Maybe you didn't know that the sounds animals make are written different ways in different languages? (See Derek Abbott's Animal Noise Page for a list.)

Anyway, I used to do a lot of traveling overseas. When I saw this mural of happy pets on the front of Creature Comforts Pet Resorts (2104 E. 13th St., at Olsen), I was thinking of (what turned out to be) the French spelling of the noise cats make, miaou... and then I thought of how a cat might say "mural". Once I got home, I found out that cats in the US say meow instead, but I decided to go ahead with that wacky French/English title for this post. Whatever...

(Hey, it's not easy to come up with titles for a hundred different murals! :)
