It’s seven pm, and I’m standing in Sam’s driveway calling his name. Do cats know their names? Sam knows his. But either he’s out of earshot, or he’s ignoring me.
A few minutes later, when I’m starting to get really annoyed, a long, lean black cat suddenly appears on his fence. Sam jumps down, rubs against my legs, and we go inside.
I love pet sitting for indoor/outdoor cats, but getting them to come when I call can be a challenge. While most cats know their names, they don’t always recognize my voice or the way their names sound when I call. .
