A team of researchers in Lund’s University, in Sweden, wants to learn more on interspecies communication
The project will study melodic details and vocal variables in humans when addressing their pets, but also the differences in cat’s meowing when they are in the presence of humans. It is quite probable that the results of such research will have a considerable impact not only in the way we understand our fellow house pets, but also how we treat and train therapy animals for those who need them as part of their treatment, in health facilities or their own homes.
