Mrrrrph? (Hey, what do you want?)
Mrrrrph! (I'm going to get you!/Pet me/ I am playful)
Mahw-aeu? (Is there something you want?/Is something the matter?)
Aeu-Aeu! (Usually follows Mahw-aeu when I say it back to Aerowyn, no clue really what it means)
Ae-Ae-Aeu-Aeu? (Usually when I go on the porch and look at the cats and say some nonsence cat words elliiot will say this to me and look at me, and make as if to get up and come by me, so I assume its like *Is there something youw ant?/Is something the matter?/Do you want something from me?*
Mreau-aeurffff (Usually aerowyn says this aloud to herself at night "I'm bored!")
Also varied noises accompanied by purring and pawing at my arm by elliot means "Hey, pet me, I want lovins"
Aeu!!! (Usually emitted from cat after I poke one fo them when they are sleeping
Mreau-Aeu?? (Said when cat is nowhere to be seen, means "Hello?/Where are you?/Mom?/Call to me!)
and of course there are the usual growls (from elliot, never heard aerowyn growl) which mean "Put me the hell down!/Stop touching me/I dont want her touching me!/ etc. He usually makes this sound when I pick them both up at the same time, or when I hold him when sitting down.
They make a bazillion other noises but these are the most common.
I can also tell so much more about what they want from their ears and eyes and tails. If you tell elliot he isnt going outside today, he will look at you with his ears back and then turn around and walk away, bum in air, tail twitching irritably. I find I often can understand elliot very well but he is quite an unusual cat and seems to have a talent for communication. Aerowyn is a bit simpler than him but I still know what she is saying.
