Do cats recognize their own names?
Indeed, cats do recognize their own names. I trained “THE” Feisty Feline to come by calling her name. A study published in the journal Scientific Reports in 2019 found that cats were more likely to look in the direction of their owner when their name was called than when a random word was said. The study also found that cats were more likely to respond to their name when it was said by their owner than by a stranger.
However, it's important to note that cats don't always respond to their name when they're called. This is because cats are independent animals and they don't always feel the need to obey their owners. Additionally, cats may be more likely to ignore their name if they're not interested in what their owner wants.
Overall, though, it's clear that cats do recognize their own names. This is a good thing, because it means that we can use their names to get their attention and communicate with them.
