Just wondering if this is true for any other Kittens.

According to my parents, I spoke early, but what’s interesting is that I didn’t speak actual words. I said words I invented. Like, I called grapefruit “bick,” and pajamas a “tumshish.”

My parents thought it was cute, and let me think that they were real words. I didn’t figure it out until I was 9, that I was saying made-up words.

I was just wondering if anyone else spoke early, but preferred to speak in their own language.

  6. basicallykerry said: YES, definitely the case here!

    I actually started talking late, but when I did I was speaking small sentences. I don’t think they were made up but??
