Everyone must be very curious about whether cats can understand human speech. Checked a lot of information. Most people who have had cats think that cats can understand, because after they finish talking to the cat, the cat does it.

A small number of people feel that the cat can't understand, because they talk to the cat and the cat hardly responds. The cat is a maverick animal, even if it understands it, it does not necessarily follow it, and it will do things that are beneficial to it, whether others say it or not, it will do it instinctively.

Therefore, it is impossible to judge whether the cat understands based on these alone.

According to the understanding and summary of cats, netizens generally think that cats can understand some simple vocabulary. Even if they don't fully understand, they can judge what the owner wants to express based on the expressions and movements of people. It's just that sometimes they are too lazy to pay attention to their masters. The reasons are as follows:

1. People who have really raised cats can basically understand what cats want to express in their daily lives. You can tell by the cat's meow whether it's hungry or wants its owner to play with it, or if it's time to change the cat litter. You can also judge whether the cat is joking or angry by the strength of the cat's bite and scratching.

Similarly, when the owner blames the cat for his dissatisfaction, the cat can also feel the owner's anger. When the owner praises the cat, the cat also knows that the owner is in a good mood at the moment.

So even if the cat doesn't understand some vocabulary, it can judge which things the owner wants it to do and which things the owner doesn't want it to do by observing the owner's expression, demeanor, movement, voice, etc. Generally speaking, the general meaning is understandable.

2. Experiments published in the Journal of Animal Cognition in 2013 showed that cats can distinguish the owner's voice and understand their own names. When strangers call their names, they will turn their heads and shake their ears.

And when their owners called them by name, they wobbled more often. And they have no other action since then. It shows that their response at that time was not a conditioned reflex when they wanted to eat, but only when they remembered their own names.

It can remember its own name and, of course, other words. Can distinguish the master's voice, but also can distinguish other voices.

When it hears some words many times and at the same time connects the master's next behavior, it can understand the meaning of the master according to these words, and gradually remember the meaning of these words.

Although it is not exactly the same as the meaning explained in the dictionary, it is almost understandable.

The cat actually understands what you're saying, it just doesn't want to talk to you.

Last but not least, if you're still pondering the question of who owns you and your cat, it's naive: cats look cute and harmless, but they have a lot going on inside. Research over the past few years has continued to prove that in the eyes of a cat, you are its slave.
