A Chorus Line...
Funny that I came across this post just now... As Chipcat-Filou is being talkative...
Yes, my cats talk!
Especially Chipcat-Filou, she is an Ocicat.
She will talk to my other cats, such as when she wants to cuddle with one of them, she will approach the cat and meow in a specific way, always the same...and then will head bump and lay with said cat.
Chipcat-Filou is also the 'food ambassador'...
When i'm a little late with the feeding schedule, she will come to me and rub on my legs, hands and meow until I get to it and feed them!
The meow she uses in this case is NOT one that can be ignored, so she knows if she does it, the food will come very soon!
She also has a special greeting for me when I come back home; she will stand on her hind legs and gently touch me with her front paws, emitting a wide range of sounds.
She also makes this very cute sound when she is looking at birds thru the window, she makes a ''chipping''sound, (hence the name), almost like she is imitating the birds...
She also cannot stand me being in the shower with the bathroom door closed, if I do that, she will meow loudly (but I mean loudly) at the door until I let her in.
Time at which she will hop in/stand inside the tub and watch me shower, she is not afraid of water either (tho unlike Airell, she will not get in the tub for a swim, she only likes showers...)
Chipcat-Filou also warns me if anything unusual happens in the house...such as if one of my cats opened the fridge door and are in there helping themselves, or if a cat is in the food pantry and is making a mess ( I had to get these child-proof locks on both fridge and pantry doors since my cats figured out how to open them, but I sometimes forget to use them...), and when my phone rings, time at which she will locate the phone, paw at it and meow even louder than the phone...perhaps she dislikes my ringtones?
Chipcat-Filou also warns me when a feral/stray friend is at the back patio, time at which she will stand on the ledge and meow loudly to call me over to greet our outdoor friend!
My other cat who talks is Elphin, he is a rescued cat from my alley.
Elphin meows loudly to greet me when I get home, he also has this cute little ''jumping dance'' he does to greet me.
Also whenever I open the fridge... Elphin knows there is always a little treat for him in there...
Elphin also meows and runs around the house like crazy when he or another cat has visited the litterbox and I need to remove something from there... What a clean cat!
The rest of my 'tribe' are not that vocal, of course, they will all meow at feeding time, but asides from that, they are pretty quiet.
