Yes! Cat’s Do Know Their Names! They Are Smarter Than We Think

People think dogs are smarter than cats.  This may be true.  But cats DO recognize their names and could probably do tricks too…they just choose not to.

I am a cat owner of a wonderful tabby named Apollo.  Had him for over 8 years now.  He has traveled with me through 5 homes.  And he greets me like a dog when I come home from work.  He talks, recognizes when I need a little comforting, and yes he knows his name when I call him.

A new study has found that cats recognize their names and probably other words too.  They understand more than we give them credit for. They just choose to ignore us.  Not a big surprise.   Dogs tend to obey commands more often.  But cats just choose not to.  You can read the Scientific American article HERE.

I will tell you this…if you are not a cat lover…a cat can make you one if it wants to.  Apollo has been by my side for a while and sometimes a little cuddling is just what the doctor ordered.  Adopt one from your local shelter today.  You will thank me later.
