Back in 2006 Dan Spano and his wife brought a new family member home named Akkodha. Spano and his wife soon discovered that Akkodha was super talkative. “She has her chirps and meows, and every day when I wake up, she always talks to me.”
Spano started talking back to talkative Akkodha like she was a person. The two would have sweet conversations that seemed to never end. Akkodha has always been an agreeable cat and almost says “OK” to every question her beloved dad asks her, literally. Spano started to notice that when he asked Akkodha a question, it almost sounded like she was replying with an “OK”.
And after several conversations the two had, Akkodha’s Ok became more clear. “And just from years and years of playing around with her and going back and forth, we’ve gotten to where she is now.”
But like most animals, and children, Akkodha tends to get more talkative when there is something she wants. “She’ll say it generally if I’m anywhere in the vicinity of the kitchen pantry that has her treats. She associates it with me and now she just wants to say it back and forth.”
Spano started filming his conversations with adorable Akkodha and sharing it online. “I think it’s great that we put smiles on people’s faces. They’ll say, ‘Hey, I need an OK this week.’ Or, ‘As long as she says OK, I know everything will be fine.’”

When she is not chatting away with her dad, the 15-year-old Akkodha just wants to be close to her people and get some love. “She’s very affectionate. As soon as I get home from work and sit in my chair, she’s on my lap. She’s always following me around, always rubbing against your leg hoping to get pets.”
“I can’t even imagine myself not having a cat — especially her. She’s like a part of the family. She’s never mad at you or grumpy, she’s always happy and excited to see you when you get home. It’s just a great feeling.”
