miaow/meow/miaou?


How do Cats say "Miaow" ( ... or is it "Meow"? I'm never sure of the correct spelling) in your language?

I'ts "miau" in German/"Austrian" too. Officially, that is. Our cat Kiwi actually pronounces it more like "miiiiiiiiiiää!!!". (Maybe she's got foreign ancestors)

bull's (or cat's?) eye for μιάου :D have you a greek friend?
Our Foufou lately says only the "au" - I think she's losing her voice due to old age :3

I like mrkgnaow, which is how James Joyce describes a cat's miaow in Ulysses. Actually, it might be mrkgnao, but I like the w. It's not exactly miaow in another language, but could suit an Irish cat, maybe?

ps The word verification word I'm having to type here is mingbum! Very rude...

Love this - would be great to have a collection of international cats!

It inspired me to google 'animal sounds in foreign languages'... check out this amazing site http://www.lonympics.co.uk/AAAaC.htm

Yes, a French cat says MIAOU. A nickname for cats in French is Minou, which is ever so lovely!!!
