Have you ever wondered what did the fox say? Well, of course, you have because that song will never fade from our memories. As much as we try...

Anyway, years after that song took over the world, we finally have the answer to that question and that answer is, "HEHEHEHEHEHEHHE." Foxes sound so hilariously squeaky! And as if they're constantly laughing, which maybe they are. If you were to blindfold us and place a chatting fox in front of us and a laughing hyena, we're not 100% confident we could tell the difference. 

SaveAFox is the world's largest fox rescue in the US! Their sanctuary allows foxes plent of safe so they can "feel wild." As SaveAFox describes it in your YouTube channel bio, "We rescue foxes from furfarms and take in pet surrenders. All these foxes were born in captivity and could never be released so it is our job to give them a happy life! And although we specialize in foxes we also rescue mink and other surrendered exotics.

Cats Discuss Their Recent Meal (Comic)

Food. We take pictures of it and upload them for all to see. What for? It's not like we'll revisit those images. Or maybe some do. However, we as humans always share with one another what we had to eat that day, and what we plan to eat later that day. We simply can't help talking about food! Why? Because food is amazing. Cats understand, cats absolutely love to eat. We understand that because a majority of us humans also love to eat. But cats really love to eat. 

If cats could share their most recently consumed meal with one another, how would that look? What would they say? Thanks to Israeli artist, Ilana Zeffren, we have the answer to these tantalizing questions below. 

And if you want more cat enjoyment, be sure to check out last week's installment: Deep thoughts cats have before they fall asleep.

Tumblr Thread: Teaching Dog To Speak Using Buttons With Recorded Words

Question to all pet owners out there: have you ever desperately wanted to understand what your pet is saying when they're talking to you? If your answer is yes, moderngargoyle on tumblr is about to explain why that's a really, really bad idea. 

This poor tumblr user has made the mistake of giving their dog buttons with recorded words to press on whenever it wants something, and it turns out... that the dog really liked food. Shocker. And though it may have been somewhat disappointing to moderngargoyle, not having gotten precisely what they wanted, for us, their mental breakdown over being woken up a million times in the middle of the night by the dog asking for food is heckin' hilarious.

This is new and fun! Former Amazon engineer, Javier Sanchez, who previously worked on Amazon's Alexa has now unveiled his latest project and it's all about cats! An app that translates your cat's meows -- MeowTalk. 

You'll be able to decipher your cat's meow based on tone, everything from "I'm hungry" to even "I'm in pain." 

Javier Sanchez who was working with Bellevue-based tech company Akvelon developed this app named MeowTalk. Sanchez tells King 5, "It's not a language. They don't share words or communicate with each other. Cats never meow at each other out in nature."

So, what was the inspiration being this app? Sanchez reveals he was initially intrigued by the NPR series, "The Secret Language of Cats," and thanks to previously working on Alexa, he was motivated to develop this new tool for cats. According to Sanchez and his team, there are about "nine intents that all cats have." 

The ultimate goal for this app is to someday become a collar with a voice response. While testing a prototype of this collar, Sanchez holds his own kitten and when the cat let out a meow, it translated to "I'm angry, leave me alone!"

Sounds pretty accurate to us! While the development of this app is still underway we definitely look forward to this fun, and perhaps knowledgeable, app!

When you have poor social skills but try to make friends anyway. This cockatoo just wants to fit into the cool cat crew that he's living with! Not only does the cockatoo meow at the cats, when one cat got too close, you can also hear the bird hiss at it. True feline language has been mastered by this smart birdie! If those cats were confused as to why this other weird-looking "cat" was meowing at them, that hiss would've solidified him being one of them. 

Good job, Sir Cockatoo, we are thoroughly impressed by your dedication to infiltrate the feline crew.

It's all cute and fun until that parakeet learns how to order seeds! This is Kiwi, the parakeet, who has activated Siri on an iPhone and actually engages in a full conversation with Siri! 

We're impressed. Not even humans can engage in a full conversation with Siri! Birds are interesting creatures. They're intelligent, they can talk (well, some can), and they make the absolute best memes! Lots of love and appreciation for Kiwi and all the birds out there! Except for seagulls, as usual.

Five Swearing Parrots Separated After Egging Each Other On

Uh-oh! Lincolnshire Wildlife Park had to separate five foul-mouthed parrots after they learned some colorful language and began to egg each other on to be offensive in from of visitors. 

The five parrots in trouble are named Billy, Eric, Tyson, Jade, and Elsie. Actually, the five sound like a pretty cool crew. Too cool for us to join though, however. All five parrots joined the Lincolnshire Wildlife Centre of 200 grey parrots back in August. CEO of the wildlife park, Steve Nichols told PA, "We saw it very quickly; we are quite used to parrots swearing but we've never had five at the same time. Most parrots clam up outside, but for some reason, these five relish it."

The swearing parrots have been separated into different locations of the park so they wouldn't encourage each other and set one another off. 

Steve Nichols also mentions that no one has actually complained about the swearing parrots, but many the decision to be cautious and wary of their young visitors.

Cats are already cute enough but a munchkin cat? Oh man, it's just cuteness to the 2nd power.

And a talkative munchkin kitten? Our hearts just exploded and proceeded to melt all over the floor. When you think of toughness, it's tough to enough a munchkin kitten. However, this lil kitkat has something to say and something to say now! We're trying our best to decode the meows and figure out what it's trying to tell us. 

Our number one theory is that it's saying, "I'm tiny and frustrated!" Which is true and would make sense. What do you think this kitten is saying? Wrong answers only.

An adorable and well-spoken parrot named Einstien wants to go into the kitchen to get some food. He also expresses his wants to go and get dressed, and requests a "sweet po," which is an abbreviation he uses for sweet potato. Then you can hear him imitate the sound of water before flying into the kitchen and when landing on the counter he says, "Sorry! Hi sweet, let's go!"

Wow! This is incredible!

This is something we see from parrots all the time, but a raven? We've never seen a talking raven before.... and we're a mix of pure amazement and curiosity. Ravens are famously very smart creatures and this just takes it to another level. 

Just amazing. 

According to the YouTube description, Fable talking isn't something new, "Most evenings, once the yard goes quiet, Fable likes to sit and chat to herself. It's her own quiet time to try out her words, play around with the intonation, and try new sounds out.  I really struggle to film her doing this as I can't leave a camera in the aviary or she will destroy it, and if I make it too obvious she will get suspicious and not chat. So I had a bit of a play with the camera and set it up where I know she prefers to sit, but out of reach! The video is hit and miss as she can go where she likes, but you can hear the audio clear as a bell."

Fable really is adorable, she's talking to herself the way a human child would.

Dog Learns To Talk Through Custom-Made Soundboard

Wait, what?! We've heard of parents teaching their infants sign language to communicate at an early age, but teaching a dog to talk? That's definitely something you don't see everyday. Or ever. 

Christina Hunger, a speech-language pathologist, has devised a soundboard to help her dog Stella literally tell her things. Things such as being too tired after playing and would like to take a nap, or instead of playing she would rather like to be eating, or even she'd like to go outside. 

Dogs, like all animals, are always trying to communicate with us humans in their own way but with Hunger's soundboard, Stella is quite literally getting her voice heard.
