Our cats learn to vaguely express desires vocally (with different style meows for 'I want to eat' and 'I'm scared', for example) and can do some simple tasks that suggest they are capable of slowly figuring out the world around them, such as knocking on the door knob when they want out of a room.
If one cat was chosen to live for a million years, after the million years were finished, is it possible that the cat would have learned enough to function at a higher level than cats do now?
E.g. would it be able to converse to some degree with humans? Open its own food? Other things?
