Here Kitty, kitty, kitty
Cat Diary Human Translator
'HERE KITTY, KITTY, KITTY...'
Means humans want to take you somewhere, most likely the Vet. Avoid it.
'I HAVE SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR YOU!'
Probably left over human food they were about to throw out.
'HERE'S SOME KITTY TREATS...'
Most likely another foil wrapped appeals-to-a-human Madison Avenue concoction.
Real kitty treats are usually opportunities when no one's paying attention and you get to lick the ice cream in the bowl, or jump on the table for that great piece of meat loaf.
'YOU ARE SOOOOOO CUTE!'
You are about to rub noses with a human. They can never get enough of our tiny fur-coated bodies and irresistible faces. Human noses are sooo warm. Ugh.
'YOU'RE IN MY CHAIR!' or 'YOU'RE TAKING UP TOO MUCH OF THE BED!'
You picked the right spot. You are right where you should be.
'DARN CAT HAIR!'
You left your hair out in the open where humans can see it and properly clean it up. Good job.
Means you were caught. Remember exactly where you were and get back to it -- once they leave the house.
'GET OUT OF HERE!'
Do not take this personally. It's usually the first thing they say after you wake them up by sticking your backside in their face.
SNAPPING OF FINGERS:
They want you to come over. If they want me, they'll come get me. Otherwise, get a dog.
'I LOVE YOU...'
Means just that. No translation needed here. And we love you, too.
