Cats, unlike dogs that have evolved by learning to recognize human facial expressions, pay no attention to faces, yet they are able to distinguish their owner from other people, they know who pampered them and who gave them to eat. But how does the cat recognize its owner?
Cats do not use sight to recognize their owner and familiar people, but rather others senses like smell and hearing.
Can a cat recognize the owner's smell?
Cats have a strong sense of smell, not as developed as that of dogs, but certainly much more capable than that of humans.
They use the sense of smell to collect information from the environment around them, this includes the perception of the territory allowing him to distinguish the family environment from others, and the recognition of different animal or human specimens. Cats can therefore easily recognize not only the smell of home but also the smell of the master.
Can a cat recognize its owner's voice?
A study carried out by the University of Tokyo in 2013 states that the cat is able to distinguish the voice of the master from that of a stranger. During the study, some cats were subjected to listening to recordings in which their name was called by some strangers and their owners.
It was therefore noted that most of the cats sampled ignored the voices of strangers and showed no interest, but showed more attention to the call of the voice of their owners by contracting their ears as a sign of listening.
Cats may not recognize our face, or simply be little interested in our facial expressions, but one thing is certain, they recognize us, and although at times they may seem arrogant, they are deeply connected to their human.
The protagonist of the video today is a red kitten who went around the web for a really curious reason: he did not recognize his tail ! Anyone of you who read our stories quite often should know by now that we would love to tell you about famous four-legged friends.
When thinking about kittens, it can be normal to wonder if the kitten is kitten recognizes mom or less; if the mother recognizes her puppies and possibly why they do not recognize each other. Being able to know feline behavior is essential to understand any certain attitudes;
In this sweet video he sees himself as a kitten washes his paw while he is in his master's arms; the owner has in fact decided to wash it and share this video with the world of the web. Very often people mistakenly think that cats are not affectionate or that they are unable to show affection.
The cat remembers the ex ? In short, yes. But this is a topic that needs to be explored. The memory of felines, in fact, is a theme that greatly fascinates fans of the sector. Indeed, our four-legged friend is able to remember the face of the owner for years, even after their last meeting, but he seems unable to keep in mind that the upholstery of the furniture is not a substitute for the scratching post.
The body language of our four-legged friend is crucial to know how he is and what is going through his head. Centuries of coexistence increasingly in close contact have allowed us to improve the bipedal-quadruped relationship. Anyone who knows felines knows that most of their communication is non-verbal.
