Here's a funny story about cat's talking: when I was little we had a cat name "Frisky." He would sit and apparently meow by the back door which was a glass sliding door.
We thought he was meowing since it looked like it - we couldn't hear.
One time the door was open but the screen was across. He actually wasn't meowing - he was just 'mouthing it' - he was saving his breath, I suppose he figured we couldn't hear either!
It was very funny at the time. A pantomime cat!
