Cat owners are familiar with the sounds their furry friends make. These meows are important for understanding a cat's needs. When a cat hasn't seen its owner for a while, it will eagerly run to them, emitting urgent meows that melt their heart. Cats also vocalize when they are scared or want comfort. They respond to their owners' calls and use soft meows to display their affection.
However, cats don't naturally enjoy making noise. In fact, wild cats rarely make any sounds to avoid predators. Domestic cats, on the other hand, have learned that meowing can get them what they want - food from their owners. This explains why cats meow at humans and not at other cats. It's a clever tactic they have developed to communicate with us.
