Ask Dr Jo: What does your cat’s meow mean?

Apr 02, 2019

If you listen closely, you'll notice your cat has an extensive vocabulary of noises. The most commonly heard sound is the classic ‘meow’. However not all meows sound the same or mean the same thing.

From ‘’Hello!’’ to hunger, animal behaviourist Dr. Jo Righetti looks at the assorted noises your cat makes to help you understand your favourite feline a little better. After all, who could resist wanting to know what their feline friend is thinking as they speak to you early in the morning, or while weaving through your legs.
