I think the Google Cat Assistant must have several cats penned up. This morning Lynettea said, 'meow' to it and it produced a bit of meowtalk in rather disjointed phrases. It sounded as if the cats had been woken up from a nap and were disoriented.
She said, 'meow again, please!'
Why say, 'please', I thought, to a machine?
This time it produce a purring noise. At least one of the cats is happy, I thought.
But the third time she asked it to meow, it made a loud angry screech of a meow.
'Go away!' The kitty was saying. I leapt back.
Lynettea now had the sounds channeled through a speaker, so it was loud.
'Let's play a game instead,' she said.
I stared at the speaker. It is too small to have cats inside. So where are they?
