Interesting to know that Japanese cats say nyan nyan - how the hell did that happen? Saounds like an entirely different sound. Either that or somebody has translated it wrong...

The belief that onomatopoeic words are essentially the same in every language is a complete myth. The English meow (also found in most European languages) is simply a transliteration of the Egyptian word for cat (Egypt is the 'spiritual' home of the domestic cat). Korean cats go 'yaong', Kazakh cats go 'mïyawlaw', and Greek cats go Niaou. But that's nothing compared to the huge diversity of words for the sounds that dogs make. After all, we can't even fix on a single English word for it!

I am not a number. I am a ... no, wait!
