In probably the greatest advertisement ever for the Human-to-Cat Translator app, a YouTube video shows a woman using the app to speak with a cat. The cat emerges from under a coffee table, and slowly approaches the woman as meowing sounds come from her smartphone. The cat places one paw menacingly on the woman's knee before finally cat slapping the woman and hissing.

The Human-to-Cat Translator app video entitled "What happens when you smack talk a cat", apparently shows that the app works. Cats are notorious for ignoring their owners, but maybe you just need to speak in their language. The Human-to-Cat Translator app by Electric French Fries is available for free on iOS and Android devices.


The Human-to-Cat Translator app features over 175 samples from more than 25 cats, according to the description on the App Store and Google Play. The app supposedly performs audio analysis on your voice and translates your speech into meows. The app also includes 8 cat calls (different kinds of meowing, bird sounds, mouse sounds, purring, and angry cat noise) to get your cat's attention.

The Human-to-Cat Translator app's description warns that cats and other pets often respond to the sounds produced by this app. If your pet displays signs of distress or aggression (such as the cat in the video, perhaps), discontinue use immediately. The app also supposedly supports all human languages - except Swahili.

No word on what the woman in the video said into the Human-to-Cat translator app to make the cat so angry. But a more pleasant tone might elicit a difference response from a cat. While the app clearly has the ability to drive a cat crazy, constant use around humans is sure to draw a similar result as well.

Any guesses why the cat was so offended in the Human-to-Cat app video? Let us know in the comments.
