Cats can hear better than dogs. Cats can actually hear in the upper ranges of sound, from 45 to 60,000 Hertz (humans hear 20 to 20,000.) Dolphins, whales and bats all top cats’ hearing skills, but feline ears are still superior for detecting prey. Cats can pinpoint the direction of sound from eight meters to within eight centimeters—so your cat can definitely hear you when you call for them. If they don’t come, you can be pretty sure they are choosing to ignore you lol.
