Sometimes our cats will start meowing, and frequently we meow back at them, typically in exactly the same tone. From their perspective, is this what's actually happening?

Cat: I'm hungry.
Human: I'm hungry.
Cat: Let's get some food.
Human: Let's get some food.
Cat: Why aren't you doing anything?
Human: Why aren't you doing anything?
Cat: Damn it, stop mocking me!
Human: Damn it, stop mocking me!
Cat: You suck.
Human: You suck.

The problem also is that I'm sure we don't get the tones quite right, so for the cats it's like:

Cat: I'm hungry.
Human: Waffles!
Cat: Let's get some food.
Human: Hugs!
Cat: Are you crazy or just stupid?
Human: Stupid!
Cat: Myabe if I rub up against you you'll understand my displeasure.
Human: *picks up cat*
Cat: Gah why are you attacking me?! Escape, escape! Halp!
Human: Waffles!
