Headscratchers / Chi's Sweet Home

  • When the parakeet imitates Chi, is it meowing?
    • Precisely. If you listen carefully, you can hear the meowing underneath the speech the first few times (after this, it seems to be cut out for some reason). The implication is that Lucky is imitating cat-language well enough for Chi to understand.
    • This is made more clear in the manga where the bird is shown to be chirping, but the "cat subtitles" above repeat what Chi was saying to Lucky in the same way that Chi's own meows are translated.
