  • If you brought in a cat or kitten and added a button "cat", you'd never hear another word from beautiful Billi.

  • When I first started watching this channel I thought Billi just presses random buttons.... but the more videos I watch the more certain I become that she knows what she is saying. She's the smartest kitty ever ❤️

    • @Marlene Mayr Not really! If I had to start over I'd start with "pets" instead of "food", and get the FluentPet buttons right away (switching was really difficult). Otherwise everything seems to be going pretty well!

  • I'm hoping a talented 2D artist will submit a short animation of Billi pressing a button that says "Subscribe", then flicks her tail a bit, and then presses "mad" x3, that Mom can use as outro. I would do it pro bono (it's also great for exposure, artist can just link to a Billi video and say "I made that outro" 😸), but unfortunately I'm not good enough. 😿

  • I had a cat a long time ago, and I was looking for the remote control and said out loud "where did the remote go?" I wasn't asking him, just talking to myself. He looked at me, then started digging between the couch cushions and voila! Remote! I think cats and dogs know more words than we think.

  • Instead of tossing mousey up into the air, beyond her eye view, try rolling it along the floor like you would a bowling ball, imitating a mouse as it would scamper across the floor. Cats are hunters. They stalk. The motionlessness of a toy is as important as its movements.

  • 36 words is already super impressive but I wonder if there's a limit to how many they can memorise or if teaching them since they're kittens make a difference. Maybe in a few years most cats will talk this way and think that meow is such an archaic word 🐈

  • I'm wondering, if you would put the basket on its side (so open side facing her), and put all the toys back the same way, after she used them, do you think she could learn to put them back in the basket(or several, in the places where she'd usually leave them, like putting a laundry bag right next to where the pile of clothes heaps up) herself ? That way she would both be able to access them at will, and it would not be all over the place

  • Do you think she pressed "mousey" twice because you got out two mouseys? My brother used to count that way as a baby; if you put three apples in front of him, he would say "app, app, app." Might be worth investigating!

    Levia BarisolLevia BarisolVor 18 Tage
  • Someone who’s good at math and loves this channel, Billi, and her Mom, should figure out both the ratio and the odds. The ratio of in how many of the videos does Billi push a button/s that corresponds to what’s going on, being discussed, or when what she’s saying makes sense to what she appears to want or be doing at the time. And then from there figure out the odds of that vs. a cat just pushing random buttons to “get a rewarded and make her owner happy,” but somehow always magically making sense. That way we can present the numbers to all the jaded nonbelievers when we run across them and feel the need to defend Billi and her Mom’s honor. I happen to be another one of those educated people who are nonetheless absolutely hopeless at maths. I know I probably explained it all wrong, not having a clue about what numbers would actually be needed to do something like that. A length of time is probably also needed? But I think you all will still get my meaning. I just makes me so annoyed, kinda sad, and a little mad, when people who have only seen at best a couple videos, but decide that it’s a hoax. Or just a coincidence. Without even trying to have an open mind, or to give cats and dogs some much deserved credit for being not only very smart, but also very capable and thoughtful creatures. And even if they believe them to be smart, a lot of them seem to reject the fact that most animals have complex emotions just like we do. And I know I’m probably asking too much of someone. Based on watching Billi communicate everyday because of all the hard work they are doing, I know the numbers will be amazing and off the charts. And I would love to be able to throw them in the haters faces! 😹
