Pam Johnson-Bennett, who is of Cat Behavior Associates, goes on to explain that adult cats generally do not meow at other cats, as they actually have other, more discreet ways of communicating.
Adult kitties only meow to catch human beings’ attention, when they want food, or to be allowed outside – or just love and affection.
Kittens, however, have not quite mastered the true art of subtle communication. Instead, that have a tendency to be very vocal about pretty much anything, as you can see in the adorable video below.
Their mama, whose name is Cate, must have decided to talk back to her children, even though she didn’t need to. She emits a more subtle purr-like meowing sound, which when combined with the kittens’ high-pitched squealing, sure makes for a true symphony of cuteness.
