Is "Meow" Protected Speech?

We read:

"Meow. A district judge has been asked to decide whether that word is a harmless taunt or grounds for misdemeanor harassment. Jeannette police charged a 14-year-old boy for "meowing" whenever he sees his neighbor, 78-year-old Alexandria Carasia.


Seems to me that if meow is a word it should be protected by the First Amendment -- or there are a lot of "offensive" cats around!
