    Mavourneen29 saidIt's cute and funny as well. I wonder how it would be when we have a device to figure out what our cats and dogs are saying.

    It will be just like in the movie "Up".... icon_smile.gif

    My cat was actually able to say my name. No kidding. It could not pronounce human consonants, but it could inflect its miauw in the exact rhythm and intonation that my other family members used to call me, to the point that if I was reading a book and it said my name behind me, I would say "yes?" turn around and expect to see a human, and found out I had been fooled lol.
