do you have a pet?
do you talk to your pet in a special voice?
we do. the cat voice.
this is our cat. the queen. the princess. the baby. the angel. her name is angel. but we call her lots of other things. she will COMPLETLEY ignore us if we talk to her in a normal voice, but will WAKE UP if she hears the cat voice. she knows we are talking to her... (we've had her 10 years)
Last weekend we watched some old baby videos of the kids, and my kids said, "hey mom, you are talking to us in the cat voice". I said, well we didn't have the cat then, and that was my "baby voice" for you two. "you invented that voice for us?" yep. And now we all use it on the cat. I think everybody has a special way of talking to the ones they love, don't you?
