Cats understand their names and are probably just choosing to ignore you, a study suggests

It's a mystery to me why " Stupid Fatso " doesn't come when I call.

I hear their next "ground breaking" study will be on why men prefer regular beer to "light" beer.

"Probably"? Sort of like when the kid says "I didn't hear you tell me to mow the yard" probably.

Footnote: A cat named Yoko Ono not only ignored it's owner, but threatened to violently scratch it's owner and cause death.

"Here Fukukuda"

"What does Fukukuda mean?"

"Screw a fish."

"The cat appears to want to scratch you to death."

"You should see Yoko Ono."

My cat not only knows her name, Maggie, but will also come when I call her. I recently lost my male cat, Ozzie, to kidney disease and whenever I'd call his name he'd make a noise like he was answering me. They also understand the phrases, do you want to eat and are you hungry. If my Maggie doesn't think I'm feeding her fast enough she'll hit me on the mouth with her paw. You know, it just occurred to me that I may need to start getting out more.

This took a study? Around here, all it takes is one cat!
