Ciara Doesn’t Meow

Ciara doesn’t meow.  Like at all.  A few times, she’s opened her mouth and looked like she was trying to meow, but nothing came out.  Maybe a little trill.  Sometimes I hear a sound like a dove.  But no meow.  So what does that mean?

She was feral, living in a colony of cats in an auto-wrecker yard.  I read online that stray cats teach their kittens to be silent and not meow as to not draw attention to themselves, but I don’t know if that’s true.  I guess they could just be like humans, some are loud, some are quiet.

Sookie meows, but only when he’s mad, like ‘Let me in!’ or ‘Put me down!’.  And they both snore!  Maybe Ciara learned that from lazy Sookie.

Maybe when Ciara feels more comfortable, she’ll start talking more…

    Maybe Ciara doesn’t know how and you should teach her? On the other hand …
