if you think cats *meow* because they communicate other cats, you are wrong, cats never *meow* to other cats, they use symbols and signs by using their body. the purpose of the *meow* is that that's the only way they can send audible messages to humans. a hungry cat *meows* at you especially when you are eating.

Cats definitely use vocalizations to communicate with other cats. Growling and hissing is essential in territorial disputes! I think they communicate the same with cats as they do with humans, meowing and body language.

I've had many cats in my life. I've had momma cats that talked to their kittens through the "MEOW".When the kittens heard their momma's meows, they would answer and start walking to her. I beg to differ with your statement. If you've ever been around a pair of Siamese cats you would hear them communicate through meows. Siamese cats are know for their "talking".

Oh my god you have one heck of an interesting topic here. I didn't know this until now. Although we don't have a cat I'm still interested because I love pets. Keep up the informative discussions!

Cats definately communicate with each other through sound using meows, growls and hisses. My neighbours cat growls at any other cats that come into our garden to warn them off that it's her territory.
