Cat owners: Have you ever wondered what your cat is trying to tell you when they meow at you?

Good news! The new app MeowTalk translates your cat's meows and sounds to let you know how they're feeling.

The project comes from former Amazon engineer, Javier Sanchez, who worked on Alexa.

According to the New York Post:

"Sanchez and his team concluded through research that cats, along with nine lives, have nine basic intentions — including “I’m hungry,” “I’m happy” and “I’m in pain” — that are included in the app."

While the app is cool, they're working on a collar that will be able to translate with a vocal response.
