Can cats really sense when someone is about to die, or when an earthquake is about to hit?
In terms of senses, cats have the edge over humans: They can hear sounds at greater distances and wider frequencies; their noses are more sensitive; they have better peripheral vision; and their whiskers can pick up subtle changes in air pressure. It is no surprise then that your cat will often skip to the door long before you notice that someone is coming.
What Your Cat Knows explores the fascinating world of feline cognition. It examines the five basic senses and presents a cat’s-eye view of the world, helping you to understand and communicate with your own kitty, and presents practical tests and activities that will help you gauge and even boost your cat’s intelligence. It also considers a question familiar to owners of the most intelligent cats: Does your cat have a sixth sense?
