Are cats beginning to speak?

Serious discussion only. Why does every "talking" cat appear to be in a state of shock? I speculate that we have a bunch of cats who broke an evolutionary barrier and are among the first to "advance" if you will, and their discovery is shocking to them. Not that many cats have done this yet, but it's a huge sign that we're on some kind of tipping point where within the next 50 years this is going to be completely normal? Now to be fair, I'm not expecting any real comprehension of language from these creatures, but I wouldn't put it past them to start playing around with more advanced phonetics than they are typically used to -- hence the shock that these cats experience when they are "breaking through the evolutionary barrier" so to speak. Thoughts?

    domestic cats seem to do it more. I think they have the instinct to yowl as a threat but haven't had to practice doing it successfully

    This is why we have OpSec. It only takes one cat being indiscrete and then, suddenly, the entire fricking world has new expectations ...

    Sheeesh! The Empire of the Cat Overlords is delayed. Once again.

    Meows are a specific communication sound that just means "human give attention" so honestly they kinda are in the beginning stages.

      I can help you understand anything, except you often think knowledge is evil.
      I think that's evil, because my concerns are with Truth.
      So we usually agree to disagree.

    My friend had a cat that I'm sure is looking dead at this point that said meow. It didn't actually meow. It said the word 'meow.' first time I heard it, I thought it was his sister being weird but no. It's the cat. The cat who says 'meow' but doesn't actually meow.

      Meow is not an onomatopoeia for general cat sounds. Cats actually vocalise meow naturally. Its not super common, kinda like the california frog ribbit trope, but they do it.

    no.
    Both cats and dogs can recognize words, that is associate a specific sound with a specific thing.
    They just can't reproduce the sound because they lack the proper anatomy, otherwise they'd be screaming stuff like FOOD or PLAY or OUT or HELLO all the time.
    Parakeets and blackbirds can do it despite not being smarter than dogs.
    They would need to completely change their throat anatomy to be able to speak. At most you get some dogs and cats who can sort of make sounds that sort of sound like words.

      Not currently, no. Some cats are further along than others. Imagine a bell curve point where only a handful of cats are capable of advanced speech.
      "Oh long Johnson. Oh Don piano. Why I eyes ya. All the live long day," the cat says in a state of shock. "I'm discovering my ability to talk," he thinks, as his housemate sits there meowing at him, confused.

    My former cat (RIP) of 20 years learned my name and was able to call my by it, her pronunciation was excellent. It was both cute and unsettling. There were other witnesses to her doing it but it was completely unpredictable when it would happen so sadly never caught on camera

      Add to this, for a while I legit thought I had a ghost in my house. I would hear what sounded like a woman's voice calling my name from across the house, very loud and clear. Get up and go look, nothing but the cat. After months of this finally actually see it, my cat is wandering around the bottom of the stairs and I see her mouth moving as she's crying "Adam, Adam!" In a perfect human voice. Just about shit my pants when I found out my cat was the ghost the whole time.

        Can relate. Even though my name is just too hard to pronounce, he got me a nickname I can recognize.

    They are stressed and imitating sounds made by their “mother”. Its a fear/anxiety thing. In a real animal it would convince a predator that an easy meal juvenile was an adult so they’d leave.

    Housecats are permanent juveniles, mentally.

    He actually asked me for water THREE TIMES in the lapse of 2 years and said hello and yes back to me, I get chills by remembering but even if he turned out to be a demon I would let him consume my soul because I love him very much and cuddles me to sleep.

    >back 2 years ago
    >heard a "gimme water" in my language
    >sounds like a thirsty child
    >it's only us in the kitchen
    >freak out internally but managed to ask him
    >what do you want?
    >"water"
    >served him water immediately
    >this repeated 2 more times

    >2 months or so ago
    >wake up in the middle of the night
    >heard weird sounds coming from the bathroom, too sleepy so I said hello?
    >heard "hello" back in a little child's voice
    >are you there?
    >"yes"
    >come back to me
    >my car comes back purring and cuddles me to sleep
    >can't sleep because of what just happened

    He also can tell when I'm going out and will follow me, actually follows me to the store almost every time I go and gets mad that the clerk doesn't let him in, he meows like desperate from the front door.
    Aside from that he hasn't vocalized much but I am pretty sure he understands what I say, I've had different conversations with friends or family and if he listens I can tell he knows what is being discussed to a certain degree, if I mention XYZ thing being hidden he goes to check if that's true.

      Animals like this are possessed by demons. Don’t trust them. It’s not a natural thing. A mortal cat with a cats soul is dumber than the dumbest dog but possession allows a quantum being to control their body and do a lot of processing off site in the “cloud” (realm of pure consciousness). All these demons are the remnants of human level intellects that kept reassuring themselves that they existed even as they died.

      This also happens to other animals but only ones that don’t have a strong sense of self. Keep remembering that you exist and are yourself. Practice it. Perceive it.

        Come on guys, this shit is evolutionary not paranormal. I know it's funny to buy into schizoposting but he is the best cat I ever had. Even if it turns out to be a demon touching my nerves through uncanny-valleyness behavior I choose to believe he is just too smart for his own good.

        >typing this at the same time he wants to pry open the grid of my window to enter

        I admit he is a little bit weird at times and sometimes legit spooky but our connection is legit, he may just have anxious attachment or something.

          They’re legit dumber than chihuahuas. Either this is imitating what is an adult in their eyes (like how kittens learn to meow) which would make sense if the words were nonsense, or your cat has a wonder of physics and the answer to consciousness haunting it

            Anon please do not ask the cat questions. Don’t let them have answers to things. This is not normal. Listen to them. Cats aren’t like this, they imitate noises but they don’t have conversations. That’s not a cat.

            No need to ask him anything, will be happy to gib soul to cat.
            He's just different, my cat may think he is a human hence why he is making such a big effort to learn how to speak. Never got along with any cat in the past, always bullied them too hard.
            But he loves humans and belly rubs.

            Maybe all animals have a sort of consciousness in them, haven't you looked at what happens with non-socialized feral humans? they are barely capable of thinking complex problems.
            Poyo is just humanized or something.
