Ollie is definitely a talker. He meows like any cat, but then he also has these distinctive sounds he makes, one is kind of chirpy almost like a squirrel or something and then he does this kind of throaty sound that really sounds like he is trying to make words. Sometimes you can even hear the question mark at the end. I was fixing their plates of canned food one morning and he nudged my arm and I swear it sounded like he said "I want some". LOL. Miley is a lot less vocal and I haven't heard this from her, just meows. She's sweet and cuddly too, just not quite as outgoing as her brother.
