    貓. It's "maau" in Cantonese Chinese jyutping and "mao" in Mandarin Chinese pinyin.

    In ancient Egyptian it's miw.

    Incidentally, both the Chinese and Egyptian meow sounds also meant the word for cat.

    i wonder that all the time it makes me think even more when my little terrier cocks his head to one side then barks again at me barking to his initial bark haha birds too - my cockatiels always seem to imitate me imitating them... honestly i think they are just mocking me though; the sly creatures that they are :) i'm still waiting on an actual working animal translator oh the fun that could be had :D

    In Italian cats say "Miao".

    In Icelandic cats say "Mjàlm" (read me-ow-lm)!
