1.Cats have short-term memory and long-term memory
So cats can always use the litter box or food bowl at the same location (long-term memory), or if you move the litter box or rice bowl to a different room, they can also make adjustments in time (short-term memory). Much like humans and dogs, cats also learn through observation, imitation, and trial and error.
If the cat happens to use the above learning method at a certain moment, it can completely behave like a dog, but the cat is a believer in pragmatism of “what benefits can I get from it”. When dogs try to do something to please us and expect our response, cats will decide for themselves and when.
If the cat has reason to believe that you will give it a good reward, then they will respond to your call, sit down or do some other fun things.
2.The cat will also pay close attention to what is happening in the room
For example, some smart cats have seen their owners open the door, and then try to open the door by themselves. The author’s friend, the Siamese cat, has learned how to open the door handle to enter the garage. To prevent her cat from slipping away when the garage door is open (luckily, the cat has not found the switch on the wall), my friend had to add a lock to the door.
