:: Tigger did not forget ::

Tigger in the bathroom

After nine days of not being at home,
we were worried that Tigger would have forgotten us.
I remember reading somewhere on the Internet, that a typical
domesticated cat have only an active memory of three to four days.
Implying that Tigger would have forgotten about us
when we were back from our travels.
Fortunately, this was not the case, and the familiar mew of
Tigger greeted us as the main door slid open.
In fact, Tigger sounded like he was both reprimanding us
for being away for so long (and forsaking him),
as well as showing his affection and joy
that we are back in town.
Apparently, in the grand scheme of things,
cats indeed have excellent memories,
probably lasting more than several days.
Cats adapt to the environment that they are in easily
because they can recall and recollect what they have learned in the past,
and adapt these memories to the current situation to
protect themselves throughout their lives.

I wonder though,
if I were away from Tigger for an extended period of time,
would he recognise me if I return one day?
