There’s an endless debate on whether cats are smarter than dogs and whether cats are smart at all. If you watch this video, you can see a cat who’s not fooled by the classic shell game where you scramble three or four cups around with an object hidden under only one of them.
This shell game often stumps humans but the cat is not easily fooled. That either proves that this cat is pretty smart or that the human doing the shell game is pretty dumb. In either case, the cat’s intellect isn’t in question, but the intellect of people who doubt the intelligence of cats certainly is.
