The Cat’s Ear

Cats have amazing hearing. The superpower aspect of their hearing lies in their ability to hear very high pitch sounds.  Cats can hear ultrasonic sounds, which are higher than the sounds that humans can hear.

One thing that helps cats with their hearing is the shape of their ears. Cats have outer ears, called the pinnae, that cats can rotate 180 degrees to face toward sounds.  Furthermore, cats can rotate the pinnae independently. These pinnae catch and amplify sounds.

There are four reasons that cats need their sharp hearing skills. First, cats’ natural prey have high pitched sounds.  Rodents such as mice generate sounds in the upper range. Second, the high pitch sound of kittens helps parent cats locate their offspring. Third, the cats’ hearing helps it hear and avoid their predators.  Lastly, cats use their great hearing to assist them in navigating their environment.

So, when you want to get your cat’s attention, remember that using a high-pitched voice will be more effective.
