I disagree. I have had several cats in my lifetime, and more than a few of them knew and responded to their names. I experimented, thinking maybe they were responding to tone, or my voice in general.....but not so. It also bugs me, even when someone is being humorous, this notion that cats don’t care, or that they do not desire our company. That’s not true either, it depends on their personality.


Hello, Geslina,

I agree that it does depend on their personality. Some cats are much more social than others, both with people and in their relationship to other cats.

Generally speaking however, they are not as needy or dependent on that relationship as dogs are. Thus they are less likely to come running to their name, nor to perform tricks for us.
