Kittens recognize their own mother’s voice.

Kittens! Who doesn’t love kittens? (Um, nobody!) But who do kittens love? Well, if they are anything like human babies, they love their mommies. And this study indicates that they recognize their mother’s calls and can even distinguish them from the calls of other mommy cats. The researchers conclude that kittens learn their mother’s meows and chirps in the nest, and that these vocalizations represent a specialized form of communication. Forget baby talk–give me kitten talk any day!
