Cat owners know all too well that their furry companions can make a large variety of sounds. They can chatter when they see potential prey like birds or rats, they can let out a bloodcurdling scream when they’re preparing to fight one another, or they can meow sweetly (and demandingly) at their owners.

Interestingly, the first two sounds listed are common noises that cats utter to one another, but the last sound, meowing, isn’t something that cats often use when communicating with each other.

In order to look into why cats meow (or as the British spell it, miaow) and other feline-related curiosities, BBC Earth produced a program called “Cats Uncovered.”

BBC Earth compiles incredible shows about nature including domestic animals. Like their YouTube page states, “The world is an amazing place full of stories, beauty, and natural wonder.” Once you start clicking on their videos, it’s difficult to stop.

If you find yourself intrigued by this cat video, check out “How Do Cats Use Their Whiskers?” as well. It even features a slow-motion play session that is equally cute and fascinating. Be careful; these videos can become addicting.
