Japanese Study Finds Cats Can Recognize Their Own Names

Japanese Study Finds Cats Can Recognize Their Own Names:  A new study out of Japan shows that cats' grasp of our words is closer to a dog's than we think, as researchers determined that cats are quite capable of recognizing the sound of their own names, even when said among a bunch of words that have the same length and accents.  Of course, recognizing that you’ve called their name - and having them actually give a good crap that you have - are two entirely different things.

Not everyone knows that whales evolved from land mammals. We think of life as coming from the sea so we’re not all aware that any land life went back.

I'm wondering whether there was a period during which evolution took place at a faster rate...

Animal life on this planet originated in the oceans...

This "whale" had to have begun as a sea creature which evolved to become amphibious and then evolved further to become a thoroughly ocean going, air breathing , (mammalian?) whale...
