    So, my roommate's cat likes to bark. In fact, I don't think he knows how to meow. Anyone know why this is or know of any other animals like that?

    As long as the cat is not talking to you, you should be alright. If you are being commanded to kill by a demon who possesses your roomate's cat, then seek professional help.

    First, I'm not trying to kill the cat.

    Second, I'm not high.

    Third, the cat really does bark like a dog.

    I'm high right now and my cat isn't barking.

    Seriously though, different cats do different things. Some cats grumble, some chirp, some do nothing. Yours barks. Tell the cat that you're ok with it and that it's an ok cat, and that everything is ok. Maybe it'll bark in agreement or whatever. But whatever happens, don't worry. It's OK.

    Clearly the cat in question is a talented impressionist – there could be money to be made here.

    Tell your friend you'll happily be his pet's manager, for a suitable percentage of his earnings of course. Then get him on the telly. Here we have reality TV shows that lap this sort of thing up, I'm sure the States is little different in this regard.

    The cat is trying to lull you into a false sense of security. It wants you to think it's a dog, man's best friend. Once you completely accept it the cat will kill you. Run now.

    It'll probably crap all over the kitchen first. That's what the cat that lives in our house did this morning.

    Bloody cats.

    Wonder who the prey is? :eek:

    Not even going to touch Jaffa's comment about crapping in the kitchen. :p

    LMAO. On a side note, I've been known to howl at the moon on occasion. Come to think of it, on those occasions I might have heard a cat bark as well.

    I like the complete lack of ownership implicit in this statement.

    I believe that's because the cat belongs to the delightful Mrs Cake, not Mr Jaffa Cake.

    As I figured. Still, "the cat that lives in our house" is quite distinct from "our cat" or even "her cat."

    i believe the correct description/association is a cat and his/her food provider.

    I always thought it was 1) cat and 2) people that are allowed to exist.

    In reality it's cat and whomever cleans the litter box. That's love.
