Who’s smarter: cats or dogs? It’s a never-ending debate between cat and dog owners. People think that dogs are smarter than cats due to the fact that they’re much more trainable. Even when you are a cat owner, you also agree that it’s hard to teach cats anything, and they are often hostile toward people. However, this is not enough of an argument to make us believe that cats are not intelligent. Dogs are more sociable and willing to please humans by learning and responding to commands while cats just don’t like to be submissive and love doing a lot of crazy things when nobody is watching them.
According to scientists, cats are clever, perhaps even devious creatures, but just how smart are cats? And in order to answer this question, we have collected 18 photos that show cats are cunning hunters with a boundless curiosity, and are far more intelligent than we think. Scroll down to enjoy!
