Can cats track down smells like a dog can?

Master Gamer asked:

For instance:

-Can a cat smell something and be able to remember that smell if they need to find it?
-Can a cat pick up a scent in the air and be able to follow it?
-Can a cat sniff out other cats if they are hiding?

I know a pretty good amount about cats but I don’t know about this.
Lol! Some cats are lazy.

About MamaMia

Mama Mia is a busy catwoman. Aside from kids, cats, and running from mice and cockroaches, her worst vice is she enjoys a long swim every morning, practices Falun Gong and EFT and donates unsolicited advice where inappropriate. And to make matters even better, MamaMia eats lots of fruits & veggies and force-feeds poor CatCamille.

    Crazy Cat going mad

    Cats have a great sense of smell and are able to follow it and they can smell other cats. Cats have been known to be lost and yet find their way back home probably using the sense of smell.

    I’ve known of a cat that was lost and found their way back two weeks later even though she lost weight.

    Hope this helps answer your questions.

    Michelle,
