I just walked downstairs and my cat Googie meowed at me in the most forlorn way possible. I responded in a similar fashion, and we carried on about a minute of conversation. After that i looked him squarely in the eye and asked him if he was hungry, but he didn’t respond. I raised my voice as if talking to a foreign tourist and asked him again (actually believing he might understand me), but i just got a weak meow in return.
Was that supposed to mean he was hungry?
