This is a topic that I am super curious about. Every time I call my cat’s name, he looks at me, but I don’t know If he just knows it’s me or if he knows his name. So, today, on this post, at this time, we will learn if cats know their names. Here’s the official question. Do cats know their names?
Here is what I found on that topic.
In the simplest of terms, yes, cats know their names. Joanna Woodnutt, DVM, says that cats learn their name as they get older. “Just like puppies, kittens aren’t born knowing their name,” she says. But over time, cats can learn their name, and they’ll do so quickly if it’s associated with a reward. “Cats can even learn to come when you call their name if you offer them something positive in return,” Dr. Woodnutt adds.
I found this information at PopSugar.
So, my cat probably knows his name because we’ve had him for maybe 7 years now. If you just got your cat and you want them to learn their name faster you can reward them every time they come to you when you call their name.
How My Day Went
I put this at the end so the people who clicked on this post and wanted to see if cats knew their names could read that first.
So, today has been a pretty typical day. I woke up at 10:00 because I stayed up until 12:00 last night. ( because it was new years eve) Anyway, after I woke up I took a shower and got ready for the day. Then, I went downstairs and worked on my giant Q&A. If you want to see that post click here. After I finished that, I ate lunch. We had turkey and cheese sandwiches. After we had turkey and cheese sandwiches, I went back to working on my post.
I think I might have slept for a little while because this day has been pretty short. Or maybe it is because I woke up at 10:00. Well, then I made a vanilla drink like the ones at Starbucks. And now we are here. I am working on another post for today because I didn’t have anything else to do. It is also because I had that question in my mind at the time. The reason I had that question in my mind is that my cat was sliding across the floor playing with his toy and I was just wondering.
Anyway, have an amazing day. I’m also about to go eat dinner. BYE!
