Can Cats Find Their Way Home ?


Apartment Listing  

People do know that cats have homing instincts. In fact, there are a lot of stories about cats going back to their old homes when the family shifts the residence. Such stories have led researchers to study the navigational skills of a cat, and they have found that there is an inborn navigational ability in cats. It is similar to the homing instincts of birds.

Researchers believe that the cat automatically computes the angle of the sun in relation to its home at certain hours. So, when he is in a different place at that particular time, the position of the sun is also different. So, the cat starts tracing the direction till the sun gets to be in the correct place and thus, it reaches home. Home is also characterized by well-known sights and smells. These also help in guiding the cat home. 

Another way to look at it is to realize that their brain cells act like compasses. No matter where they are, or how far they are from their home, they know which way is north and thereby, finding their way back home. 

Sometimes, storms will scare the cat away, but in no way will it disorient them. Once the storm is over and the cat gets over its fright, it will find its way back home. 

In case you have shifted your house, it will be wise to keep your cat indoors for at least a month. It might take that long for the cat to reset its senses to the new home.

Therefore, it can be said confidently that yes, cats can find their way home without any problems.
