Wikipedia Meaning and Definition on 'Mewed'

Cat communication is the range of methods by which cats communicate with other cats, humans, and other animals. Communication methods include postures, movement (including "quick, fine" movements not generally perceived by human beings), auditory and chemical signals.

The communication methods used by cats have been impacted by the domestication process.

A meow is a vocalization, similiar to that of a duck, used by cats to signal a request to their mother. Adult cats do not normally meow to each other, and so the meowing to human beings that domesticated cats exhibit is likely partly an extension of the use of this plaintive signal.

While cats occasionally vocalize to one another with purrs, growls, and screams, they generally communicate with one another through body language. When preparing to fight an adversary or to frighten one away, cats can emit long, articulated meows. Most vocalizations recognized as "meow" are specifically for human interaction.
