Takara Co. of Japan will launch a device that translates cats’ meows into human speech in November after the smash-hit dog-language electronic interpreter Bowlingual, a spokesperson said on Wednesday.

Meowlingual shows “translations” of cat language on its liquid crystal display when held close to the animals, the spokesperson said.
The device will be priced at ¥8800 (US$75), less than the ¥14 800 dog owners pay for Bowlingual.

Bowlingual has sold 300 000 units in the six months to March 2003 since its launch last September, and would have sold more had supply kept pace with demand.
