    By speaking cat to your pet you can have much better communication, and in turn strengthen your relationship. Cats are much more vocal than a lot of other pet animals, and so talking to your cat can be very useful. For a guide to talking cat, see the following tips.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    •    Firstly, observe how your cat interacts with you. Does he appear to listen to you, or ignore you? Some cats may only be interested in you when there is food about.

    •    Start by talking to your cat in a friendly tone. Cats prefer to be spoken to in higher pitches. Accompany this with some stroking, so that the cat knows you are speaking cat positively.

    •    Make a clear distinction between positive and negative speech. The change in tone when talking cat is imperative in effective communication. If you are telling your cat off, your tone should be louder and harsher.

    •    When speaking cat, use certain words. Cats are intelligent enough to learn what words mean after some time of using them repeatedly. Use the words in conjunction with showing the object, or carrying out the activity. For instance, say food as you are serving food.

    •    With some constant talking to your cat, you should start to hear some talking back. Speaking cat back and forth is a good way of maintaining a good bond with your pet, so keep it up.
