When you say your cat’s name, your kitty will react. If you are ignored, kitty is in a mood.
A new study reveals that cats do respond when you call their name. However: It’s not so much that they know what the name means; but that they associate the sound with getting food, treats or affection.
Since cats hear their names a lot, it becomes special to them.
This is the first experimental evidence that shows cats can differentiate the words we say.
