Cat Mimicking Owner

All right... so one night Jorge at random looked up cats on Wikipedia and started reading about them. After which he decided he wanted to cuddle with Callie. They're bonding very well.

One interesting fact we read was that cats can mimick their owners behaviors (cuddling during tv time or using the litter box before bed or immediately in the morning)... it also said cats may try to mimick sounds their owner makes.

Jorge read this and brought up something he'd noticed before. At night on a couple occassions he has heard this noise which he thinks is me, whispering something he can't hear. He'll ask if I've said something, which I haven't. He's come to figure out that its a noise Callie is making. i've heard her almost repeat back to me whining noise on occassion but this is different...

has anyone ever had an experience like this before?

Has anyone experienced anything like this?

When I lived with my cat Layla (she just lives with my parents now), she started standing in the shower right after I got out. She wouldn't drink the water or anything, just stand in there and then get out. It was cute.

One of our Kitties "Meow" we noticed always goes to her litter box which is directly across from our main bathroom when ever I or my son goes to the bathroom. It's almost like she times herself to go when we do lol. She always walks in with one of us first then she goes straight to her box and does her business at the same time. She also starts whining and staring at you when it's bedtime as if to say "Hey, bedtime you nuts I'm tired".

We got that litter box/bathroom thing down to a art! They lay around the house all day but when I go to bed, they ALL come to the bedroom.... does that count?
