Now this one is interesting and quite hilarious! This black cat we found on YouTube did a surprisingly good job copy-catting her dog friend’s bark. The cat was seen by its owner while barking at something from her place at the window. It is a very realistic kind of bark that if you close your eyes, you will think that it is coming from a real dog. Now this is quite mysterious, isn’t it?



According to veterinary experts, barking cats are not unheard of, though the behavior is pretty unusual. As far as we are concerned, cats are supposed to meow. But do cats know that? No, they don’t. They don’t know that they are not supposed to bark or that barking is a dog thing. Since the cat’s body structure is almost similar, in a smaller way, to a dog’s, it seems theoretically possible that your feline friend can produce a noise that is almost similar to her man’s-best-friend neighbor.

According to Nicholas Dodman, a veterinary behaviorist and professor at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, barks result from a sudden rush of air through the air passage, and can actually be produced by an overly excited cat. “It’s kind of a forced meow.” So it’s like they cough out their meow or something. LOL.



Some websites say that barking cats may have learned their “barking skills” from a dog friend they are living with. Others say that cats produce different sounds to lure their prey. They can produce chirping noise, growling, squawking, and many others when they see a potential prey. I’m not sure if that reason is applicable to barking cats. I mean, since when did cats hunt for dogs to eat?

Anyway, one thing is for sure: Cats barking is officially not a myth. Here is the video that proves it:

Enjoy! 🙂
