How do cats recognize their owners?

 

Does my cat recognize me? This is the question many cat owners ask themselves. In fact, it is not unusual to call your pet without receiving an answer. However, it must be noted that your cat distinguishes you among other people in different ways.

1. The odour

Your cat distinguishes you, partly through your odour. In fact, with an extremely developed sense of smell, it is easy for the animal to distinguish you from others with this method.

 

2. The sound

It is usual to call your cat without receiving any reaction from it. This situation is common among cats. They want to turn a deaf ear. Do not doubt though! Your cat may distinguish you among other people, only with your voice.

In 2013, some scientists of Tokyo University had demonstrated that cats were responsive about their owner’s voice recording while they completely ignore other voices.
