then she left to go do cat things.
Bobby has a meow that sounds exactly like "Now!" - he uses it when he wants something that he's not getting and is losing patience with us.
Also (but unconnected as I'm sure the above is coincidence) I'm convinced that his understanding of human speech is higher than normal for a cat:
1. In the vet with his MomCat, Molly went first, while Bobby ran around the office. The vet announces "Its your turn" and he bolted into his cage and hid (he loves our vet though).
2. Another time in the vets he needed to have a urine sample taken and the vet thought that she would have to draw it with a needle, but that we would have to wait as his bladder was "the size of a walnut". He immediately started scratching the floor - she ran out, grabbed an empty litter tray and he promptly gave a sample.
3. He has to be isolated from the other cats at food time cause his food is medicated and the others love the taste of it, so we shut him in the kitchen when he's eating. He bangs on the door til we call out "I'm coming Bobby". Then he waits patiently til we come get him.
There are other examples, and I can always tell when he wants me to come nap with him - and if I don't, he will come and find me and meow at me. My bf used to find this an amusing excuse for my napping (I love it) until he was home sick one day and saw it for himself.
Also, he's the only kitty in our house who has figured out how to use the door knocker to let us know that he wants to come in. The rest of them just sit there. And, he only knocks if we can't see him. If we can see him, he just waits til we come over.
