What does this sentence mean?? xDDD
He means that cats would have imitated us, therefore meows were cat _language_ for "human".
Why does OP assume that cats imitate us though?
I don't have a source but I think I recall a trustful source saying cats meowing to humans is a distinctive way than cats meowing to each others.
Like you know that dumb voice you take while speaking to them? Kinda like that, but from them to you.
Oh, that's interesting. I also read somewhere that adult cats don't naturally meow at all. They only do so to their mother when they are still kittens, but learn to meow to humans as they grow up because then we give them food and pet them etc. I don't remember where I read this though.
Well your explanation could be the more complete version of mine. I learned about it like 10 years ago.
I heard somewhere at some point that cats try to mimic the sounds of human infants to get more attention and food from humans because it triggers that nurture instinct
Yes that's what that means, but it's phrased horribly.
They say meow for literally everything so you are not only stupid but also wrong
Were cats actually named after their meows in ancient Egypt or is that an assumption? Honestly curious.
The Egyptian word for cat is apparently 'Mau'. I'd certainly say it seems likely.
