Already knew?

A Japanese study found that cats respond to their own name as well as dogs. The research team assumes that cats are conditioned to use their names because they expect something positive in the process: food or a caress.

Whether or not your cat responds to its name also depends on the sound of its last syllable. Canadian veterinarian Dr. Uri Burstyn advises: "Twitter like a bird or whine like a squirrel!" The high pitched sounds of the potential prey will grab any cat's attention. Cat names that end in i are therefore particularly suitable.
