Does your cat’s performance of breakfast acatpella wake you before your alarm goes off? You’re not alone. The human struggle is real!
There are not many things us cats do together as a team. Of course, there’s synchronized sleeping and grooming, but those things are largely accidental and form part of the random humdrum existence of cat life. But there is an activity that unites us all towards a common goal, and that is performing our morning song to be fed our breakfast on time. If you have never heard of ‘A-cat-pella’ before, you have never lived in a multi-cat household. This is the moment when we set aside our differences with the dawning of each new day and unite as “team cat”, performing our morning song with unrivaled purpose and vigor. Our harmonies are sweet, yet tinged with an urgency that screams “hear the cry of our starving clan”.
There is nothing random about our harmony. Every single note contributes to the melody and our team performance yields sweet results each morning. Our humans scurry around in the kitchen preparing us breakfast in record time. It is vitally important that we continue this morning ‘Acatpella’ tradition because it is the only way we can communicate the crying growling hunger pangs in our bellies to the humans. They are largely vocal in their communication to each other so we figured that this is a great way for our voices to be heard, literally. Us cats have a myriad of varied vocalizations, which mean different things and you can read more about this at Catster. We can yowl, chirp, chatter, chirrup, coo, burble and croak, to name but a few. But all our morning Acatpella is made up of a series of complex meowing sounds that we have composed for the utmost impact.
5 Ways to recognize breakfast Acatpella
- Our meows are urgent, high-pitched and sound like we will surely die if not attended to right away.
- We weave our figure-8 dance between your still sleepy legs while you almost trip over us. But you must understand, this is only intended to make you more alert and attentive to your most important task at hand: preparing our meal. You are dedicated to us, no?
- We sound like we have been starving and neglected for a month and put you on a guilt trip so that you serve us quicker.
- We will combine all of our sounds to amplify the overall effect. We could combine a chirp with a yowl, a coo with a burble and so on. We have been testing this on humans since we first domesticated ourselves and we use whichever sound gets the desired result.
- Some of us might jump on the counter and sing there in the hopes that you will hear us better. We’re unsure about how fast sounds travels through the air but it won’t hurt to try and sing right inside your ears! Do you even hear our song? We wonder sometimes.
