Changing the duration, height, timbre, cats can say a lot to those who understand them. Cats make sounds for a variety of reasons, some more often, others less often.
The typical sound that cats often make is a short, soft meow, reminiscent of the joyful tweet that cats make when they see you coming in. The cat does this when he’s cowardly across the room to greet me. It is a joyful sound.
There are different type of meowing, which can be expressed by the words: “I want something”. These are more demanding, loud and long sounds than a welcome tweet. Most cat owners hear this sound when it comes to eating time, when a cat is sitting by the door, or when it is locked in a room where it no longer wants to be.
