Can You Distinguish Between Your Cats’ Meows?
Jerri, a reader who lives with three GORGEOUS Ragdolls, wrote me and said, “I was laying in bed last night and a Denali and Stormy were meowing at the other end of the house. It dawned on me that not only do my cats have very different meows, but that I can tell who it is who based on their meow. It made me wonder if others with more than one cat could recognize who was meowing just by their “voice”.”
Here’s a video I did years ago of my two Ragdoll cats, Charlie and Trigg and my parents’ two Ragdolls, Caymus and Murphy, meowing. I can distinguish between all of them and also can identify the type of meow most of the time. On a similar note, my sister and I play a similar game where we bring a cat up to each other’s ears from behind. The cat has to be purring and then you have to identify the purr based on hearing alone.
