As a cat owner, this writer has wished many times that her beloved cat Woody could talk, if only to explain a lot of his
idiosyncracies. If you’re a cat owner, you’ve no doubt wished the same. Well, the folks at Takara Tomy are having fun with the concept by introducing the Meowlingual Cat Translation Device.
