Cats Know Names, But Won't Answer to Them

Researchers in Japan are obsessed with cats, probably due to childhoods swamped in Hello Kitty. A few years back, they discovered that cats know their own names, even if they usually won’t respond when you call them. Now they’ve learned that cats know the names of their feline friends, too. Maybe they want to know if you’re giving treats to other kitties instead of them.
