Australia's first cat translator is here

HAVE you ever wondered what your cat is trying to tell you?

If only you knew what every meow and hiss meant, you could understand your cat like never before.

Australia's first ever cat translator has been developed by Lucky Lotteries, with 100 of the devices available to be won.

Lucky Lotteries spokesperson Elissa Lewis said the Lucky Translator is the latest feline science technology and offers Australian cat owners the chance to connect with their cats like never before.

"The translations have been developed in conjunction with animal psychologists and cat linguists and uses audio profiling and basic language descriptions which are triggered by different combinations of frequency, volume and duration of a cat's sound.

"The translator is programmed with eight different phrases based on cat's basic needs which will allow you to gain an understanding of what your beloved cat may be saying with each and every meow.

"For example a mid-length meow means your cute kitten could be thinking, 'Okay, here's the deal. You feed me now, I'll love you forever'."

For your chance to win, upload a photo of your feline friend on LuckyTranslator.com.au with a description of what you think they're thinking and feeling.
