    Do cats know they are cats? Do you ever tell cats “ you’re a cat”? Sometimes I tell my cats they are cats. :catface:

    I call every cat "kitty-cat" out of principle, even when I do know their names.

    I tell my cat I'm the alpha cat but he still doesn't listen to me.

    I think he's referring to jazz musicians. Yes, they cool and know it.

    I tell a cat who is overly angsty "you're a *****".

    Edit: Damn it swear word filter!
    That's a perfectly valid name for a cat. [And a synonym for a coward, which makes the pun work and you censor me just because some use it as a synonym for the female anatomy. Learn some context!]

    Some of 'em know quite a few words...

    Maybe my cats are becoming a bit human, or I'm becoming a bit cat.

    My wife Sara claims that when our cats became older they said words. I guess I wasn't listening close enough.

    I'm sure they know that other cats are of the same tribe as they are, i.e. not foxes or birds or dogs.

    But I doubt that they have an actual thought symbol to articulate the idea to themselves that cathood is the thing that unites them and that they themselves are cats.

    They can condisend to pick up a few human words, 'food' and 'treats' sees them running from all directions. And we have 3 that can definitely say what sounds like 'out' if they want a door opening for them.

    You should feel privileged to have
    any attention from a cat...even abuse.
