Ever Wonder if animals talk to each other?

Like in Look Who's Talking Now? That was just on tv last week. I have a cat and my friend brought her puppy over. The cat, Star, had a watchful eye on the puppy and at one point even went over and sniffed noses with the puppy. We all were just wondering what the cat would be saying to Phoneix and to my friend Gerrie, like, "Why did you bring that thing into my house??" and "Dont' get any bright ideas!" LOL

One of my cats, Smokey, is nicked named Boss Lady as she like to talk, give orders, to everyone. She talks to our dogs, and has a special call when she wants them to come . She brings them "treats" live mice and sometimes avacados. She called them out one night to chase off a stray that was trying to start a fight with her. She hid behind something and once the invader was gone gave each dog a head nudge and soft meow to say thank you. She fusses at us when it is time for bed, gets mad and tells us about it if we let her dogs put in the front yard unleashed. And even gave a friend's dog the third degree. When my friend brought his dog over for the first time she got right in his face and I guess told him the rules of the house. I wish I had a video camera that day. She didn't snarl, hiss, or growl just "talked" meowing at him in various tones. The dog just sat there a little bewildered at this cat that didn't run from him and didn't try to claw him up either. This went on for almost a full minute and at the end she gave a final remark that I swear was equal to "GOT IT? Good!" The dog never barked at or chased her again.

I love your stories. When i was young, we live next to the railroad tracks. We had a female cat named Ziska (a long haired white, a real beauty) who knew the trains were dangerous, and would herd my sister and our large German Shepherd-St. Bernard mix behind a parked car to protect them when a train came by. I call that love! She also took in an extra kitten when another cat proved to be a neglectful mama. We didn't need to coat it with butter. She knew it wasn't hers, but cared for it like one of her own.

LOL God I hope not considering my cat likes to watch me in shower!! Could you imagine some of the things they might say? Besides I like having a cat that doesn't talk back...one of the benefits over kids. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

animals can communicate with each other, but just as we use language which not understand by them. hungry, thirsty or want to play, of course, use their own language without our knowledge.

i think they have their own animals ways of talking to each other. i have seen animals flirt with each other to mate and some animals look like they are arguing with one another to get out of their faces.

I think animals do talk to each other and they talk to us. Their language might be different; but if you know your pet, you can understand what they're saying.

i gues they have their manner to communicate between eachothes but i think is really different compared to our common sense in communication!i guess their communications or thoughts should b lead by instinct and common behaviour for their races in humans all is complicated so we can communicate for reaon or even for instinct too so is much more complex!!

They are definitely telepathic. They communicate very well, from what I have observed with my crew. Oh yes, I talk for them, too. Sometimes they are pretty easy to read. LOL And they are a whole lot smarter than most people give them credit for.

Yesterday Booboo went off on Timus and we didn't know why. Booboo, on the whole, is a very laid back boy, but he will "remind" some of the cats that he is the biggest. Timus, on the other hand, is a bit of a "mixer" and we didn't know why Boo went after Timus UNLESS Timus was saying something like "nee ner, nee ner, nee ner - you ain't nothing but a kitten momma" to Boo because he lets Flower suck on his neck

I know that bees communicate by movements to show other bees where they find pollen. Cats and dogs probably communicate by smell. I think it's a sort of hello when two new animals meet and sniff each others butt. I guess that's how they "talk"

Hmm..they might not necessarily be "talking", but of course they do have their own means of communication. : ) It would be awesome if someone figured out how to communicate with animals...

My Husband and I wonder the samething all the time, and we actually have the silly habit of talking for our animals then laughing at each other of course, but I do think they talk to each other in their own language...just wish I could understand it...lol

Remember animals communicate with body language much more often then they speak, do they mentally talk to each other I don't think they need to do that.
