No Basenji's do not bark! That is a dog!  They make a small whimpering sound but no barking!

This is a Basenji:

I believe some breeds of cat are mute.

I suspect that there are inddividual dogs that don't bark.... and cats that don't mieow, but mostly (except the Basenji) do. We had a Gordon Setter for many years and she never once barked. The most she ever did was a sort of strangled yelp and that was very very rare, but others of that breed bark quite normally.

Indeed, the Basenji is the only breed of barkless dog.

Yes, they do. Even the hyena sort-of barks (although it's more like a falsetto asthmatic cough)

Got'cha

Hyena's are neither dogs or cats - they are not only in a separate family but a separate sub-order  of animals - Suborder: Feliformia, Family: Hyaenidae

Dogs are in the Family Canidae and cats in the Family Felida.

Can you point to where I said the hyena is a dog?

I'm going to bang your heads together, really boys.

Some cats trill, which is a higher type of cat vocabulary. My cat imitates the intonation of what we say and when she comes in says Hello. She can also say milk. She has definite non-meow sounds that she repeats when she wants to do something. She asks to come onto the chair with a two tonal trill.
She hates me when I sing operatically because to her I am caterwauling to a mate. People have written books on what is quite a complex language considering the few sounds they can make.

Dead cats and dogs are generally quiet.

I suppose she can recite the soliloquy from Hamlet too  ::)

No but she sometimes sits on the bird table and quacks like a Duck. Some people have mistaken this for Shakespear.

Some people have mistaken Shakespear for Shakespeare, the famous poet and playwright.

And surely, bird tables should be constructed in such a manner as to offer our little feathered friends the opportunity to dine without risk of being assailed by goddam cats!

Goddam is a valid slang contraction of God damned, not God damn.

Just as well. He'd have been a bit smelly by then!

lions don't meow.


do you think so animals just don't make their associated noise because they can't be bothered or they are shy?
Sometime I don't want to talk either... although these days all I seem to say is "J no!"

Ah, some decorum and from an Australian too. Doctor Beaver you just don't know how to treat a lady. By the way there is a cat that says Hello on utube. If I can be bothered I will look it up for you, but only if you're nice.

"Nice" and "Doctor Beaver" should never be juxtaposed. The same is true of "decorum" and "Australian"  [:(!]
