Does Your Human Talk Baby Talk to You?

Does Your Human Talk Baby Talk to You?

As you are all aware of, I just celebrated my 11th Gotcha Day. At the end of the post, I'll announce the winner of the little giveaway I had. I'm practically a senior cat. What I wanna know is why TW insists on talking baby talk to me. Have you ever heard me talk baby talk?

Does Your Human Talk Baby Talk to You?

Here's the dealio. Why do I have to go "beddie-bye-bye" just cos she's tired (and apparently a bit deranged)?

Does Your Human Talk Baby Talk to You?

Why can't I "eatsie my foo-foo" whenever I want rather than the three times a day she feeds me the "goodsie foo-foo"? And why is the "goodsie foo-foo" never anything I like? She never calls my FF tuna that. Not to mention I have to "playsie—no playsie?" on her time. (No, Woman, can't you see I'm in "beddie-bye-bye" now?) What kind of sick-o sings "Kitzi Kitzi koo koo" to her cat who she had originally named Kitzi? That woman has a screw loose—maybe more than one.

OK, now it's your turn. Does your human speak baby talk to you? Lemme hear some of those phrases cos I'm sure they're better than any TW can make up.

Concats to Katie Isabella and her mom Carole S. on winning the Colorado Catnip quilt of her choice. She picked a pretty one but they're all pretty. I dunno which one I'd choose.  This is the quilt she picked which will look gorgeous against her black and white floof.

MOL for you are practically a ... ( very tiny little texts )... cat

Me, I'm pretty save from ' baby talk ' because English is second language for mom so her baby talk is basic. And my dad doesn't do it because it could turn to be a weird version with male voice...tee...heh.

Concats to Miss Isabella

Ugh! Thank COD my human doesn't use that odd human patois to speak to me. Sparkle trained her well regarding that.

Yes, my mum talks baby talk with me. She calls me sweetie all the time and says things like "mummy's here" and she uses a squeaky high voice all the time when talking to me. The worst is, and I don't believe I'm admitting this, is when she says "shall I wipe your bum-bum?" after I've just pooped.

My Mom did something similar to baby talk but it was just a "special" voice she used when she'd talk to me - she didn't use baby words - just had a different voice from the one she NORMALLY had. Maybe it was her split personality (hahahahahaha). Anyway, concats to Katie for the quilt win - she picked a perfect one for her black and whiteness!

Love, Angel Sammy

No baby talk at our house.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

My Momma's niece used to say "titty tat!" As in, "It titty-tat, Aunt Kafrine! It titty-tat!" My Momma tried to call me a titty tat ONCE and she wasn't stupid enough to do it again. I'm a GROWN MALE CAT. I speak intelligent English. If she wants to make a fool of herself speaking nonsense ... I usually don't listen to a word she says anyway. I just hear "blah, blah, blah, blah, blah."

Well, Mommy does baby talk a little. We go night-night on blankies...but I guess that's not quite as bad as what you're dealing with! She does talk to me in a high pitch so I deal with that by screeching right back at her ;) --Mudpie

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Leo says: We don't get the baby talk so much, just occasionally. What we get is the squeaky voice thing. Momma says she heard that cats respond more to high pitched voices, so when she really wants us, she calls in high pitch. She does all me Weeo.. Is that considered baby talk??

Congrats to Katie!!! I don't talk baby talk to my cats , I don't even talk baby talk to my 15 month old great niece.

Robin Mudge said...

I'm guilty. I do baby talk Manna and Dexter a little bit. They don't seem to mind. I have made up words that I use only with them. They know what I mean. :) They are sweet enough to put up with all of the craziness that is me.

The mom has a habit of calling us "baby cat." Like we're still babies. Sheesh.

Congrats to Katie!

Happy Gotcha Day (a few days late). My assistant does talk baby talk - or not even sure it is baby talk, it's in a really high pitch voice, she calls Rosie "rosie posie" and she calls me "miss boo boo boobies." Totally humiliating.

meowmeowmans said...

Yeah, we get the baby talk sometimes. Silly humans!

Concats to Katie and her Mom!

There are no babies in this house but plenty of baby talk going on.

The Indulged Furries said...

I'm wondering if your mom's baby talking has gotten worse as she's gotten older.

Mom talks to me like a person and is fairly polite. She puts my food down and says "enjoy your breakfast". She even says "please" and "thank you" when she wants me to do things like get my claws trimmed or get off a counter. "Potty" and "blankie" is as close to baby talk as it gets for us. Oh, she does say "brushies" when she brings me to bed at night and wants to give me my night-time brushing.

Cathy Kennedy said...

Cathy Keisha, I'm visiting from 15andmewoing. It's nice meeting you. Now, I'm sure if I had a kitty I'd talk baby babble to her/him but not all the time. I can see the mere thought of 'baby talk' annoys you by the scowl you wear but realize this if your human pet speaks to you this way then he/she loves you lots! :) Have a purrrfect Friday!

Jean Neilson said...

First....a big congrats to Katie Isabella for winning the quilt. Nice going. We don't get baby talk here, Wait, there is the odd time when mom wants to make some cwappy food sound good that we get the TALK. Yes, I can hear her now...."I made this just for my wee furry girls....you'll love this yummy food." We won't like the food, I can tell by her voice.

Con-cats to the quilt winner! That's a great prize, and it's a wonderful way to celebrate your gotcha day! My cats would tell you I don't talk baby-talk to them often... In words anyway. I use a sing-song tone, but my words are definitely adult. (I'm weird, I suppose.)
