Understand what your cat is saying!

A new App, MeowTalk, uses your phone to listen to cats meows and turns them into simple English phrases such as “I’m in love” or more probably – given that it’s cats we’re talking about here – “feed me”, “I’m angry” and “leave me alone”, reports The Daily Star.

The developer says: “Each cat has their own unique vocabulary that they use to communicate with their owners consistently when in the same context. For example, a cat can have their own distinct meow for ‘food’ or for ‘let me out’. This is not necessarily a language, as cats do not share the same meows to communicate the same things with each other, but we can use Machine Learning to interpret an individual cat’s meows and translate that into a human readable language.”

MeowTalk is by no means perfect. Users point out that it depends on fine-tuning from the pet owner to adapt to each cat’s personal “language”.
