So you know when you try to call your cat over to you and it straight up just does what it wants? Turns out, they do understand you, they just choose to ignore you.
According to a new study out of the University of Tokyo, cats do recognize their own names, and probably a lot of other words, just like dogs. The big difference between dogs and cats is what they choose to do with their understanding. Dogs will definitely come when you call them, and perform tricks on command. Cats could. They just choose not to.
Because they’re jerks.
And we wouldn’t have it any other way.
