Cats React To The Sound Of Their Name, New Study Says

April 4, 2019

Dogs aren’t the only pets who can recognize words these days!

Scientists in Japan discovered for the first time ever that cats can distinguish between the words that humans say.

It isn’t that they actually know the word is their name; there’s no evidence that cats assign a sense of self to their name. Instead, they associate the sound of their name with positive things like food and affection.

So when you’re saying your cat’s name they hear you...they’re probably just ignoring you. That's not gonna stop cat lovers like these two though!
