    Does anybody else's kitten like to talk to themselves? :Dizzy: Haha, Belza will be playing with her toys or just randomly go to our stairwell in our house where it echos and meow. It's not a little meow like she's talking to me, it's a big meooooowww/howl. It's kind of weird.. Just thought I would see if there are any random talkers out there too :BigSmile:

    Snuffie isn't really a random talker,,but she is a talker,,,she meows every morning around 6:30am or 7am to tell me to "Get up and feed me", she meows around 7:30am to tell me to "Open my window WOMAN!!", then she meows if my arm is in the way and she cant lay on me, or if I'm in the bathroom and didn't let her follow me in then she'll meow at the door to scold me, or if I close the shower curtain too far and she cant see me she will meow and push the curtain back so she can see me or If I go in the kitchen for any reason she meows for treats...she is a talker,,,anything and everything and she is telling me all about it!

    Hibou isn;t a big talker...she pretty much just meows when we talk directly at her...or if we are outside on the back deck and she is in the house, then she howls up a storm...today was something new...she sat at the front door and meowed! But not her usual quiet voice, a big giant meow!
    Weird
    Oh and she meows if the litter box isn't clean enough too!

    Pedda has gotten a lot more vocal since we lost Little Ren. She still goes from room to room and howls which she never did before. Other than that the only time she really talks is when she wants my attention for a specific reason.

    The only are REALLY loud when they can't see each other in the house. It is like they can't stand to be more then 3 feet away from each other. Juno and Jack are joined at the hip. Ben on the other hand can't stand the other two so he hides by me most the time. Sometimes I can't find him when he gets mad and hides from Jack. Jack is a bully.

    Yep Mo can be pretty vocal! He has his quiet days, sometimes we will go 3 or 4 days where he just wants to do lots of sleeping and cuddling. Then he has his more talkative active days. He talks to the birds out the window. He also sits and meows really loudly for ages, sometimes and I can't figure out what he wants! It is a wierd noise when it's really loud, like a 'ROOOOOOOOO' sort of noise!

    Tanker became very vocal after losing his brothers. His cries were breaking my heart so that is how we started adopting DSHs from the shelter.

    The company helped a bit and he would only cry out if the house was very quiet and he thought he was alone. His first cries sounded like he was calling "hello" and if no one answered he would start this frantic cry that sounded like a lost child calling for "mom".

    Nofuratu talks his face off in empty rooms and howls like he's checking the acoustics or something and also meows repeatedly in the middle of the night in peoples faces...very vocal.

    Kika would talk in his sleep. It would wake me up in the night. It was so haunting because it sounded like he was calling for a long lost friend. I mean it would go on and on. I would wake him up and he would look disoriented and confused. I long cuddle would change everything. Dinka is still too young. :Dizzy:

    Keano barely meows at all! He groans and coo's sometimes but barely ever meows. I try to get him to meow for food, but it's often just a couple of squeaks!

    Alice will cry if I leave the room when she's asleep and she wakes up alone. She thinks I abandoned her, but once she sees me she runs and jumps onto my shoulder so she can cuddle until we go back to bed.

    She'll also cry at the litter box and do a pee pee dance if I haven't cleaned it. She'll wait for me to clean it while crying.

    Little Kokka is a talker...and LOUD at that. If she can't see you she cries...we measured it and it comes in at over 85 decibels!!! A sustained noise at that level requires ear protection! It's hillarious...
