You have invested hours in choosing a cute name for your cat.

The question is “does she really knows her name?” 

Cats know many sounds like the sound of birds, predators, objects and so on.

Atsuko Saito, a cat expert at Tokyo’s Sophia University carried out a new study.

In her research, she has proved that cats do know their names.

They can respond to their names even when called by a stranger.

Moreover, cats can interpret human gestures and recognise their owner's voice.

What’s even more surprising is that house cats are able to discriminate their names from other cats living in the house.

To conclude, cats can differentiate the content of human language based on the basis of phonemic differences.
