According to NBC News.com, a new study suggests that- despite what we all know to be true – your cat isn’t totally ignoring you.
The key word there is “totally.”
The report’s in the July issue of Animal Cognition. Quoting the website article, “Dogs have evolved, and are bred, to follow their owner’s orders, but cats have not been. So sometimes cats appear aloof, but they have special relationships with their owners.”
(Like, sometimes they MIGHT share the remote with you. Or not.)
