One of the differences between humans and animals is our ability to speak. A number of scientists suggest that the only reason why our pets cannot master our language is a different structure of their mouth apparatus. However, with proper training, you can train your cat to speak the simplest human words.
Start raising your pet from infancy. An adult cat is extremely difficult to train, while babies are still able to readjust and accept your attempts to teach them certain tricks. Speech training is no exception. In addition, males are more amenable to training, cats are more capricious and independent, and their oral apparatus is not so flexible and is difficult to change.
Listen to your pet's natural language. Notice how he meows. Each cat expresses its feelings, emotions and desires in its own way. Putting all the richness of the cat's tongue in one "Meow", you are making a mistake, because in fact it is much richer and different for each individual. Look for "words" in your pet's meow that resemble something from our speech.
Start working with the found vocabulary units. Suppose a single sound the kitten makes reminds you of the word "meat". As soon as you hear it, repeat the word "meat" and praise your baby. Reinforcement is an important step in the work. Play the reverse game too: say the word "meat". If the kitten responds with the right sound, praise. It is extremely important to be observant in this step, because the sounds that cats make are usually associated with a specific situation. Pronounces the word "meat" directly at the moment who the appearance of the corresponding sound seems most likely. This will increase the likelihood of quick fixation of the lesson.
Do not expand the number of words until you have mastered one. Be consistent and patient. Only after making sure that the first lesson is thoroughly fixed, proceed to expanding your vocabulary. Do not forget about constant repetition.
Don't be overly demanding. You will not teach a cat to say the word "meat" the way we used to hear it. Remember how difficult it is to understand someone with an accent. Your pet will also pronounce "words" a little differently. And here it all depends only on your mood. If you believe that your cat can pronounce the word "meat", then you can hear it.
Be careful when displaying your pet's talents in front of guests. Make sure they are understanding people and do not expect miracles from the cat. All animals are extremely vulnerable and cannot stand being laughed at. If there are skeptics in the company who may simply burst out laughing when demonstrating your joint efforts with her, then it is better to refrain from public speaking and "talk" with the cat in private.
