Speak to Me!

Even if your cat doesn't know the words, the meaning is clear. Your tone of voice and body language convey much to your pet.

So the next time you aren't sure whether you should verbally express yourself in the presence of your cat, speak up! "I'm constantly encouraging my clients to talk to their cats more," Gamble says. "Use your voice to deliver affection. It's like a vocal stroking, and that means a lot to your cat." Use your voice for training, bonding and basic interspecies communication.

Your cat is listening.

I totally agree with this article. They know by the tone of your voice what you are asking of them. I trained my boy to paw me twice when he wants a treat and picked it very fast and very well. There is no doubt the intelligence they have when you do talk to them and play with them.. Love my cats.
