People have always debated on whether cats or dogs are smarter, but scientists can’t give a definite answer for one simple reason. Cats don’t seem to cooperate with their experiments.

One behavioral scientist said, “We did one study on cats—and that was enough!” He said when cats are put in experimental conditions to try and make them show a cognitive ability, like counting, “they just walk away.”

So by refusing to be measured and identified by a number, cats may be exhibiting more intelligence than the scientists trying to measure it. That should prove that cats are not only smarter than dogs, but smarter than many people as well.
