  Gato y Perro. Cat and Dog.
by carolinaEspada

My neighbour is from the U.S. and he was having problems calling a cat at the basement. I herd him saying: "come kitty kitty kitty, come kitty...". And I said to him: that cat will never come up to you, you have to call him in Spanish: "misu-misu-misu-misu" (mee-su)... and the cat -el gato- inmediately came when he was called in Spanish.

Is awfully funny what animals talk in Spanish.
Cats: miau
Dogs: guau-guau (always two guaus)
Cows: mu
roosters: kiquiriqui (kee-kee-ree-kee)
donkeys: jij? (hee-ho)
baby chickens: pio-pio-pio (pee-oh, always 3 in a row)

Many animals are willing to undestand English and other languages. Dogs, for example. Cats no. They are difficult in every language. Everywhere.
