But I swear to God, when I call "Kitty kitty" Binx answers with a "Mrow mrow" in the exact same tone as mine when I say, "Coming!" And when I ask him if he's hungry or wants outside, his reply hits the sames notes as my "okay." Exactly.
Now, I realize I'm putting myself out there by claiming my cat tries to mimic my speech, that I'm practically asking for ridicule, and it may (perhaps) be grounds for placing me in the category of "Crazy Cat Woman" but I swear to God I'm not a crazy cat woman. I'm really not. I swear.
It's just that my cat is super smart, tries to communicate with me, knows 50 or so words, and understands the nuances in the tone of english dialogue. That's not a weird claim. Is it?
