Yeah, Fred the cat answers the phone. But like that roommate you once had, he doesn't take a message or a callback number. The cat's human writes:
We first suspected that he answers the phone when my sister called home, "someone" answered and she heard a meow. When she told us we realized that there was no one home at the time. Eventually we got to see it for ourselves and this is the prove that he does it.
People are saying that he does it to stop the sound. Well, that's exactly what I do too. So let's call it answering the phone.
