Stinkie Spoke To Me!

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Alright, I know y'all are going to think I'm totally nuts. I might just have to agree with you. I can't believe I'm about to tell this story. I know that nobody is going to believe me. Anyway, this evening Stinkie was eating dry cat food out of his bowl in the kitchen. There wasn't much in the bowl and he likes fresh dry food on top of what's already there, only I hadn't added any this time. So, when I walked into the kitchen, he stopped eating, turned around, looked up at me, and then sort of meowed out the words "I want more". It actually sounded just like he was trying to say "I want more". He said it - I swear to you. I'm not kidding, y'all. I'm not sure how to type how it sounded. So, anyway, I looked down at him and said "what sweetie? you want more?" and started to give him some more. But then I suddenly stopped and it hit me - - "OH, WAIT A MINUTE! he said 'I want more'!??", so, well, after staring at him or a minute with my mouth hanging open, I just gave him some more and then he started happily eating again. Ok, really, am I totally losing my mind here?!

I'm really not crazy, y'all. I'm sane - I promise!

By any chance has Stinkie been reading Charles Dickens? That was cool.

Stranger things have been known to happen. I know for sure that cats are smarter than most give them credit for, and I'm pretty sure they get frustrated with us idiotic humans who can't figure out what they are telling us half the time...

Hey, I believe ya! Monkey constantly tries to talk to us, and I am so sure that one day actual words are going to come out of his mouth.

holy cow, i woulda peed my pants! That's awesome, though! No fair, when's Juicy gonna talk to me?

Pleeeeeeeze! You are not 'sane'. I do not associate with 'sane' people. 'Sane' people are boring. A judicious amount of 'insanity' is necessary for healthy life.

Ok. Now that that is out of the way. Of COURSE, he spoke to you. They do it all the time -- it's just that we inadequate humans often do not comprehend. Congratulations on getting past the language barrier!

I think that is totally awesome, I am jealous....Jasper tries to talk to me but most of the time I just have to guess what he is saying since it is clearly in cat language and not human sounding......sigh....lucky you.....

You're not losing your mind. Like I always say, women are the best cat translators in the universe! You may not have actually heard him speak English, but you interpreted it perfectly.

Both my cats are very vocal. The other day, I was telling Sam that he couldn't go outside. He was sitting by the door getting more and more upset with me. We were having quite the argument about it. So I finally just said, "Sam, you're not going out, come here and be quiet". And he said, very clearly, NO!. And walked away to sulk.

Scooter talks to me. He says "go out, feed me now, no, open door, and several other things. It was pretty eerie the first few times. I have cats for years and he is the only one that has ever sounded like he was actually saying words.

Tom Tinker (lived back in the 1960s) could speak several worss quite clearly - meat, milk, more, me-in, me-out, and now... He spoke them clearly enough that the next door neighbor could understand him.

That neighbor lady never did understand us. We had a talking cat and made the daylilies pregnant. (Mom bred daylilies and was trying to explain what she was doing and the only way she got it across to the woman was to say "I'm making them pregnant." )

No, you're not crazy.

Dear Jan, how did you teach him to speak? Jasper TRYS like heck to tell me things and I would love to "teach" him to talk.......or did the kitty just start doing it on his own? I am facinated as you probably have guessed. Thanks for any information

I'm not surprised - cats are better at communicating with us than we are with them. If we miss the body language, they'll vocalize.

I'm so glad I'm not alone in this! I knew I couldn't be the only one that's ever experienced it. Everyone at home that I told thinks I'm nuts though. I hate that I was the only one in the kitchen at the time. I wish someone else had heard him too. It was very cute! When I came out of the kitchen (still kind of in shock) I said "Stinkie just spoke to me - he said 'I want more'" and they just looked at me like I was crazy (and I was feeling like I just might be crazy) and they still don't believe me. But, anyway, ever since then, I've been trying to get him to say something else . Hey, I knew he was a smart cat! That's my boy!

It's between you and him. He'll never let on to any other human, I'll bet.

There are a few things that Chloe says that I swear sounds just like she's responding to me! I don't think you're crazy - some cats are pretty darn good at imitating and "talking".

I think you would have to ask my mom. I was under 10 years at the time. Mom did to talk to him in the morning as she fed him and got breakfast.

I just recalled the cat on Funny videos who was meowing "No no no no no " as they gave him a bath!

If it's not too much trouble, could you ask her Jan. My curiousity is killing me here......and jealousy isn't helping much either....sigh

My Baby and Buddy can meow "no" and "yeah" when I ask them certain questions like "Are you hungry?" "Are you a good boy?" etc

It'd be mind blowing if they could talk to me as in a conversation.

When my friend was leaving from our weekend trip, she said goodbye to Cosette and Cosy gave her a silent meow as if to say "back atcha." Cats are smart little devils!

My cat says "No" when I give her a bath. Almost puts me is tears. She also says "water" when she wants cold water. Me and my BF talk to her like a person and not a lot of baby talk. We taught her to say water. My BF would give her water and say it like she sounded saying it. And he just kept doing it over and over again every time he gave her cold water. She will come up to him now and say "water" or when we walk by her bowl she does this little swirly dancy thing and says "water"
