Dogs are at least twice as smart as cats.

https://www.nbcnews.com/science/science-news/sorry-garfield-science-says-dogs-are-smarter-cats-n825486

>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.

Thoughts?

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 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.

Studies say parrots are smarter than dogs (and some monkeys) so the reptilians beat us once more.

Dogs can join the police force and monkeys are our fellow primates, but new research found that parrots might be the smartest animal of them all. A new study found that African Grey Parrots performed as well as three-year-old children on a mental test.

The test involved hiding pieces of walnut inside one of two containers. "One or both was then shaken and the birds, which are used to the idea of the containers holding treats, used their beak to upend the one with the hidden walnut 70 to 80 percent of the time," according to the Daily Mail.

The high success rate means that the birds were able to link the rattling sound to food -- and even more impressively, understand that when an empty container was shaken, it meant food was in the alternate box.

"Such behaviour has so far been shown only in great apes but not in any other non-human animal," concluded researcher Dr. Christian Schloegl.
