I have a beautiful, blue point Siemese cat named lucy. My cat Lucy is very intelligent. When I was a child my mother would call out my name all the time. every time this happend lucy would follow me down the stairs as I went to see why my mother was calling me. When I got to my mother I would look at her and say "what" or "what do you want. over the years I noticed that Lucy would always come to her name. one time she was half way down my block about four to five houses down I call out her name the same way my mother used to call me, even used the same tone in my voice as my mother had. On the first call I see lucy running down the sidewalk and I hear the little ringing of the bell on her coller. As soon as she gets to me she stops right in front of me and looks at me straight in the eyes and says meow meow as if she was saying "what do you want"
