This is The thread for cat owners here on SirStevesGuide.com.
We all can share the joys of owning some of our favorite animals!
Or their ownership of us...
To lead off the discussion for the day, I will introduce one of my pet cats to you with a very unusual behavior.
I will leave her name anomymous to protect her identity.
Well, my cats are sisters, and I've raised the two, almost identical black short-hair domestic females together, as they've always been since they were conceived.
While I'm still able to mistake one of them for the other if they are just sitting there on the window sill watching birds or something, their behaviors set them distinctly apart.
One of mine eats a lot more than the other, and I think she might have an acidic stomach because she's really needy when it comes to eating breakfast especially.
I feed them Eukanuba premium dry food (interchanging salmon and lamb chop flavors) for the majority of the day.
Once an evening, they share a can of Fancy Feast wet food for which they will whine and beg for, and even send me to the store for, if I'm even the slightest bit delinguent on feeding them.
Well, the more athletic, easy-going, often shy one will eat most of what's in her side of the dish. The Gobbler? She'll eat her share...
THEN SHE HOWLS IN FRONT OF THE FOOD BOWL AND SEEMS TO SPEAK SENTENCES OF CAT LANGUAGE. I haven't the slightest idea what she's saying.
I wonder if she says a prayer after dinner? It's not hostile. It doesn't warn the shy kitty away. They get along great.
If I go into the kitchen, she pipes down. It's when I'm out of the room, I observe, and definitely hear this behavior. It goes on for over a minute or two. And she's like saying different words - it's not just "me-ow."
What is going on?
