About animals and language; I remember reading something a long long time ago (when pterodactyls flew over Hyde Park): a vet in Soho was able to recognise that a cat belonged to an Italian family because of the way it said meow! He then went on to say that all cats meowed in the accents of their owners.
I know my sister trained a friend's dog when she was about 17, in French, and that dog would only ever respond to French after that
