App claims to translate cats’ meows & can apparently tell if your pet hates you

Concerned your cat dislikes you? Are you worried your bundle of fluff is actually trying to bump you off?

The developers of Alexa claims to have created a new app that can translate your cat’s miaow.

The boffins behind the new pet tool say they can articulate just how much your cat despises your presence – and if it's hungry.

MeowTalk claims to turn feline purrs and meows into English.

It is based on the assumption that cats have nine specific “intents” that they are trying to put over the best they can.

For years, fears have grown among cat owners that their fur babies are actually plotting their downfall.

Soon we could know more about their ambitions, or at least their mood. Or if they just want more food.

There are 13 phrases in the app’s vocabulary including: 'Feed me', 'I’m angry' and 'Leave me alone'.

Javier Sanchez, group technical program manager at app developer Akvelon, says this could be a rather handy tool.

“I think this is especially important now because, with all the social distancing that's happening, you have people that are confined at home with a significant other – a feline,” he said.

“This will enable them to communicate with their cat, or at least understand their cat's intent, and build a very important connection.”

Each cat’s meow is apparently unique – and tailored to its owner's attention levels.

Instead of a generic database for cat sounds, the app's translation differs with each individual profile.

The app is available free on both Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store.

It's unclear yet if there's a need for one for dogs – known to be a much more easy-to-read animal.
