How does my cat know I’m coming home? — 2 Comments

  1. I’ve pondered this for many years and, really, have no conclusion.
    Do animals have a sense of time? Don’t know.
    However, in my case with feral colonies, they recognize my car, my appearance from quite a distance, and my pace.
    To me, it confirms that a cat’s sight is their greatest asset.

    • I think they use all their senses and their ability to gauge time. One thing I did not mention in the article was that perhaps cats can gauge time just like us. Humans can tell roughly how many hours have passed since we saw someone and we can judge the time of day fairly accurately without a watch. Perhaps cats can do this as well as us.

      Cats certainly do recognise a lot about us through sight.
