Talking Cats: Equal TimePublished February 6, 2009
By: Jo Singer
Last week I shared an amusing short feature, "Talking Dogs"
While I was a bit unsettled by the lengths to which people will go to teach their dogs to mimic them, nevertheless I was highly impressed by those talented canines who caught onto the game and actually imitated their owners.
And as I gave more thought about my apparent tactless one-sided story which only covered canine communication, in an effort to redeem a non- pawtison approach to the topic, I was inspired by President Obama's "reaching across the aisle" philosophy. I strongly feel that inclusivity for all is the key to greater understanding.
This being said, in the spirit of inclusivity, I felt that it was time to follow suit and take a strong non-pawtison stand which will illustrate how felines might express their unique communicative style.
After watching this monstrously popular video that has received over 7,670,660 hits since its release in November 2007, you will have to agree that felines definitely have a distinctly different approach to communication than the canine species.
