Cat's meow Vocal communication involves caterwauls for mating, chattering upon spotting prey, hissing to ward off an intruder, or shrieking when hurt or terrified. Meowing is not part of this language. Meow-ese, it would seem, is a language developed exclusively for humans.

How fascinating! The article goes on to discuss research into this inter-species communication, and how cat owners are better at understanding the emotion being conveyed by a particular caterwaul.

Very interesting, even if completely obvious when you think about it.
