Here's how to speak to your cat in Japanese. Or perhaps here is how to sound like a Japanese cat. Either way, dogs bark and rabbits ribbit a bit differently in Japanese.
NOTE : to the Japanese, wan and ONE (the number 1) are the same pronunciation. There is a chain of steak houses in Japan called "SUTEKI WAN" (Steak One). Its mascot is a dog.
NOTE : One way to remember ushi is to think of it sounding like oishi (delicious). But be careful with your pronunciation. I had a friend a few years back who, at the restaurant Mister Donuts, pointed to her donut and said to an astonished Japanese waitress, “KORE WA USHI DESU! USHI DESU!” [This is a cow! this is a cow, I tell ya!]
NOTE : Japanese crows are huge! “Scarecrow” in Japanese is kakashi.
NOTE : Japanese distinguishes between the white ducks (ahiru) and the other colored ducks (kamo). Despite their different names they still speak the same GA- GA- language.
