Languages and Cats

Cats from many different countries visit my blog. Lynettea was concerned that when I had cat visitors to my birthday party, they might not be able to understand one another.
I was surprised at this. She has a lot of difficulty understanding me and cannot understand the language of humans from other countries (except for a few).
On the other hand, cats from anywhere can understand one another. You don't find a Chinese kitty unable to communicate with a  French kitty, or a kitty from USA being unable to understand a kitty from Russia, or Germany. Humans could learn a lot from us if they wanted to.

These are my top ten countries of all time for visitors (in order of numbers):

United States
Germany
Australia
Russia
China
France
United Kingdom
Ukraine
United Arab Emirates
Netherlands
We used to see little neko visiting us from Japan, but not as frequently now. Most of the visitors do not show in the program, as you can only see ten countries.
We had 100 kitties from Singapore this month. It was nice to see them. And 28 from Canada, what a contrast: one lot from the steamy tropics and the other probably snowbound. We don't know if it was 100 kitties or fewer kitties who came more often. They are all very welcome and we love to see them.
Purr. Purr. Purr.
Lynettea wrote down a list for Diamond of all the countries of the kitties, but she tidied it somewhere and it is lost. There were more than 70 countries and she had to look some of them up on the Internet, as she hadn't heard of them.

The Internet is a wonderful place for us all to join together in peace and harmony.

We kitties are a far more peaceful group than humans are. That is a fact.

We like to see where our visitors are coming from too - it's cool too see how we're pals wif kitties all over da world.

Pawsome that you had so many world wide guests at your birthday party :)
True, we kitties understand each other so well :)
HUmans should concentrate on their similarities rather than their differences.
Your party was a great time!

People can learn a lot from cats. Mine have learned to live in harmony, thank goodness!
People who can't understand 78m,--itt (that part was typed by Rufus the Red) the language can enjoy the beauty of our pictures.

Yes, the international language of cats certainly is universal and wonderful. :)

That's so cool that you have visitors from all around the globe, Sasha!

Kittehs totally understand each other. Cat is a universal language.

If we kitties ruled the world, it would be a much happier place. We don't go making wars all the time for one thing, or hating other kitties just because they are a different colour or from a different country or worship the Great Cat in the Sky in a different way!

PeeEss. Mummy tries to speak Cat effurry now and then. It's really funny. You wouldn't think it would be possible to mispronounce "miaou", would you? But She manages to do so...
