I think cat in general are pretty smart. Not sure if they're smarter than dogs, but more of a different type of smart all together. She's not smarter than the husband otherwise she'd always want to dress warm in cold weather (which she dosen't)... now as for children she's at least as smart if not smarter...its a good thing she doesn't have a thumb or we'd be in troubble.

I voted for young children because teenagers weren't an option! My lovely 22 year old step daughter is here for a visit, but she is as giggly & silly as a 15 year old. I think the boys have her beat!:LOL::LOL::LOL:

Cant vote in this pull. I am missing a none of the above.
I am sorry to say but Decibel is the cutest, most loving and funniest cat ever.
But smart or clever she is not.
Her mother and father are half-siblings and it shows.
She is kinda like the child of cletus and Brandine in The Simpsons.
I love her to death but when you all talk about how clever sphynx are, I cannot relate.

LOL I always say that too! My sphynx have learned to turn lights on and off, tell time(they haven't caught onto how weekends work, though LOL) turn the radio on, open cupboard latches & unzip zippers on my tent when I take them camping. I always tell them if they had thumbs, I'd make them get jobs :LOL:

Wow....I feel like mine are on the short bus! They can't do any of those things. They can find the warmest spot in the house and enslave all those that live here though.

I'm sure I'm biased but compared to my other cats and even some small children I know, Piglet is pretty darn smart! I think she's genius-level in cat intelligence. Piglet can figure out anything and has a uncanny sense of her environment. She also scored very highly at her first animal-therapy evaluation, higher than most dogs. :ThumbsUp:

I have been holding it in for long. I am sorry It came out that way. It was kinda brutal. But I love my little ray of sunshine.
Stupid or not. I think she is the most perfect kitty ever.

Your description made me laugh too. I think it's incredibly endearing when some kitties are just not smart. We have a Ragdoll that is the least smart of the bunch and we love him for it. He's always making us laugh!

I voted smarter than most cats because there wasn't an "all the above" choice:LOL:
So far Miss Nudie Patootie has outsmarted everyone but me- although I'm sure I'm next!
