    It’s funny how those of us with cats (I have six) have kind of known this
    already, but it’s nice to have it validated. Particularly the purring
    part…
    Thanks so much for this video…now I can share with friends & they won’t
    keep saying to me ‘how do *you* know what they’re saying?.

    I love it.

    Speed video is too fast. Can’t read. This is typical of american videos.
    Seems like they don’t read at all !

  8. Mauro Tamm says:

    You shouldn’t have cats if you need video to understand how they behave.

      +Mauro Tamm You kinda have to learn before you know. It’s a GOOD thing to
      do research *before* you get any type of pet even if you don’t yet have any
      experience with that type of animal.

    I fucking miss my cat…
    He’s temporarily living with my parents and now I feel like I sent my poor
    boy to a foreign country where nobody understands him >.>

    Great animation/art style and equally nice voiceover. Thanks!

    I have no problem talking with or understanding my cats.
    All 6….. Yes 6 & YES I’m one of “THOSE PEOPLE”
    I just wish I could pick the movies we watch on “movie night”.
    Think I’m kidding? Click my icon, scroll through all the other nonsense
    I’ve posted & look for / click on “Cat watching the cat from outer space”
    This weekend we’ll be watching the Grumpy Cat movie (AGAIN)…..
    But they also like Blade Runner, Alien & some other sci fi so it’s not all
    bad.
    :)
