Who else would they talk too? Well besides you. Cats don't talk to each other. They may hiss or growl at each other, but they dont meow to communicate with each other.
Out of my three cats, all will make noises at different times at pretty much nothing. What they're saying who knows..lol
Please please please give Maggie the steak! Its not too big for her little mouth!
Their impression of power is remarkable. They give one the feeling of immense reserves of energy, of great reservoirs of knowledge, of tolerance of disposition, obstinacy of purpose, and tenacity of principle. They are responsive, and they have a lot of quiet, good sense.
-J. Wentworth Day, from The Dog in Sport, 1938
