"Pet Voices" are a real thing...
Why do people use such funny and/or weird voices when talking to their pets?
I do it, I admit it. In fact, Selena asked me to talk to her like I was talking to my cat, Bulter, so I said (in a mushy baby talk type inflection): "How's my boy... My best friend, My little Butler Boy". "Oh My God" she yells, bursting into laughter!
She looked at me as if I had just made the strangest, most bizarre statement ever. "Oh please, like you don't talk to Fozzie the same way?!" I said in my defense. Shortly thereafter she too had to admit that she had a "Pet Voice" that she would employ when talking to her cat too.
I sincerely believe there is a "cat voice" that we cat owners talk in; it’s a different language that only we and other cat owners (and maybe the people that work at PetsMart) can understand.
So with that said I ask you pet owners: Do you use a “Pet Voice” when you speak to your pet? (secretly I already know the answer). Join us Monday morning at 8:15 and use it, and you may be rewarded with tickets to our Up Close And Personal show at the Montage Mountain Waterpark on the 26th .
Talk to you then!!!
