Meow. I can tell. I have rather intelligent conversations with my cat, Mew, all the time.

No.

Animals sound different with languages like humans do.

Dogs in US and UK say BARK/WOOF, then explain why ones in Korea say meong (m-uh-ng), and how the french ones I saw definitely did not go woof.

I'm having a little trouble believing that... but I do know that individual animals have their own unique sounds. I'd need some more proof before I can believe that country of origin has anything to do with it though.

They meow, or if they're a kitten, they squeak.

Neither.
My cat says 'Moe'.
Then proceeds to slash open my bags of beef jerky.

They don't say "meow." It is a "mrow" sound. Sheesh people. Read the beginning posts of the thread.


And miyoun, I believe you are perceiving it that way. I have been all around the world, and all the dogs I have heard sound exactly the same. It all depends on the species of dog you have. Miniature Poodles make a "Yap" sound, West Highland Terriers make a "Woof" sound, Yorkies make an "Arf" sound. They make those sounds everywhere I have been.
