It's official. Our worst suspicions are confirmed. A new study shows cats know their names. So if they don't come when you call, they really are ignoring you. 

A team from the University of Tokyo watched 76 cats listen to recorded words that included their names. 

Although the cats seemed to tune out most of the human conversation, they all reacted when they heard their names, no matter who was saying them. 

But that didn't mean they ran into their loving humans' arms. They showed recognition by moving their heads or ears or twitching their tails

Clean Meat For Cats | A Kinder Way To Feed Our Friends

Manufacturers are working
on clean meat for cats.
Talk to your cat about sustainability and clean meat for cats, and he'll probably yawn and go back to sleep. For an animal who loves nothing more than stalking tiny rodents, compassionate eating is pretty much a nonstarter. 

But to a growing number of humans, the cruelty involved in the production of our cats' food is becoming a major concern. In an online survey, nearly 600 people said they're interested in feeding their animal companions a plant-based diet, mainly because they're concerned about farm animal welfare. 

The only thing that's stopping them is the worry that a diet containing no animal protein will provide inadequate nutrition for their cats and dogs.
