It was developed by the Mars’ Temptations Lab. and what this collar does is to transform a cat’s meows into a human voice; that is into a language spoken by the cat’s owner.

This is usually in form of commands or requests as reported by the Such requests may be of the need to be fed, to be let out of the house, or merely wanting a stroke from the human owner. If this isn’t language development then what is it?
