This Cat Only Knows One Word, But He Uses It Quite Well

Posted by Stacey Venzel

You'll laugh when you hear the sounds of this cat.

Cats do more than just meow.

While dogs only make 10 vocalizations, cats make over 100. By and far the most entertaining is the "oh no no no" or "nom nom" sound, as seen in this video below.

Just when you think it can't get any funnier, the cat reaches a different pitch.

Though the noises in this video likely have you rolling on the floor with laughter, it's important to note that some vocalizations, while entertaining, are a warning sign. This particular sound is often associated with territoriality over food, cautioning pet owners to stay away. Sometimes, the noise occurs out of fear.

If you can't tell why a cat is making a certain noise, observing the cat's body language can help you decipher its meaning.

The typical meow we associate with cats is only heard from kittens to their mother in an attempt to garner her attention. But they stop making the noise soon after kittenhood. However, domesticated cats make the noise as adults to humans for the same reason kittens do!
