Cats intelligence

Cats intelligence
Cats are known worldwide around the globe and also known as a Domesticated animal which is furry and loveable well most animals are loveable. Cats are most common and go back 9,500 years since ancient Egypt.

There are many different types of cats around the world from the Wildcats to even the common house cat we call (pets). Cats are furry and have sharp teeth to easy catch there pray also with there sharp claws. So do Cats have a great intelligence are they smart?

Cats actually have 300 million neurons which are 140 more than a dog, dogs have 160 neurons. As well as this as an amazing fact, Cats also do have a lot more nerve cells which are in forms of there visual areas located in their brain. Which has more than any other animal and humans.

Cat's are very smart, you can't even go online these days without seeing funny cat videos such as cat's opening doors to be sneaky. In my opinion, cats can do a lot and they can understand humans, they can also go out at night and them come back the next day they do not need to be kept in at night.

Are cats smart enough to find their way home?

Cat's are very smart when it comes to finding there way around. When a cat either goes missing or trying to find there way back home they tend to use the magnetic fields. There are many stories of lost cats which have survived months and travelling over 200 miles and finding there way back. Cat's can find there way home easily, and not just with the magnetic field, but also their scent of smell and other senses.

They can also help us feel good when we feel low, depressed and tend to come close to use when we feel like this to try either cheer us up. They have some form of healing capabilities for our emotional needs they do care for us as we care for them.

Pros
Can go out at night and whenever they want Cats are low maintenance Smart and very intelligent

Cons
Can easily get fleas there poop or vomit

independent

I think cats are a lot more cunning and independent so I'd have to give the point to them. They also are smart in the way that they don't have to do much to gain affection and survive that way while dogs need to work hard and get trained to get their daily meals. Cats mostly just have to lay there and look cute and they get to sleep all day, while dogs have to serve their owner in many different ways.

Cats are way SMARTER than dogs!

Cats are by far the more intelligent. Dogs, on the other hands, are the most loyal.

I base my theory on a movie I watched. Gladiator (2000) starring Russell Crowe.

If you saw the movie you might recall the beginning scene where Russell Crowe told his men “On my signal … unleash HELL!” In the fight scenes on the battlefield, Russell Crowe aka Maximus took his dog along with him.

Yeah. Uh huh. I can read the mind of a cat. If the cat could talk to his or her owner, the cat would be like: 'You're going where? To the battlefield? Uuuhhh yeah … I'll wait here for you to come back home!'

You'll never see a cat on the battlefield. LOL.

I think you are right about cats. I have raised cats and dogs. Based on my experience and observation, I find cats a way smarter than dogs. Some time back I saw a photo on facebook with cats and dogs. The caption under the photo of dog said: you feed me, you take care of me, you must be god. The caption under the cat read, you feed me you take care of me, I must be god.

More wise

Having owned both cats and dogs, I can only say that the smartness of both pets is dependent on how you train them. Dogs are naturally regarded as man's best friend but it's how you train them and take care of them that they are going to be very useful to you. But cats are naturally intelligent even without receiving any special training. So, I would say that cats are more intelligent than dogs.

That’s a really good point about the training an animal may receive. I initially answered dogs, and my dog is very intelligent (maybe I’m biased!) but I guess we did invest a lot of time in training him.

I think dogs are more intelligent than cats because they are easily trainable although I think cats are more intuitive than dogs. I'm a dog person and I train my dogs to follow different commands unlike cats well I tried training one and it bit me.

Sharp Claws

Cats also have sharp claws they use to hunt their prey. They hide them very neatly that you won't notice them. They also have soft padded pals hat they use to comfortably walk without arousing the suspicion of its prey.

There heads are also smaller than their bodies. Where their heads can pass through their bodies too can pass. Their whiskers help them for sensitivity.

Dogs intelligence

Dogs intelligence
Mens best friend, common household pet, Dogs which are a fine breed and very popular we use them daily. We can see them in movies and rescue stories and also the most recent common use and very smart indeed is blind dogs.

In the UK blind dogs are very popular and are very smart. Blind dogs help and guide the blind helping them get through the day whether it is helping them when they are out and helping their owners crossroads to more. They are very smart at helping the blind and there is much advertising televised showing this with there intelligence.

They do also help the police with helping find clues or missing people to even catching crooks or finding drugs. Police dogs are very common and they help the police daily to catch drug dealers and so much more. There are many police programs on television and every time I see them there is somewhat most of the time police dogs shown. They are very loved and very smart...

Research shows the smartest dogs are a Border collie, Poodle, German shepherd but this is just a few on the list which they are many more. There are many uses for dogs which the most ideal one is as a pet. We all love pets from cats to dogs which are the most popular household pets.

Dog's come in many breeds but the love we have for them is unique. They know this as they have feelings to as well as cats. Dogs is mans best friend? But why do we call dogs mans best friend?

Calling dogs mans best friend is a common phrase we tend to use. The phrase was made by Frederick the Great of Prussia. This means with the working on the relationship and compassion with man and dog. Which is very common some people also class their dog as a family member, the love we have for our pets as I have seen many treating them like a human being. But just because they're an animal does not mean they feel any less in emotions they do have a heart as well and living and breathing.

Pros
Great if you live alone for the company very smart use for the blind Police training

Cons
They require training cost more money

I think it's pretty obvious that dogs are clearly the more intelligent pets out there. Of course, that doesn't mean that cats aren't intelligent pets. It's just that dogs show off their intelligence a lot more whereas cats prefer to just sit and be lazy all day lol.

When it comes to empathy. You can see the dogs are lot better. And they tend to be more protective. And for the same reason you can see that dogs are generally better companion for the old age too. I'd definitely go for the dog.

While it is a difficult choice to pick between the intelligence of cat and dog, I must say that having a dog is a better choice to me. There are a whole lot of benefits that you are going to get as a dog will more lively in the home instead of having a cat.

Dog

I am not a dog lover but I strongly believe in a dog's intelligence. Cats are just playful and very fun to be with. But dogs are more capable of understanding things. They say that a dog's abilities are very close to human. They are more affectionate, loving, and caring.
Dogs have the ability to learn and follow instructions. On the other hand, cats can be trained too but their patience and potential to learn are not great as dogs. Cats tend to easily give up and just play around while dogs are persistent and very cooperative.

Doggies for Life!

In all my years of watching the Television, I have seen so many dog that can do tricks and are so well trained, but never have I ever seen a cat do tricks and are well trained. Tell me, are there feline units on the police. Are there bomb sniffing cats out there? NOPE! because dogs are smarter and easier to train.

Longer process of domestication

Canines were domesticated by humans long before cats and, therfore, were the subjects of selective breeding for a longer time. The influence of it is not limited to their looks, but also to their intelligence, as partaking in a hunt alongside the humans required some training. Cats, on the other hand, were domesticated later and could do their original task (protection of seeds and beans from rodents) without close interaction with humans, and remained on the original level of intelligence.

Don't you find cats a bit scary? There is a tribe in my Country that believe that the are evil. I agree I don't like how they look at you. Have you ever seen a cat and tried to run away from it? You should try it, I promise you it will run after you. Isn't that a bit scary. It will react to you, how you react to it. If you stand and chase it without fear it will run away. That's why I like dogs. You always know where you stand with them. They either love you or hate you. They are very simple, so long as you feed them, you will be friends for life.They also become your protector in case of anything.

It's really true what you just mentioned about cats looking scarey especially when you bump into them at night by accident. The way their eyes glow would scare anyone if you are not used to it. I have come across some cultures where cats are linked to witchcraft and vodoo but it's not a generally accepted theory. Cats are good as well in my ways, if you have a rat problem at home, cats will get that problem solved for in just one night.

Me too. I find cats a bit scary. There eyes maybe make them a bit scary for me. In my country old people used to say that there are ghost/evil spirit (aswang or tiktik in our country) that eats babies, and that evil spirit can transform into cats. That is also one factor for me that made me a little bit scared of cats.

In our culture, black cats are believed to be an animal form of a witch. It is also believed that when a cat crosses your path, something bad will happen to you later in the day. Dogs are considered pets of certain deities as well as the animal forms of dead ancestors. However, these are just superstitions.

Cats seem to be more intelligent by nature. Even the untrained kind that may live in the wild do not just poop anywhere and when they do they bury their droppings. This makes tgem swifter in training and they tend to pick up behaviors pretty quick. Dogs however are always the better pets according to my opinion. When they have been trained perfectly they can be fun and also useful in many outdoor activities. I would choose a dog anyday as a pet cats tend to horrify me as they can be up inall places and it is harder to control them.

Exactly! You know well enough about cats and how intelligent they can be. Someone mentioned about cats dropping poop around and I was like that the person doesn't know anything about cats. Even when they are not trained, cats observe good hygiene as they don't poop where people see them. They most likely dug up the ground and poop inside and bury it. That is a high level of intelligence in my opinion. My grandmother's cat have killed 3 snakes in the house but if it were a dog, it would only keep barking and the snake will get away.

It is said that cats and dogs evolved at the same time, about 4.5 million years ago, however, the dogs have forgotten their true nature whereas cats still have their original nature. Dogs can be easily enslaved, however, cats are wild by nature. The incident you have mentioned is not linked with intelligence but with the cat's hunting nature.

i will always sip port the intelligence of a dog because it more useful to humans than the cats.For me though I always see cats as being more crafty than being intelligent. The intelligent one has always been the dog, it can secure an environment and csn be used as a detective and a trainer. Dogs are more sophisticated and intelligent than the cats.

It's true what you just mentioned about dogs acting as a protective animal against thieves. When you train your dog well, it can do those jobs well. It can alert you to any impending danger or intruder, so that you can take notice. Some dogs can kill an intruder. Dogs like pitbull can kill.

You can train a dog to do what ever you want him to do does not prove that dogs are more intelligent. In a circus, they train a monkey to ride a bike, or a tiger to jump a fire ring. Such feats are achieved through classical conditioning, it has nothing to do with intelligence.

I live on a farm and I find cat as much useful as dogs. Dogs protect from thieves and make us aware of strangers approaching. However, cats also kill rodents. Rodents can be a great problem if you are living in the countryside.

But if we are to go by the usefulness of each creature you know that dogs are more useful and more valuable and I think that's what the original post is trying to project.Dogs are more sophisticated if we are to compared them with cats.If we were to take statistics we realise that numbers of dog owners will out weigh cat owners.

I live in a farm and cats are also very useful for me because they chase away or hunt rodents. Rodents cause a lot of problems in a house, especially in the storeroom or granary. Cats are more like a house animal, because it protects from the rodents inside the house. However, dogs keep away thieves and burglars.

Dogs are more attached to their masters unlike cats. They are more emotional and passionate pets. They are also considered man's best friend because they know how to take care of their masters. There are some videos on social media platforms showing dogs babysitting. They are good body guards, I can say. Meanwhile, cats are less loyal to their masters. If a master couldn't feed his pet, the cat will leave and abandon him. This is totally opposite with dogs. Nevertheless, I believe both of them are smart and intelligent. It just depends on how you treat and train them.

I agree with your points. I have been raising dogs since 15 years and none of the dogs have run away from my house. I have raised cats since 20 years and cats have run away from my house many times. cats can never be as much loyal as dogs. You can trust a dog, but you can never trust a cat. You can train a dog but it is difficult to tame cats.

Our family never had a cat as a pet. Yes it can help by catching rats but for me it is just that unlike dogs they are mans best friend.

I have found out that cat seems to be good for playing and also for the cute things they do. But in reality the dogs are better companion. And they can make up a lot better things in that case. You can see that dogs intelligence seems to have more based on the family it is being raised in. And the case with the cats is lot different as well. I guess we learn about that from the experience that we have noticed.

I won’t point out any comments in particular, but I honestly can’t believe some of the nonsense some people believe regarding cats. I personally don’t think that dogs are more intelligent than cats. Dogs are simply more obedient, and us arrogant humans go and confuse that with intelligence. We bred dogs for thousands of years so that they’d do as they’re told, but we haven’t done the same with cats. It’s a fact that what we consider to be domesticated cats are actually biologically identical to their brethren in the wild. This is why so many domestic cats simply look and behave like smaller versions of their wild counterparts. On the other hands, the greater chunk of dog breeds look drastically different from wolves and behave differently as well, because dogs have had all the wild bred out of them.

Most of us will vote for dogs because we all know how they are easily trained, how they learn tricks and its true that they are really a man's best friend. But can we really call that intelligence or it's just there nature. For me it's intelligence cause even thought they did not learn it themselves they still manage to learn it with our help off course. But I'm not saying that cat are dumb maybe it's just that dog have a better understanding than them.

I think dogs has more emotional instincts than cats. I heard dog has 6 senses and the last sense they have is psychic ability. I don't think they have that kind of ability, it is just that their senses are strong enough to detect things long before we do. Before I am in love with cats and I hate dogs so much because I thought dogs are very stubborn and will bite you suddenly but one thing I realize that I can be so in love with dogs rather than cats because dogs are very sweet and caring. I just realized it when we have little Pony(dog name) in our home.

From what I've read, dogs have about twice the number of neurons in their cerebral cortex than what cats have, which suggests they could be about twice as intelligent. On my perspective, they are both intelligent in their own ways. Maybe it's just that dogs have the ability to understand and share the feelings of other people. Dogs can feel how we feel. Whenever I am sad, I can see how my dog feel sad for me too. When I am happy, I can share my happiness with my dog. I think that is their gift. That's why they are called man's bestfriend.

I'm equally a cat and dog person, and I appreciate their intelligence for what it is and don't prefer one over the other. I have a husky, and he's incredibly intelligent. He's quick to learn commands and understands what he should and shouldn't be doing by the tone of my voice, which really impressed me after I'd gotten him. My cat is intelligent enough to know what she shouldn't be doing, but she knows enough that she can get away with it when I'm not home or around, which it typical in cat nature. I can appreciate their intelligence independent of one another.

Intelligence is not about the tricks. My dog has some few tricks but I'm not consider this as intelligence, they just doing that for food to get your attention. But I really like the curiosity of the cat, and I think cat can do that also but they don't need it, because cats knows how to get their own food without the owner, and this is much more interesting for me.

I agree that dogs are more intelligent but I love cats and they can learn things too. I can say that cat can be taught and could learn from how you do things everyday. Cats are my favorite pet animal, I like dogs but it would be easier to take care of cats because they are mostly clean all the time. I have read that cats doesn't have any trouble distinguishing between angry and friendly tone of voice than dogs. I have cats that I taught to poop in the bowl and not anywhere in the house. It only just needs time and patience for them to learn as well just show them love and enough care to help them get you what you want them to do.

Personally, I like both, but I love dogs. My family has had dogs since I can remember, we don´t have pedigree ones, but usually dogs that are rescued or adopted. We treat them like another member of the family, they have their own space, and we they even travel with us whenever we have to. They have been great companions, and we hope to keep adopting dogs as long as we can.
