You can’t hide from your cat, so don’t even try

Your cat is probably keeping track of where you are, even if your feline friend isn’t in the same room with you and can’t see you. 

Scientists recently learned that domestic cats create “mental maps” that tell them where nearby humans are located, based on where sounds are coming from. The researchers tested cats by playing recordings of human voices calling the cats’ names; they then played those recordings again, only this time through a speaker in a different place, so that the same sounds came from farther away.
