Science has proven it. Your cat is a bit of a jerk.
Researchers claim that, like dogs, cats recognize their own names. Their ear twitches and other physical reactions give them away. But unlike canines, felines don’t want you to think they notice, unless there’s food in your hands.
Dogs can understand up to one-thousand different words. So far, research has only been done on the cat’s own name. That doesn’t necessarily mean cats aren’t as smart. In fact, they might be even smarter since they know how to hide their feelings and manipulate their human friends. Jerks! (But jerks we love!)
