yup my torti Roxy, talks all the time, she now even greats strangers with a little meow, she constantly talks to me while we play fetch, and any time I will pet her she make that trill noise, and not just to me, she will talk to anyone, but more to me. she is so funny, if I leave in the middle of fetch to another room, her meows get different in tone and louder, we've come to very well understand her different moews/chirps, when she is very excited about playing there are longer and lighter, when she is happy, they are short and deeper, when she wants wet food, there are so squeeky, it doesn't even sound like her voice LOL!!! When I moew back we have cat conversations, with different tone and amount of meows! As soon as I walk in the door when I get home from work, she meows and rubs me and humps her back (she wants pets), once I pet her she purrs! She has become so special to me, and brings much joy to my life, she also amazes everyone who comes over, with how freindly and how much personality she has! Even those who dislike cats or black cats, before meeting her that is! I have had her since Feb, from the SPCA, and I couldn't have been luckier, saving such a sick kitty who was truly so sweet!
