According to a Japanese research team, domestic cats are able to separate different sounds or voices. But that's not all: the scientists also found that cats recognize their own name.
In their study, the Japanese research team played 78 different Japanese words that sounded similar to the names of the cats. After a while, the cats lost interest in the words. But as soon as their own name was played, the cats showed a reaction. They turned their heads or moved their ears.
It was surprising that this also happened when a stranger called the cat's name. It is thus refuted that the cat only reacts to the voice of the owner or mistress. So cats jump on their name, no matter who says it. But whether they obey, is another question.0 comments Login to comment
