My cat Teddy is like that - so talkative. When I adopted him, I chose him from the foster group because he was described as "quiet," but once he got used to my house & his new brother, he turned into Chatty McTalkerson! It's taken me a long time to get used to the fact that all his grumbles and chatter don't mean that something's wrong, that's just how he is.I do love it when he talks to the squirrels... or to the flashlight... or to something reflecting on the wall. :)
You tell 'em Wylla.My floofy tabby girl -- also full-grown small at 7.5 lbs -- is super chatty too. And when she bounces up or down the stairs she always vocalizes some squeaks with every bounce. I think she sounds like a squeaky toy bouncing around!
That sounds exactly like my kitten Mitzi (also a petite floofy girl); every hop, jump, and skip must be accompanied by a trill. She mews for attention and then, once she's gotten it, starts warbling away. And she cries whenever she can't find me.I wonder if it's a small kitty thing - if they're afraid of being overlooked because of their size, so they're more vocal than their larger siblings (bio or adopted).
Must be a thing with petite floofy girls. Our Gogo, long-haired black yak-cat (only way to describe her hair), is easily our most vocal cat. Her favorite trick is to silently jump up on the desk next to me while I'm working and yell directly into my ear so I can give her some love.
I also have a tiny floofy girl and she was pretty quiet (just a few mews and brrrrp!s ) here and there every day, until she hit about 16 or 17 and now she looooves to flat-out yell, especially in the mornings (she probably got that from Grandma, my mom, who always thinks I sleep too late).I grew up with a super-yelly orange boy cat so I like to think the spirit of my baby brother has now found a home in Mini. Cat-yelling is hilarious, even at 6 a.m.
What a sweet voice Wylla has! Does she ever yell? Emily has become *extremely* good at downright YELLING at me, and I have to admit I would much prefer to listen to sweet coos and chirps and trills and gentle meows like Wylla makes!
So cute! Do she and Charlene have conversations?
This video is no good without speakers at my office!!! (ok, 1/2 good but still)
OMG! How sweet! I have a talker, also - Miss Esmerelda has a lot to say, too! Love chatty kitties!
O...M...G... What do you want, sweetie? A treat? A snuggle? The moon? [empties pockets] Here you go. Take it all. Buy yourself something nice. :-)
LOL! That would be my response too :)
This! 100% this!
Our rescue boy, age 4, is very chatty like Wylla. He has various trills, coos, and chirps for "Hello" or a gentle "What's up?" or "Pet me, please." Every morning he greets my husband with the same trill that ends on a rising note. He's the first real talker I've had and it's so sweet.P.S. Wylla's ear tufts are about to take over! Every detail of her is so precious.
Well said, young Wylla! Well said.
My two Siamese (Dylan and Albert) talk a lot as well -- between themselves and to no one in particular. I often wonder if they are talking about me or their big brother Henry. :)
My Siamese mix often talks to himself, as well as to me. It's adorable to hear him chirping and cooing from another room.My calico girl was quiet when she arrived but I think he taught her to talk as she is now quite vocal with me.
I just want to pick her up and cuddle her!
That sounds like my Maine Coon. He's always talking....he doesn't meow....he whines, grumbles and trills instead.
Oh what a sweet little chatty kitty she is!
Oh my word, that is adorable!!!
She sounds just as cute as she looks!!
That is just lovely. Really lovely. I'm so gonna play that for the Bisse. I can't wait to see the look on her face. (The Bisse is my cat).
I really don't think Wylla could be ANY cuter... What great little noises she makes!
She is so so supercute! And she's got the same big eyes as one of my cats :)I'm very glad you decided to keep her!!!
Wylla is like a chirpy little birdie. I love her delicate but persistent sounds!
Eeeeeeeeeeeee! >heart sploding<She reminds me sooooo much of my much-missed special needs Chloe, who was also petite & majorly floofy, & looked to be Maine Coon/Norwegian Forest Cat. She had the same gentle spirit, same chirpy trilly voice, similar markings, the sweet green eyes... it's like I get to see again. <3
"Pick me up ! pick me up pleeeeease pick me up !!!"
Oh my she is just lovely
We love this baby! xx
I grew up with cats, but my current two are the most talkative I've ever met. Constant talking, often loudly, in our home. I love it, though. Talkative cats are a blast, even if they may occasionally test your patience. :-)
Around here, my big white boy Sam tunes up like that at feeding time and I always tease him about how it's clear he's about to waste away to nothing, or it's clear he's suffering from Fatty Liver Disease and about to die from not being fed since that morning. Such a piggy, my boy! XD I also have a black half-Siamese girl named Maya who's Extremely Mouthy, except at meal time (go figure. I guess she figures Sam's making enough noise for both of them). Really rides my nerves at times, but she's such a sweetheart that I don't quite have the heart to make good on my 'threats' to kick her out if she doesn't quiet down (I suspect she's figured out that, after nine years of saying the same thing, my threats are empty).Growing up, my family had a petite white girl named Snowball who never topped 6 pounds, and 5 of that was probably lungs. That cat never stopped trilling and chirping. *chuckles* She had enough cattitude and sass for three cats, easy. I loved that girl, and sorely missed her after we had to put her down when she was fifteen (advanced kidney disease). All the family cats when I was growing up were strays, and the two cats I have now are rescues. The cat my parents have now is a rescue I suggested to them when I was looking to adopt a second cat.
Our girl Kitty chirps, trills,and squeals. It's like living with R2D2. Her brother is C3PO, of course.
