Introducing The Meowlingual To Go With Your Bowlingual

from the sounds-perfectly-useless dept

I’ve discovered that it’s usually pretty easy to tell what a dog or a cat wants, but some people are still having trouble figuring it out. In the past year, we’ve had a number of stories (usually poking fun) about the “bowlingual”, a device for translating a dog’s barking into what he or she means (in theory, of course). Apparently, there are plenty of people who can’t understand what some panting and an occasional wag of the tail means, because sales were strong on the device. Even though we also discovered reasons why cats may not need such a device, that didn’t stop the company that makes the Bowlingual (the fact that dogs don’t need the device didn’t stop them either, so it shouldn’t be much of a surprise). They’re now introducing the meowlingual to go along with the bowlingual, so more pet owners can get suckered.
