Why Do Kittens Meow?

A meow is more than just a noise made by cats; it's a language all its own.

"Cats will meow or chirp to say 'hello' or 'I am here,'" as the saying goes. It is normal for cats to meow and surround a newcomer's feet when they enter a home or room for the first time.

Cats often meow because they want attention. According to the author, "many cats will meow to us when we come home—to greet us, to get our attention, to play, or to remind us that it is dinnertime and they are ready to eat,"
