday.
Athena - Meow!
Me - No, no lizard heads or tails either. I know it is in your nature to hunt, but I still said no.
Athena - Meow?
Me - Yes, you can come in, but you have to put the lizard down first.

Dogs have owners, cats have staff.

Our home belongs to Hera, Zeus, and Athena.
And there are some humans here too!

I talk to Gizmo all the time, He almost always responds to my voice with a very loud purr and sticks his face into mine.

I talk to my cats constantly - to the point where when I ask my husband a question and he doesn't answer, and I ask him why he didn't answer me, he'll say, "I thought you were talking to the cats". LOL

From the time I get up to the time I leave for work.... then from the time I walk in the door until we all go to bed.

My favorite conversations are when they answer. Like if I walk past Book laying on the floor and say, " 'sup?" ..... he never gets up but looks up at me and answers back with a, "mreow."

I always say hello when I see them and they always meow to me when they come in a room and see me. The talking is limited to food and keeping the critters outside. Altho I have to admit very small lizards and bugs I seem to allow.

LOL Kneazles,
I talk to mine a much the same way. My DH thinks I have lost it completely but has a chuckle anyway.
The girls always respond with those purr-trill sounds they do when they talk to each other. Today, in fact, was the first time Belle ever used a meow to catch my attention!

I talk to Blacky all of the time... and funny enough, he seems to understand everything. He even knows when he does something I do not like and starts giving me that look (lowering his upper lids and his head and looking up for me)... he breaks my heart when he does this.
