I was a young kitten when I first started travelling. Slipped into a suitcase and away we went!  I learn bits and pieces of many languages. It always helps to be able to say ‘please, thank you, and excuse me’ wherever I traveled.  Very few people learn Meow properly.  In Chinese, it is “miao”, in French, they say “miaou”. In Bosnia they pronounce it “mijau”, but the Ukranians say ” myau”. My human’s niece was fond of “deedle eadle” when she was a baby.  I didn’t answer to that, ever!
