Emphasis on the Word "Capable"

While looking for something else, I found this tactful and accurate statement on the website for Ernest Hemingway's house in Key West: "Cats are capable of learning and responding to their names, particularly if they have an affectionate relationship with the person who calls them." 

Meaning, they can do it if they feel like it.

No kidding.

  1. Hahahahaha. CATS. I like cats but I do appreciate how dogs will answer to their names and get excited if you come back to them. That is a nice feature of dogs.

    1. To which I can only say: Some cats do that, too. Little Maggie meets me at the door when I come home with this kind of charm and tiny mews.
