I have a 10 year old human male named Izzy and sometimes he won't shut up either!
Our tom cat Rogue is the biggest bully on Earth. He greets you as you get out of the car from 3 houses down yelling at you running to the door an does not stop yelling until you handle his demands. Groceries in hand, he doesn't care, he must have milk now, or fresh food now(like he forgets he got fresh food an hour ago), even if it's just you acting like you are feeding him again(which works). He doesn't care, as long as you are doing something for him.
They say dogs have masters, cat's have pets.

Cats don't meow to each other very often unless still a kitten, it's a thing they learned by being domesticated to people. Cats are one of the only self domesticated animals present in our society.
Think on it for a bit...how long does it take a 4-5 year old person to begin understanding language? And if they were to only learn things useful to their world view ... due to whatever. Same thing.
My animals are very familiar, we chat all the time.
My wife and I refer to them as fur babies.
