While you are slightly more varied in your communications than April (she who uses "MEEEEEeeeeeeeee!" for pretty well everything she wants to express that isn't covered by purring), I would appreciate it if you could put some extra effort into distinguishing your various utterances from each other. At the moment, you seem to use "nnnngmmmr?" for:
- "I'm hungry"
- "I'm thirsty"
- "I'm sad"
- "I'm bored"
- "I want pettins"
- "I want to play fetch with this crocheted thing that I totally did not steal out of your project bag"
- "I want attention and am about to break something in order to get it"
- "April dropped a stinker in my kitty litter and I want to use it so you need to clean it out now"
and, on one memorable occasion,
- "Hey, mum? I found a new toy and am now carrying it around in my mouth! It's a live venomous spider. I want to show it to you before I eat it. Please hold still while I drop it on your bare foot."
A little more attention to this matter will mean I can answer your needs more quickly and don't have to work my way through each option in turn. It will also reduce the number of incidents where I eventually resort to asking you "What is it you want, girl? Is Timmy down the well? Is that it?!" while you look at me like I'm an idiot.
On a related note, please assign a meaning to your latest new noise. You know, the one you start making when you're at the other end of the house and then continue making while you wander slowly in my general direction, resulting in a loud echoing "nnnGOW! nnnGOW! nnnGOW!" coming down the hallway like the march of doom. I respectfully suggest you assign it to an urgent meaning, as boy howdy is that an attention-getter in the middle of the night.
(Maybe use that one for the spiders.)
