Your pet cat might understand you more than they’re letting on.
A new study by scientists at the Sophia University in Japan has discovered that cats can recognize their own names.
The researchers played each cat a clip of four random words, followed by the cat’s name, to see if they would respond.
They tested this using the cat’s owners voice, and a stranger’s voice.
More than half of the cats showed signs of acknowledgement when their name was called, including ear twitches and head turns.
Purr-fest you might say but it doesn’t mean they’ll listen to what you have to say!
