  • I have 2 cats and i love talking to them. If my youngest cat named Manie is doing something he shouldnt and i tell him to get down he listens. And if i ask my girl cat if she is hungry or i tell her she is beautiful she will meow. So yes i believe they understand when talked to. I treat my male cat like he is a child. Me and fiance refer to him as our son. Yesterday Manie was sleeping in the dirty clothes hamper and i said look at your son lol. We love him.

  • Yes. My dog understands so much it is funny. People see me tell him things and how he reacts and are surprised that he has learned so many words.

  • Thanks for making me feel a little less crazy for talking to my dog like she is a person! LOL Have always done this and I swear not only does she understand, but sometimes she seems to answer! (Body language and little snorts...LOL)
