Yawns, Meows, and Chirps: Cats With Their Mouths Open

We love those screaming bois and girls! And even if they aren't screaming, we still love them. There's something so oddly cute about a cat that's yawning, meowing, or chirping when they see birds outside. We are obsessed with every notion the make, every sound they make, every breath they take! 

You get the picture. Let's give it up for these adorable kitties who have something to say! And others who just want to sleep. 

Oh, and do yourself a favor and turn that sound on.

A lyrebird is one the best songbirds in the world, they have the ability to mimic any sound and does so incredibly! When it comes to mimicking, the lyrebird is unmatched

And we know what you're thinking when watching this video, "what kind of alien war has this bird witnessed?" And it's an excellent question that we have no answer to. 

And that chainsaw impression? Incredible. The lyrebird is so good at imitating all the sounds that it's difficult to believe they weren't edited in! 

We constantly stunned by nature.

Creator of this super interesting and well-drawn graphics is freelance illustrator James Chapman. You can follow his Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook and/or Twitter to be kept up-to-date with these fanasinating graphics! Did you know, in English, we say dogs go "Woof," but in Romanian they go "Ham Ham?"

Just something to think about.

Cats don't come when we call them. That's a fact. But there is only one sound that acts like a magnet. Every time. No matter how busy or sleepy they are. We're pretty sure you can guess which sound is just impawssible to ignore.
