My 4 cats all know their names and come when I call them. One even comes no matter what I call him.All their names end in ee sound.

Hi newbie here, I have a 22 month old cat called Sadie that I adopted from the RSPCA in May she recognises her name I've experimented and called her using other names but she does not respond.I notice when I do call her she does not come straight away.

Lona respondes to Lona only
Mossy responds to Mossy and monkey.

Scooby respondes and I am not making this up "stupid", always when dealing with her its "stupid cat why did you turn over the water dish".

So all I have to do is yelled STUPID dinner time and she comes running. Its really really funny.

Now my dogs I can say "go find mom" or "wake up sami" and off they go, they know exactly what I am telling them, my cats possibly know but they don't care unless it has something to do with food.

I'd like to think that my cats know thier names but they only respond to them when they're doing something bad. Like they're on the table and I say in a clear elevated, but not yelling, you know just louder as if to be heard across a room voice "Buttons" and he jumps down and runs over to the cat carrier and curls up inside. They know when they're bad, they just need reminding. It's unfortunate that their names are only useful when they are bad.

It's funny cause I was just thinking of this. I re-named my cat Tola, and I have had her for 3 weeks, and just the other day she was looking down at the ground and I said "Tolaaaaaa" and she looked up at my obviously recognizing her name. I was surprised that she got it so fast!

My cats will look when I call their names, but as far as coming over - well, they're typical cats. One of them will come running when I yell " Bibbit - Milk!" because she knows she's going to get kitty milk. Another well come running every time when I yell "Dayday - treat!" I've heard that cats are smarter than dogs, so there' no reason to believe they can't learn their name. As far as reacting to it, mine just do what they please...

Chuckie, Winnie and Stormy know their names. I don't have to call "kitty, kitty" I just call their names and they come.

Blaze will NOT come to "here kitty kitty". She will ONLY come to you when you say her name

Both Jingles and Jangles know their names. Although, Jangles will only come whenever he wants.

My neighbor's late cat was named "Stupid." She had a different name at first, but after she pulled the same trick twice that almost got her killed, they re-named her Stupid. She must not have been too stupid, though, as she lived to age 22 as an indoor-outdoor cat.

My cats are indoor-outdoor and twice when Red Cat didn't come home after I'd called him about three times over a period of about half an hour, I told Purdy "Go find Red Cat." He went off somewhere and was back with Red Cat within 10 or 15 minutes. It might have just been circumstantial, but I do have to wonder.

Jinx and Charcoal know their names, Oskar doesn't but Sage knows her nickname so she will look at me as soon as I say it.

All the cats know their names here, even the 12 week old kittens.
