Mews and Nips: Your Cat Isn’t Ignoring You
While a (very) few cats may come when they’re called, most of us have probably experienced the aloofness that seems to come natural to many cats. I like to call it “selective hearing.” Ruby and Allegra sometimes respond when I call them, but they ALWAYS respond when I shake the treat bag! A study done at the University of Tokyo showed that cats are listening, and are able to recognize their human’s voice. They just won’t necessarily do what we’d like them to do – after all, they’re cats. You can read more about the study on the Animal Rescue Site Blog.

Today’s video cracked me up. Listening to Bohemian Rhapsody will never be the same again.
Have a great weekend!
