We talk to our cats a lot. Sometimes they talk to us (one of the females when she wants a drink from the tub spigot or wants to explore in some closed off rooms). My wife and I frequently use the cats to talk to each other too. E.G., Aya says it’s about time to go out and shovel the driveway, Bryer says it’s time for dinner, Munchkin says it’s about time for us to put out some bird seed, etc.

Of course! They understand tone of voice, inflection, and maybe even content.
I talk to my chickens too.

Just a few minutes ago, I had a conversation with Lucky. He was sitting on my lap, purring, and I asked how his day was, does he know he is a good kitty, etc. He didn't have a lot to say, but he did look up at me a lot, as if to acknowledge what I was saying.

Both he and Daisy have a very good vocabulary, like " Do you want to eat ? Would you like a treat ? Are you guys ready for bed ? etc. I know non animal lovers would think I was nuts for having these in depth conversations with a cat, but we pet lovers understand completely.

And you get even stranger looks when you tell them that you can understand what the cat is saying. Most of us can whether we realize it or not. I can even tell when my girl Angel is unhappy with me and using naughty words. She's always had a bit of a potty-mouth.

My cat likes me to talk to her head. When she is laying next to me she will smoosh the top of her head against my mouth. I don't know if it's the warmth of my breath, or the feel/ vibration of me talking to her head against my mouth. She does the same with my son. It's another one of her odd things she does, but I guess that it's odd for me too , to "talk to her head".

I still talk to my kitty even though she has been in kitty heaven for almost 20 years. I still miss her. Maybe she's still listening.
