So my chat must have made an impression on her.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Last night after the kits ate their wet supper, Penny actually joined us in the living room for a game of laser tag!

Just the night prior, I had had a talk with her, encouraging her to relax and join the family, and gently chiding her for having missed out on some laser tag fun.

Then yesterday morning she greeted me for the very first time, and last night she chose to join in on the fun! And we all had a great time.

Yup - I'm convinced: cats can TOTALLY understand what we are saying to them. If I had any doubts before this, I don't have any doubts any more.

Oh that's good news! Of course cats know what we're talking about, would you think any different!

I agree Betsy.... even if they don't hear us word for word, I think they understand the emotion we are trying to convey....

I know cats can understand us, the problem is do they choose to listen!

I am so glad she is beginning to join in more!

That's great Betsy My animal communicator tells me to talk to them because they understand what we are saying...I told them all about Lucia coming and that I got her as a present for them and they never blinked an eye when she came in the house. Although Joey stared at her with his mouth open a lot

I agree, I know that Charlie hears and understands me when I tell him to get OFF the dining room table.............he choose NOT to listen and gives me that "awww mom I'm just an innocent baby".

I have always believed that animals can understand what we are saying.

I totally agree. I know that they don't understand every single word in the same way we do, but certainly they know the most important ones -- AND if we speak to them as we would an intelligent child, WE naturally use body language and tone of voice in ways that convey our meaning much more clearly than specific words. So much of their own communication is by body language, it should be no surprise that it works. But then it doesn't surprise us...

Glad to hear that sweet Penny is relaxing and joining your family.

Awww Penny

I absolutely 100% believe they totally understand.

I have had the advantage of being with mine 24/7, since they were born. And we certainly have developed communication between us. I understand their "meows" and they understand me, too.

I say many things to them, like "come here", "let me see your belly", "give me sugar" etc. and they always follow through, even with different tones I use with them. But maybe I just have too much time on my hands.

I've always been sure that they understand everything we say. And wonder why we don't understand them as well.

That's wonderful to hear she's settling in.

They do understand you, they pick up on your tone, and your body language...just yesterday I was having a tough day and I started to cry. Within minutes my sweet Stanley was there to rub his nose on mine. He made me laugh and then bounced away to chase a dust bunny.

Who says cats are aloof?
