Some people think that this is how cats talk. Meow! – and all.
In fact, even if you do not take into account the body language of a cat, even with a voice, a cat makes many more different sounds.
Another thing is that our hearing is so weak that we simply do not hear it …
Secret language of cats
Cats communicate with each other using a huge number of quiet (almost inaudible to the human ear) sounds.
This is a barely audible purring, snorting, even such a sound as tapping teeth … Cats communicate with each other, even when we think they are silent)))
What is “Meow”?
“Meow” is such a loud sound (some people hear “Nyau” or “Mau”, in different countries in general in different ways), with which little kittens attract the attention of their mother.
That is, initially this sound is inherent in cats.
Another thing is that cats began to communicate with people with the help of such a sound.
How cats learned to talk to people?
Since kittens attract the attention of their mother by meowing in case of fear or danger, when a person became a “mother” for a kitten, the kitten began to call him that, a new mother …
If it’s true that cats perceive humans as mother cats, then it’s only natural that they yell “Meow!” in case of danger…
We think cats have figured out that humans don’t hear the quieter sounds that cats use to communicate with each other. And therefore, it is with a loud meow that they attract the attention of a person.
Cats had to learn, because we humans are deaf …
Some cats have learned to use different sounds to denote different people.
Sometimes cat owners understand by different variations of “meow” what the cat wants – to eat, play or caress …
There are amazing cats whose meow resembles human speech…
