If you’re a cat parent, you may have gotten used to being greeted by them when you come home. As it turns out, it’s not just dogs who like to welcome their pet parents. Cats also want to say ‘hello’ in their feline vocalizations to greet their caretakers.
How precious! In this endearing clip, we see the cat’s expressive meows acting as sweet hellos as if he’s calling out to his mom to find her.
Cats are known for their unique vocalizations. In fact, meowing is one of their primary ways of communicating with their pet parents. While meowing is more commonly associated with kittens trying to get their mother’s attention, adult cats also use meows to express their needs, desires, and emotions.
In the case of this footage, his meows serve as a way to locate and connect with his parent. It’s almost like a unique language they’ve developed, a way for the cat to say, “Hey, where are you? I want to be near you!”
In addition, cats are very much intuitive creatures and often form strong attachments to their pet parents. As a result, meowing becomes a way for cats to seek attention, tell you they’re hungry, or want some of your attention. In fact, some meows may also carry a specific meaning, whether it’s a friendly greeting, an ask for food, or a call for cuddles.
To us, it’s fascinating to see the unique communication styles of our feline friends. They have an amazing way of capturing our hearts with their meows and capturing our attention as they seek connection with us.
