My youngest granddaughter Maia, named my kitty "Meow" when she was playing with her as 'that was the sound she made’. Meow was leash trained and I would take her for walks in the park and when I got strange looks from people I would just shrug and say
‘she thinks she’s a dog’. The brat wouldn’t answer to anything else so I am stuck with calling "Meow" and feeling silly when she is outside! She is a diva and I am her trained pet.
