Hi there folks,
Alberto here. Today’s letter is “Y” and that stands for “Yowl”. Please pull up a seat and allow me to explain this word from a feline point of view. As all of the Tribe has some Siamese in us, we do have a tendency to talk but we object to the word yowl.
Yowl means “a loud wailing cry, especially one of pain or distress.” When you humans use this word to describe every sound we make we are offended. Sometimes (usually in the wee hours of the morning) we like to stand outside your bedroom door and sing the song of our people. This is singing not yowling.
Sometimes we just want to get your attention or have a short little chat, this is talking, not yowling.
Felines yowl when they are in dire circumstances. If your felines are communicating with you vocally, please use the proper adjective and do not state that we are yowling.
This public service announcement has been brought to you by The Tribe of Five on behalf of the felines of the world.
