It may seem like a tall tail, but a new application suggests that the cat’s meow and purse can be translated into English.
The creators of Myotok say they can identify 13 meanings, including ‘feeding me’, ‘leave me’ and ‘I love’.
Designer Javier Sanchez – Amazon’s voice assistant who was an engineer at Alexa – eventually wants to create a smart collar that will instantly translate meow into human speech.

He said: ‘I think it’s very important now, because with all the social distances that happen, you have people locked up with a significant other at home – this cat.’
‘This will help them communicate with their cat or at least understand their cat’s purpose and make the most important connection.’
This app is already available in Google Play Store and Apple App Store, but is still being developed and will be replaced in the future.
So far, it has attracted mixed reviews.
One user said: I get the translation ‘I love’ 90 percent of the time. ‘
Another reviewer said: ‘It certainly looks promising.’

Cat behavior experts are also divided, with a warning that false alarms can give owners a ‘wrong impression’.
But author Anita Kelsey of ‘Let’s Talk About Cats’ said: ‘The application looks fun, and there’s no harm in having fun with your cat.
‘We can never turn a cat’s meow into human words. We need to have fun thinking about what they are saying from our own human perspective.
Vocabulary will expand as more sounds are submitted by cat owners.
