In The New York Times, James Gorman theorizes that dogs may laugh, but only cats get the joke. “If I think about dog humor honestly, it’s really a kind of goofy, good-natured submissiveness,” James Gorman writes. “Dogs amuse us. Cats, I suspect, amuse themselves, as a creature unconcerned about its place in the corporation might well do. With a mouse, or a ball of yarn, a cat may play and be amused, whether we are watching or not.”

Then James Gorman concludes by stating: “So, I’m now prepared to acknowledge that some cats may have a sense of humor. Very dry and slightly wicked, I’ll bet.”
