You may not necessarily be aware of the fact that your kitten will use, in order to make contact with you, all the communication techniques that are particular to the species. It will therefore expect you, its new parents, not only to adequately be able to understand its messages, but equally expect you to answer them as clearly as the members of its natural family. If, following a number of fruitless attempts, it becomes obvious to the cat that it's all to no avail, discouragement will ensue, since there is no more hope for communication, outside the basic topics of  I am hungry  or  I am thirsty . At that point, the cat will no longer be living with you, but merely be near you. This is, sometimes, how  cat-fathers  or  cat-mothers  have the feeling that they live in the home of their cat's as opposed to the other way round.

You do not need to be a specialist in animal behavior to develop a rapport with your feline companion. I am inclined to think that, the more empirical your approach is, the more fruitful the outcome.

The first principle is as follows: Like most (or all) animals, your cat will never be equipped with speech abilities. Cats will manage to understand a lot of what you tell them (and probably more than what you think). And if you address them directly, you are then in a better position to get a response. If you are trying to communicate with your cat, you have no option but that of accepting what is proposed to you. Since, to start with, you do not actually know your cat, you will have to invest yourself in some education in that field. It consists in a thinking process, similar to that of learning a foreign language, at the same time, simpler and more complex.

More complex, in the sense that you won't be able to go to school and learn about it, or get an interpreter or even look up a relevant dictionary. More so too, because your kitten is unlikely to ever talk you about scientific or philosophical theories. Therefore the subject must be concrete, immediate and, overall, easy to identify. You will be surprised to find out what a fantastically patient teacher your cat is. Just by looking at you, it will make a point of repeating a phrase or sentence, as many times as necessary until it has made absolutely sure that you have understood everything. There is one condition, however, your cat must be convinced that you are listening carefully.

If it turns out that your efforts have proved insufficient, this will become immediately obvious and your cat will be discouraged. Your cat will stop trying, probably thinking that you are an incurable deaf person!. However, with some luck, a kind of communication may subsist, although that will be in one direction only. You will merely be able to make your cat understand that lunch is ready, but don't expect a message in return!. Each of you will carry on living its own world, probably on friendly terms, but the cat being on one side and the human on the other. Admit this would be a shame!
