How long do your cats remember?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Only, I want to know if my cat will remember me as I started University in September (winchester) and so had to move away from where i live with my mum (oxford). My indoor kitty is staying put at our house in oxford. I left Sep 24th and am not going home properly until december the 21st, for a month. I might go home for 1 night only at the end of november. Will she remember me?? We have only had her since she january...she is a little over a year old now...i am so scared she might not remember me but she was stuck to me when i was at home and apparantly recognises my voice when my mum holds the phone up to her

you know you are truly cat mad when you move away from home and the thing that you miss most, more than anything, is your cat!

Aw, don't worry! My fiance and I had to leave our boys with his parents all summer (June-Sept) and they didn't forget us.

My niece left her cat, less than a year old, with her father when she joined the Marines. He still remembered her four months later on her first leave. She said he even still let her trim his claws.

Oh I'm pretty sure your kitty will remember you!

Well, it depends. My sister adopted this cat (Ripper) who was supposed to be for her husband, since she already had a cat, but Ripper liked my sister better, so she was really her cat. But then my sister had to be in the hospital for six months. While she was away, Ripper moved her allegiance over to my brother-in-law, and it continued that way even after my sister was home again.

I'm in the same boat as you. When I moved I had to leave my cats (I had two tabbies) because I could only have one cat, and I didn't have the heart to break up the pair, they were such good friends/brothers. One is a very high strung (he will run and hide from everyone and every noise, he was recused off the streets, followed our older cat in) while the other is more mellow though a bit bipolar. I am almost sure the older one will remember me, but the younger one will hide from the me whole 2 weeks I'm home :-( very sad, since he used to be my buddy.

Basicly what I'm saying is I think it depends on the cats personality and how much time/playing you spent with him

In the case of my Persi, I am getting sick and tired of exactly how long he can remember things! I have a set of Russian dolls on my desk, those that go inside of each other on and on. Persi loved to take the smaller of these dolls in his mouth and run upstairs before I could catch him and then release them to watch them bounce down the stairs. Great fun for a cat!Not fun for me. He rushed down to retrieve the doll to take it back upstairs and do it again when I grabbed him by the head and took it out of his mouth. I deposited it in the desk drawer. He saw me put it in that drawer and now he is driving me even more crazy than before trying to get into that drawer. I finally took the doll out and moved it into the closet when he was not around and then left the drawer open so that he could see the doll was no longer there. Nonetheless, after months he keeps coming back to that drawer and inspecting its contents!
