Cats Can Hear Better Than Dogs

Yes, you heard right.  Cat’s can hear better than dogs.  Although dogs are well know for their extraordinary hearing, cats can hear at 80kHz while dogs can only hear up to 45kHz.  (People, only 20kHz).  In addition, cats have an ability to rotate their ears, together or independently, therefore they can hear in all directions.  This helps cats while they hunt.  The slightest sound of prey and they’re on it.

So next time you call your cat and he doesn’t come, don’t bother getting his ears check, he can hear you perfectly well, he just chooses not to.
