Dogs are at least twice as smart as cats.


>the journal Frontiers in Neuroanatomy reports that dogs' brains have more than twice as many cortical neurons — the cells linked to thinking, planning and complex behavior — than cats' brains do.

Oh and also
Because cats have big attentive eyes people always think they're pensitive and wise, but I've always known they were just dense.
"they understand they just choose not to listen"
Yeah sure

Dogs can understand a bigger and more meaningful vocabulary than cats can, and some can carry out a given job, but their stereotypical frantic nature can make them seem like simpletons. Cats seem wise and reserved when in reality they are just lazy. Source: I grew up with 16 dogs and 6 cats, currently have 2 cats. Both animals make good pets but they are very different creatures.

actually cats' neurotransmitters fire at a much higher speed than most mammals including humans and dogs which is why we have always been impressed with their agility, reflexes, and hunting prowess. as a trade-off for this intense pace of neural activity cats require more sleep per day than most mammals. they aren't lazy they are just operating at max nervous power all the time so it drains them faster than us.

that being said, of fucking course dogs are smarter, anyone who has spent any time at all around both animals could easily conclude this. cats are barely capable of learning while dogs are capable of learning countless complex tasks, jobs, codes, etc. it's largely due to pack hunting vs. solo hunting. canines had to evolve better communication and cooperation skills while cats just had to be sneaky and agile without as much complex thought

i would only get a dog based on the preface that it is an intelligent animal capable of loving me. unlike say, a hamster

i think animals are great and all. i really dote on them, i think of them as little people and try to think of their needs and all that

but imposing a concept like "love" on the behaviour of a lesser animal is just..misguided. At the end of the day they depend on you and feel positive about your companionship and presence. love is a ridiculous assumption that holds no bearing on their emotional spectrum.

why is our hippocampus and amygdala more hippocampus and amygdala than theirs?
