Cate, a New Mom, ‘Chats’ With Her Kittens!

So, are you all ready for your dose of cute for the day?

In this video clip, Cate, a foster cat from the Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association, had six kittens less than two months before the video below was taken.

The seven-week-old kittens gathered around Mama Cat and were all meowing for mama’s attention.

Pam Johnson-Bennett from Cat Behavior Associates explains that adult cats generally do not meow to communicate with other cats, as they have other, even more discreet ways of communicating.

Adult cats meow to get human beings’ attention, when they want food, or to be allowed outside – or sometimes, just love and affection.

Kittens, on the other hand, have not quite mastered the art of subtle communication yet and have a natural tendency to be extremely vocal about pretty much everything, as you will see in the video.

This time, Cate the mama cat, seems to have chosen to talk back to her children, even though she probably didn’t need to.

She emits a more subtle purr-like meowing sound, which when combined alongside the babies’ high-pitched squealing, makes for a true symphony of cuteness!
