has dozens of different meows, and one of them sounds almost like "Yeah." Sort of a Mmyeah sound.
It makes for fun conversations with him sometimes, usually when it's time for food and he's working hard to get me to get up and open a can.
"Are you a hungry boy?"
"Do you want me to feed you?"
Tonight he started in on me early, about 45 minutes before snack time. It was non-stop whining, and I did my best to tune him out, not even acknowledge him, lest I encourage him to jack up the volume.
At about 9:55, five minutes before snack, he jumped up onto the back of my chair and stretched out...and finally shut up.
At 9:59 I told him it was time for snack, but he sure as hell had been awfully bitchy about it. And then I asked, "Are you a little bitch?"
At least he's honest. I kind of had to feed him after that.
