  2. Birds of the same species have dialects where the song of the species in one geographic area sing a variation of the same song in another. Horned larks in my state sound a lot different a couple hours’ drive north of me, to a degree I didn’t recognize the song the first time I heard it.

    That said, I wonder if cats have dialects…?

    1. Yes, a very interesting question.. I think that cats do have dialects. My Lola does not meow like the rest of the gang. She is very vocal but does sound like a cross between a rusty fence and the Road Runner. A touch of Siamese perhaps?
      A question for parents of multiple cats: Do you notice of difference in meows?

      1. Yes we do! Oliver prruts and hardly ever meows (he has a very high pitched voice and seems embarassed about it) Nubia sounds like she is trying to inmitate human speech which sounds like a moooaaarrrowwww LOL

  3. Cute graphics and post!…Wishing all of you a very Happy New Year filled with great health, great joy and great love!…xoxo…J, Calle, Halle, Sukki, Mommy Cat, Daddy Cat
