Jack cat has had his name changed. It shouldn't be to hard on him, Hubby found a new cousin named Zack and made the choice to change the cat's name in honor of this new cousin. Since Jack and Zack sound a lot alike, I don't think there will be to much trouble. It's been my experience that cats come to the sound of their food bowl being filled more then they respond to names anyway. Blessings

My cats definitely know their names. As soon as you call them, they'll turn their heads and look at you. They might not come, but they'll definitely let you know they hear you. Well, except for Tiki who does a good job of ignoring her "mother" (my daughter) when Deb calls her. Her ears will twitch in annoyance, but she won't turn and look. But, if I call her, she instantly turns and comes over to me. It makes Deb mad!!

Most of my cats know their names. Even ELMER, the feral boy who does his best to ignore us, knows his name. However, I don't think "ja" and "za" are that different sounds, and the "ack" is the same, I'll think he'll probably not notice.

Hi savypat, The name is close enough and you are right about the sound of the food bowl being filled. I have two cats. Blessings.

I am sure he won't mind what's he's called as long as he is loved and you continue to feed him. I like the name Zack, I am sure it will suit him, just as well as Jack did!
