Miaul

To miaul is to cry like a cat, or to mew. I have no idea, other than the spelling, how it differes from miaow. Do you know?

Bagpuss doesn't miaul, he snores.

I've heard a cat snore before. It was a really fat cat.

Bagpuss is fairly well padded.

I've seen it written that way here, too.

I quite like that word although I accept it sounds no different to a miaow!

Meowing is familiar to me, but then I love all mews of a kitten. :-)

Interesting. Makes me wonder where this one came from.

I like their funny spikey looking tails best.
