My cat definitely understands his name and will almost always respond by mewing or come when called.

Loki is a smart cat.

Daisy is my second cat who responds to her name by turning her head to look at me (or just her ears). You would have thought Emily and Wilbur did not know theirs.

Well, she does meow when I put her in the carrier for a vet appointment . . . very loudly.

Her purrs are not always audible. She usually prefers to just lick me.
