  • I have never heard that before, if you show your cat love, petting it etc... that makes it happy.

  • Seriously, I'll put that in my list of things to do, under talking to the plants. LOL! I do talk to my dog, I say, "Hey dumb ass, get off the furniture". LOL

  • Totally true!!!!! I just praised my cat for getting an A on his spelling test and he told me how good he feels when he makes me proud.

  • I talk to my cats like they are my kids, I even meow with them. I have no idea what we are discussing but they meow back and we have whole conversations. I've never seen a cat that could give a rat's butt if you praise it though. They usually tend think that they are the owners and WE are the pets.

  • I think that if you use a sweet tone (such as praising) they will feel loved regardless whether it's a cat, dog, or bird (mine all liked for me to pet them while I was telling them how much I love them.
