They Hear Us. They Just Don’t Care.

If you’ve owned a cat, you won’t be surprised by this study. Scientists at the University of Tokyo have confirmed what us cat owners have known for years: cats can recognize our voices, yet they often choose to ignore us!

To me, this is what makes cats so intriguing. We really have to work to win their affection! Dogs manifest their affection easily: they come when you call, they wag their tails, they greet you at the door. Cats, however, only deign to show us affection when they feel like it. But it’s worth trying to win them over, isn’t it?
